Aim of the project • The aim is to develop a joint degree program in doctorate education with a focus not only on a comprehensive learning programme (advanced studies) but also an intensive research programmethat creates a general framework for its students to realise their autonomous individual research.
A European project Itaims to develop a shared understanding on European teacher education highlighting common identity and common values of European teachers as well as to promote opportunities of teacher mobility among the member countries.
Jointdegree program • A joint program resultingin a jointdegree (delivery of the curriculum in an inter-universitycollaboration) • A mobility phase is part of the EDiTEProgramme. The doctoral candidates will conduct part of their studies at a partner university of the EDiTE consortium. • The mobility phase and individual student research is supported by a supervisory system with two supervisors. The first supervisor should be from the home university of the student, the second supervisor should be from the partner university where the doctoral candidate studies during the mobility phase of the programme.

The research modul • The aim of the EDiTE research program is to enhance the involvement of EDiTE doctoral students, as part of their learning in Module 2, in concrete research activities connected with ongoing research projects and with existing research orientations in the partner institutions. The program is therefore based on existing research activities and orientations in the participating partner institutions.
