Aikaterini Kokkinaki, PhD student at the Graduate School of Education, has been awarded a Research Mobility Programme (RMP) scholarship to work under the supervision of Professor Peter Goodyear, University of Sydney.

The RMP, funded by the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), provides funding for a period of overseas research for PhD students and research staff to facilitate individual and institutional research links with WUN partners. Aikaterini’s project aims to establish and cultivate research links with Sydney’s Centre for Research on Computer Supported Learning and Cognition.

The RMP gives opportunities for research students to advance their research. This includes the establishment of new research links that could potentially support future international academic collaboration

This includes the establishment of new research links that could potentially support future international academic collaboration. I’m extremely grateful to my supervisors, Dr Jocelyn Wishart and Dr Federica Olivero who supported my application for this programme''.

Aikaterini has also received funding from the STELLAR Network of Excellence and the European Association of Technology Enhanced Learning to enable her to participate in the Joint European Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning (JTEL) 2012.

The summer school provides a learning environment where participants get opportunities to develop their research skills and collaborate with others in the area of Technology Enhanced Learning.

Aikaterini comments about her involvement at JTEL 2012: "I am excited to be a participant at the summer school. I have already started to make contacts with peers and look forward to meeting both research students and staff in Estoril, Portugal''.
