The ISCEST Family is delighted to extend the heartiest congratulations to Dr. Elizabeth Agbor Eta on the occasion of her ceremonial conferment of Doctoral Degrees at the University of Turku, Finland. The ceremony took place on May 26th and 27th, 2022.
Dr. Eta completed her Doctoral Studies at the Faculty of Education at the University of Turku in 2018. Her doctoral dissertation, located in the field of comparative and international education, examined the process of adoption and adaptation of the original European reform – the Bologna Process for the harmonization of higher education in Cameroon – a country with complex colonial and post-colonial history. Her doctoral dissertation won the best doctoral dissertation in Education in Finland that year awarded by the Finnish Educational Research Association (FERA). The story behind the ceremonial conferment of doctoral degrees in Finland is quite enlightening and interesting. Dr. Eta’s 2022 ceremonial conferment story continues on pages 4 & 5.
