GRADEresearch is a complementary network organization for postgraduate education at the higher education institutions included and in the respective subject areas. Through a collaborative approach with the aim of providing support and structure for the doctoral students’ projects, GRADEresearch coordinates course offerings and seminar activities. The collaboration utilizes the joint expertise in areas such as research methods, research ethics, theoretical perspectives, tools for analysis, and design issues. The higher education institutions also cooperate in the supervision of the doctoral students and other activities.
A basic starting point in GRADEresearch is an interdisciplinary approach. Didactics, Informatics, Education, Educational work, Technology and Learning, Media Technology, Applied IT, as well as Subject Didactics are some of the subject areas that are represented in the research schools and which all contribute with different perspectives in research aimed at the digitalisation of the school system.
