We invite 70 European doctoral and advanced research students to a five-day Summer School on the topic “Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research Designs: From designing to publishing”. The Summer School will take place at the Department of Educational Sciences, Faculty of Arts.

The Summer School aims to:
• open and promote a European research space for collaboration and networking between early career educational researchers

• provide insights into contemporary research topics, research questions and research methods.

The Summer School will offer:
Morning sessions with stimulating lectures on various educational research topics with experienced professors as well
as opportunities to discuss and develop your own research project in collaboration with other research students and
experienced tutors. There will be a visit to the beautiful historical town of Kroměříž (UNESCO World Heritage site).
The five day course will be a mixture of lectures, workshops and peer group discussions. Students will be advised and
supervised by experienced researchers. 3 ECT credits will be appointed.
