PhD studentship in Pedagogy Transformation for Design Engineering at Imperial College London (posted 3 Jan 2019)
Home/EU full tuition fees for 3 years, write-up fees, and an annual tax-free stipend of £20,800 for 3 years
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic individual to undertake a PhD in the Dyson School of Design Engineering in collaboration with the Centre for Higher Education Research and Scholarship.
The PhD will investigate pedagogical challenges and opportunities related to the development of a pedagogy transformation initiative with the working title of Visualising Collaborative Projects (VCP). The aim of the overall initiative is to explore how a technology enhanced learning platform can enhance project based and transdisciplinary working across the range of disciplines and course types at Imperial College and within the broader higher education context. The PhD study will aim to develop new knowledge and establish a robust evidence base related to educational theory founded on the principles of: technology enhanced project-based learning, equality and diversity, data and project-artefact visualisation.
The VCP is proposed as an initiative to transform Learning and Teaching in Project Based Learning (PBL) modules by developing a digital platform where projects can be proposed, discovered, developed, submitted, and showcased. The platform shall seek to enhance the pedagogic value of PBL activities, maximise the effectiveness and impact of projects, and facilitate in the evaluation of authentic assessment criteria through a range of tools for expert and prior work discovery, visualisation, and tools to encourage state of the art project and team management practice.
This research project is part of a major multi-disciplinary educational research agenda at Imperial College and will be co-supervised between the Dyson School of Design Engineering and the Centre for Higher Education Research and Scholarship. The initiative encompasses existing project-based work on the MEng in Design Engineering course and other programmes in the School including MSc/MA Innovation Design Engineering and MSc/MA Global Innovation Design programmes jointly with the Royal College of Art. Integration with project-based work within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and transdisciplinary elective modules offered across the College is planned.
Applicants should have a keen interest in Higher Education Research. Ideally, applicants have experience or knowledge of online learning pedagogies and/or the translation of face-to-face teaching into online learning modes, experience within or of Higher Education, and good knowledge of research methods as applied to educational research
Applications are invited from candidates with a Masters in a discipline related to pedagogy, learning technology, or online learning. Also refer to Imperial requirements for PhD studentships: www.imperial.ac.uk/study/pg/apply/requirements/pgacademic.
Informal enquiries regarding this position should be made to either Dr. Stephen Green(Stephen.firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Freddie Page (email@example.com), who will be supervisors for this project with colleagues from the Centre for Higher Education Research and Scholarship
Queries regarding the application process should be directed to Lucie Richards,firstname.lastname@example.org
