International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) in collaboration with its partners around the world launches the first Global Doctoral Consortium (GDC), a virtual network and knowledge hub initiated to support doctoral students in the field of online, open, flexible and technology-enhanced learning.
The physical meetings of the participants with the leading scholars will be organized during the 2017 ICDE World Conference on 17-19 October 2017 in Toronto, Canada.
The first virtual activities of the GDC (knowledge sharing, webinars and facilitating collaboration) will be held in autumn 2016.
Doctoral students may already sign up for invitations to register for the GDC.
