On 19 and 20 September 2019 we invite you to join us for the PhD Days 2019! The PhD programme in Educational Sciences for Teacher Education at the Faculty of Education and International Studies (LUI) is hosting the PhD Days at OsloMet – Oslo Metropolitan University, in collaboration with the PhD programme in Pedagogical Resources and Learning Processes in Kindergarten and School,  at USN – The University of South-Eastern Norway.

Academic and Social Event

The PhD Days is both an academic and social event. We aim to bring together all PhD students of these two programmes as well as interested students from other PhD programmes at OsloMet and USN. The purpose is to learn about and discuss key challenges in educational research and to mingle and share experiences as PhD students. 

Distinguished researchers from different areas of educational research and experts in methodology are invited to give keynote lectures and to participate in workshops. The PhD Days include thematic sessions to discuss research design, methodology and methods, as well as sessions on academic writing (articles) and publishing, monography as an academic genre, writing the “Kappa” (extended summary) and supervision of PhD students.

Confirmed keynote speakers

Please note that this event is primarily for PhD students and PhD supervisors. Should anyone else be interested in attending the event, an electronic waiting list will be available in June if there are available places.
