The 7th Doctoral Symposium in Engineering Education Research offers an opportunity for PhD candidates to explore and develop research interests in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a number of well-known senior scholars within the Engineering Education Research (EER) field. During the Doctoral Symposium, the participants will share their current dissertation work with others and exchange feedback.

To this event, we now invite doctoral students in Engineering Education Research. Ideally, the participants have an active PhD research plan, so they can benefit from participating in the workshop.

To participate, please submit an extended abstract by May 26th 2023. 
The aim is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students to:

  • meet other students and supervisors to extend their network and view of the EER field,
  • present and discuss their own work and the work of others,
  • get perspectives from scholars outside their own institution,
  • contribute to the conference and the SEFI EER community with other participants, and
  • promote collaborative research and elaborate future research directions.

The Doctoral Symposium takes place on Sunday September 10th, as a pre-conference event to the SEFI 2023 Annual Conference organized by Technological University Dublin, Dublin Ireland. All participants to the Doctoral Symposium must also be registered to the main conference. For PhD students accepted to the Doctoral Symposium, the SEFI 2023 conference fee is reduced (please, check the Registration Fees).
