Abstract [en]
This application is for a doctoral program grant to establish a national ?GRAduate school for Digital technologies in Education? - GRADE - planned to admit 12 doctoral students. One fundamental pillar of GRADE is the interdisciplinary approach. Applied IT, Curriculum studies, Education, Informatics, and Media technology are subject areas represented. GRADE will be conducted in cooperation between six Swedish universities; Umeå University ; University of Gothenburg; KTH Royal Institute of Technology; Mid Sweden University; University of Gävle; and University West Sweden.The role of GRADE is to provide a high quality research environment. Participating universities will cooperate in providing courses based on their expertise. This will imply that central issues with a bearing on the digitalization of education, namely school policy, teaching, learning, assessment and professional development will be researched from different perspectives and with different methodological approaches.The doctoral students will be admitted to third-cycle subject areas (disciplines) at the partnering universities and GRADE will provide a frame for courses, seminars, conferences, and supervision. It will be conducted both at campus and through different forms of communication-technologies.The long-term ambition of GRADE is a national center for research on digital technologies in education, with a bi-annual admission of doctoral students and a postdoctoral program.
