10 SES 10 A, Beyond Teacher Education: Doctorates and Enrichment
This paper presents the methodology and results of EDITE, a Erasmus funded project (2012-2014) whose core objective was the development and implementation of a European Doctorate in Teacher Education. Five Universities worked out a joint curriculum: University of Innsbruck, Austria (coordinator); Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary; University of Lower Silesia, Wrocław, Poland; University of Lisbon, Portugal; and University of Bucharest, Romania. The European Network on Teacher Education Policies (ENTEP) acted as an advisory board representing the broader academic and policy perspectives of 27 countries.
Consultation processes – which formed part of the internal quality monitoring and exploitation strategy of the Project – ensured openness towards key actors of schools and policy, doctoral students, and the national and international scientific community.
Five major achievements can be reported:
1) The EDiTE Curriculum Framework outlines the aims and structure of the doctoral curriculum, its values and general principles, mobility aspects, the target group and related qualification profile, competences, module specifications, the research orientation of the programme and quality assurance procedures.
2) The Joint Seminars on the “State of the art of research in teacher education” and "Teacher education policies in Europe" supported the implementation of the EDiTE programme and reflected a high level of interest on the part of participants.
3) A national and European consultation process with stakeholders from the field of teacher education was implemented to inform the joint curriculum development and identify important exploitation aspects. It was concluded that, while overall trust is placed in the EDiTE consortium for its expertise to implement the curriculum, challenges are mainly seen as resulting from multiculturalism and differences in teacher education systems.
4) The EDiTE Knowledge Portal was developed as resource basis for future students and researchers.
5) The development of a piloting procedure (EDITE Winter and Summer doctoral schools) for pre-testing curriculum components and mobility strategies.
The progress of the project and curriculum development process is documented on the EDiTE website (www.edite.eu).
