IMPDET-LE - providing doctoral education in the interactions between education and technology in a given cultural context

IMPDET-LE (International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology & Learning Environments) blended learning doctoral study programme, offers doctoral education in the fields of educational technology and ICT for Development. In the IMPDET-LE programme, the doctoral degree is received 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
  • design and development of real-life innovations in learning following a design science research approach
  • smart design: agile, participatory, inclusive and inter-contextual design of educational technology solutions

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 community and peer students.
