IV International Doctoral Consortium
On Informatics And Informatics Engineering Education Research:
Scope, Methods, And Validation
December 3–7, 2013, Druskininkai, Lithuania
Vilnius University Institute of Mathematics and Informatics in cooperation with
Research Council of Republic of Lithuania Lithuanian Computer Society
- Offer a friendly forum for doctoral students to discuss their research topics, research questions and design in the field of computing education / educational technology – informatics engineering and education.
- Provide a supportive setting for feedback on students’ current research and guidance on future research directions.
- Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from researchers and students outside their own institution, as well as help with choosing suitable methodology and strategies for research.
- Support networking with other researchers in the informatics engineering education research field, and promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research.
- Support a new generation of researchers with information and advice on research and academic career paths.
Research summaries and biographies of the participants
The DC provides an opportunity for doctoral students to explore and develop their research interests in a workshop under the guidance of distinguished senior researchers. We invite students who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their dissertation work to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field. We welcome submissions from students at any stage of their doctoral studies.
