IMPDET-LE - providing online PhD training in the interactions between education and technology in a given cultural context

IMPDET-LE (International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology & Learning Environments) study programme, offers online doctoral training in the fields of educational technology and ICT for Development. The degree can be received either from computer science (Faculty of Science and Forestry) or education/special education (The Philosophical Faculty). The main research interests of IMPDET-LE are:

  • digital story telling & narratives in education
  • learning analytics - novel text mining and data mining applications in education
  • real-life innovations in education
  • smart design: agile, participatory, inclusive and inter-contextual design methods in educational technology

The unique aspects of the IMPDET-LE training are the combinations of expertise, its distribution over the Internet, and the intensive periods of work expected from students and their supervisors. The IMPDET-LE programme follows a blended learning approach, where most of the studies can be done in distance, but the student is also required to spent some periods in one of the campuses of UEF (Joensuu, Kuopio, Savonlinna) in order to receive intensive supervision or to get contact with the research communities and other students.
