  • To offer a friendly forum for doctoral students to discuss issues related to their research in computing and engineering education / educational technology;
  • To receive constructive feedback from their peers and senior researchers;
  • To support networking with other researchers in the computing and engineering education research field;
  • To discuss the process of research and life in academia;
  • To provide seminars on different issues related to completing doctoral studies.


The consortium is designed primarily for students who are currently enrolled in any stage of doctoral studies with a focus on computing and engineering education research or educational technology. Students, who are considering doctoral studies and who have identified a field of research, may apply as well.

Doctoral Consortium Chairs:

  • a summary of his/her research, including methodologies used or planned, and possible results obtained;
  • questions related to the research that the applicant would like to discuss and get feedback at the doctoral consortium.

The document will be made available to the consortium chairs, senior researchers, and other participants at the doctoral consortium to allow preliminary feedback on the research. On the day that the consortium meets, each student gives a short presentation and receives further feedback.
