The final conference of the EDiTE project on 3th and 4th July 2014 in Budapest
Conference had two parallel goals:
1) this was an opportunity to present publicly the results of the
two-year long development process realized in the
framework of the EDiTE project
2) was an opportunity for those who will take part actively in
the planned new doctoral program to exchange ideas about
the context in which this program is to be implemented, or
more specifically: about the development of teacher
education and teacher education policies in Europe.

The EDiTE research program
Doctoral programm/„doctoral school” is not only a school but
also a research community (a community of researchers).
The program is to help students from different universities and
research cooperation in various environments.
This would enable them to acquire new knowledge and
Learning environments
Participating in research project students beyond realizing their
own research project can take part in other research projects
being implemented in the doctoral school, with the purpose of
learning how to manage research projects, how to cooperate
with other researchers, and how to reflect on the outcomes and
processes of the project
Learning environments
Designing and negotiating research projects:
students beyond discussing their own proposed research design
with their peers and their teachers are encouraged to take part
in the design and in the negotiation of other Research Plans
within the partner institutions.
Work shadowing of senior researchers:
students can follow the work days of senior researchers in the
partner institutions and reflect on their experiences
Learning environments
Literature review and meta analysis:
students write a summary of the main studies and research,
consider the critical points of current knowledge including
substantive findings as well as theoretical and methodological
contributions related to their topics. Students may prepare an
overall synthesis of the relevant literature with an emphasis on
analyzing and synthesizing the main outcomes and conclusions
Learning environments
Journal clubs:
students take part in the work of virtual communities organized
around their research area to discuss and evaluate the reviews,
publications and research proposals of group members.
Academic debates:
students take part in debates related to their research field
through participating in virtual peer group discussions and
various regional and national conferences.
Learning environments
Problem discussion forums:
current problems of teacher education may be discussed by
various actors of teacher education. The forums can be
organized face to face or in a virtual context.
Workshops on research methodology:
experts in a certain research methodology lead the workshop
where students learn how to identify and evaluate the pros and
cons of a research method
Case study:
students analyze together a case study of a developmental,
innovative research project on teacher education
