Citizen Science Doctoral College

CeiED Workshops

The Citizen Science Doctoral College – CeiED is a forum for discussion and training that brings together PhD students in Education and Sociomuseology, supervisors and researchers, around joint and interdisciplinary activities to support thesis research work.

It is a space for the co-creation of scientific knowledge, based on the principles of social and cognitive justice, which can contribute directly to the development of investigations conducted by its members and, indirectly, to the consolidation of a collaborative, inter/transdisciplinary scientific culture, attentive to the contemporary challenges of society and the place of science in this context. 

Its designation – Citizen Science – reflects one of the links between the CeiED PhD Programs: Education and Sociomuseology, which, with their specific objectives and programs, have in common the realization and defense of a public science that articulates research with the intervention in social, economic, educational and cultural reality.


  • Stimulate interdisciplinary work between the 2 PhDs in defense of citizen science.
  • Consolidate interdisciplinary dialogue and overcome the barriers of disciplinary thinking.
  • Encourage the culture of scientific debate, sharing and intellectual curiosity.
  • Create conditions to raise the scientific quality of the Theses.
  • Offer means of training to increase the completion rate of Doctorates

CeiED Workshops | Academic Reflection and Production

CeiED, in conjunction with the Directorate of the Doctorate in Education, is presenting an initiative to support doctoral students. This is the CeiED | Reflection and Academic Production Workshop, which aims to support PhD students in Education at Lusófona University during the development of their research projects. It is also intended as a space to combat academic isolation during the research period.

It is an informal space for collaborative work where students and teachers interact in favour of work based on debate and critical reflection around a problem or methodology. In this space, doctoral students will have the opportunity to raise their academic questions, concerns and worries, which will receive individualised attention and shared group discussion.

Here, doctoral students will have contact with their colleagues' questions and doubts. As such, everyone contributes with interest and commitment to solving problems. The workshop will also support the work of the curricular seminars, as well as the production of the Research Report.

In addition to the doctoral students' specific doubts, both in conceptual, methodological and technical terms, this will also be a space where general issues related to academic culture can be addressed. It is thus a space for debate and critical reflection with the aim of stimulating publication by supporting and publicising calls for papers in leading journals, conferences and congresses in the speciality.

The aim of this workshop is to stimulate the intellectual progression of the doctoral student by applying and expanding the skills acquired during the PhD programme, in order to:

  • apply the skills learned throughout the PhD programme to design and produce a coherent and relevant thesis;
  • promote individual initiative with a view to research.

“With the purpose of further integrating doctoral students in education, CeiED has been conducting systematic scientific production workshops. The activities coordinated by Dr. Carla Galego and Dr. Lucimar Dantas bring together researchers who are working on thesis projects in Portugal, Brazil, and PALOPs (Portuguese-speaking African countries). On Thursday, July 30, 2020, the end-of-semester activity was held, during which the doctoral students thanked the dedication of the professors and expressed appreciation for the care shown by the CeiED team and Universidade Lusófona regarding their progress as researchers and global citizens”.

Jacqueline Rodrigues

“The workshop led by Dr. Carla Galego and Dr. Lucimar Dantas has been of great importance in the development of my research project. In each workshop I attend, I am encouraged by the professors to read, research, and write, and this is directly reflected in my research”.

Dalmo Gouvia

“The CeiED workshops on reflection and academic production have contributed excellently to the elaboration of essential researcher knowledge, as the discussions held in the meetings address topics that reduce doubts and contribute to the improvement of research performance”.

Soraia Sá

“Participating in this workshop has provided me with many important guidelines, both for the development of my research project and for anticipating future situations that more advanced doctoral colleagues face and share. I must also mention that the discussions on relevant and current topics in the workshop keep us updated and motivated”.

Beatriz Koppe

“In the workshop meetings, we share readings and hear excellent tips on academic production, but we also express our concerns and worries about building the research project or report, making the process less individualized and solitary”.
