The EC-TEL Doctoral Consortium brings together Ph.D. students working on topics related to Technology Enhanced Learning. The Doctoral Consortium will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in an interdisciplinary and international atmosphere. The Doctoral Consortium will be accompanied by prominent professors and researchers in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. These accompanying professors will participate actively and contribute to the discussions. The Doctoral Consortium is co-located with and will take place immediately before the EC-TEL 2009 conference. The working language for the Doctoral Consortium will be English.

We welcome submissions on all major topics, to those of relevance for EC-TEL 2009. Submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the EC-TEL Programme Committee. Papers selected will be published in proceedings and authors will present their work in front of other students and senior researchers during the Doctoral Consortium workshop. Each accepted paper will be assigned to at least two scientific advisors who will provide extended feedback on the research. We encourage submissions from all PhD students, and especially those in their first years of PhD study.

The goal of the symposium is to provide a unique opportunity for PhD students to expose their work to an international group of academics and PhD students outside their home institution, enhancing feedback from their supervisors.
