Workshop on e-supervision of doctoral students in Barcelona

30 October 2013

UOC, KU, ACUP and the International Association of Universities (IAU) are co-organizing a one-day Workshop on e-supervision of doctoral students.

Since 2011 the ACUP and the IAU are joining forces in the area of doctoral education, bringing together two projects: Project on Innovative Approaches to Doctoral Education in Africa, led by IAU and the African-Spanish Higher Education Management Platform, led by ACUP. One of the main outcomes of this collaboration is the development of the joint IDEA platform ( on innovative approaches to doctoral education.

The above mentioned projects led to the identification of supervision of doctoral students as one of the key challenges African higher education institutions are facing. In the recently initiated PLE-PhD project, as you have been able to follow in this blog, the UOC, KU and the ACUP are looking into how digital technologies, more specifically the web 2.0 tools, can respond to this challenge.

The Workshop will allow the participants to study this subject in greater depth. It is open to anyone interested to participate and free of charge.

See you in Barcelona!
