Educational Technology - Training activities



Cross-disciplinary training activities

The URV offers a range of cross-disciplinary training activities that doctoral students can choose to complement their scientific training.

These activities are common to all doctoral programmes. They broaden the knowledge of students, fostering generic skills and interdisciplinary relations between them.

See the cross-disciplinary training activities for the current academic year

Specific training activities

In addition to the cross-disciplinary training activities, the doctoral programme includes a series of specific training activities (some optional and some compulsory).

The specific activities for the doctoral programme in Education Technology are as follows:

1. Each year, two international seminars of Research in Educational Technology (one face-to-face and one virtual) (http://gte.uib.es/eventos/index.php/siite2014/siite2014) allow doctoral students to present the progress of their work.

2. Each year at least one seminar of methodological supervision is held. These seminars are compulsory for supervisors and doctoral students.

3. Students on the programme are invited to present their research results at the yearly EDUTEC International Congress (held alternately in Spain and South America).

Mobility and scientific exchange activities

The doctoral programme can be taken entirely at the URV, or it can be taken through distance learning if so agreed with the thesis supervisor. However, mobility is an added value to the doctoral training, so it is usually recommended that students undertake a research stay abroad.

If a research stay outside Spain is undertaken for a minimum of three months, and the requirements of Royal Decree 99/2011 are met, the doctoral students may obtain the International Doctor Mention.
