COER Doctoral Colloquium

About the COER Doctoral Colloquium

The COER doctoral colloquium is an event that gathers the doctoral candidates who are either members of COER or being supervised by COER members. It is organized online every three months to enable doctoral candidates to present their doctoral projects, share their progress within the COER community and other peers.

The goals of the COER Doctoral Colloquium series is to offer the PhD candidates an opportunity:  

  • to share and discuss their doctoral projects/proposals-in-progress within the academic committee,
  • to receive feedback from senior scholars,
  • to receive feedback from peers,
  • to highlight theoretical/methodological issues/problems
  • to form an international fellows’ network for the doctoral candidates from the same research fields of open and distance education, educational technology, lifelong learning, and international education.

The event takes place online every three months under the moderation of one of the scientific committee members and gathers candidates from all around the world. At each event two PhD candidates present their research.
