Two post doctoral level posts at the London Knowledge Lab
(http://www.lkl.ac.uk/)
School of Computer Science and Information Systems, Birkbeck College,
University of London
The Institute of Education, University of London

THE PROJECT
———————-
The Learning Design Support Environment (LDSE) project is funded by the
EPSRC/ESRC under the Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The main
focus of the project is to discover how to use digital technologies to
support lecturers and teachers in designing effective
technology-enhanced learning (TEL). Methodologically, our approach will
be one of iterative design and evaluation. We will be working with
academic staff to research, and co-construct, an interactive
personalised environment to enable lecturers to lead the discovery of
innovative pedagogical designs that exploit the potential of TEL. The
project is a collaboration between six UK Higher Education institutions:
Birkbeck College, the Institute of Education, London Metropolitan
University, the London School of Economics, Oxford University, and the
Royal Veterinary College. The two posts will be based at the London
Knowledge Lab, a unique collaboration between two of the UK’s most
prominent centres of world-class research – the Institute of Education
and Birkbeck.
