IMPDET-LE (International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology & Learning Environments) is an online doctoral training programme run by the University of Eastern Finland (UEF). In the programme, the doctoral degree is studied either in computer science (Faculty of Science and Forestry) or in education/special education (The Philosophical Faculty).

The main research interests of the IMPDET-LE programme are:

  • educational technology
  • digital learning environments
  • computing education
  • computational thinking
  • interactive technologies
  • ICT for development


The IMPDET-LE programme follows a blended learning approach, which means that the studies can be completed online. However, the doctoral candidates of the programme are highly encouraged to spent some periods in Joensuu Campus of UEF in order to receive intensive supervision or to collaborate with the research community and peer students.
