Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The Nida Doctoral School (NDS) brings together a multidisciplinary group of practice and theory-based doctoral candidates researching different topics in the context of the visual and performing arts, design and architecture, sharing the common goal of completing a doctoral degree, to discuss and develop the methodological framework of their research projects. NDS provides a platform for dialogue and the exchange of ideas, as well as a space for sharing feedback and peer support.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Each day will include one-hour-long presentations by invited speakers and tutors, followed by one-hour-long discussions. The rest of the day will be dedicated to doctoral student presentations, followed by discussions and feedback (one hour per student). Invited speakers and tutors will act as respondents to the student research development work. The programme will also include slots for individual consultations.

To complete the course, the students must prepare for the course by studying a reading list, participate in presentations and discussions, and present their own work. In addition to the discussions around the overall topic of the School, students are asked to prepare a 30-minute presentation of their own research and practice. In these sessions, students will receive feedback from their peers on other doctoral programmes, as well as from the invited speakers and tutors of the School.
