Doctoral Research Symposium

The Doctoral Research Symposium is offered in partnership with Dublin City University (DCU) and the European Distance and E-Learning Network (EDEN). It takes place on Sunday 3rd November at DCU’s St Patrick’s Campus. The Symposium provides a unique opportunity for current and prospective doctoral students to share their research interests and engage with experienced researchers in the area. This will be an interactive event designed to explore some of the major research themes, problems and issues facing today’s educators in the digital-era. As part of the Doctoral Research Symposium participants will have the opportunity to hear lessons from other doctoral candidates, learn more about mentoring opportunities for doctoral students, and meet several editors of leading publications in the field. Lunch starting at 12:30pm is included and the Doctoral Research Symposium will end with networking drinks and light refreshments.
