Research Assistant / Associate

Knowledge Media Institute (KMi)
£28,695 - £37,394, Ref: 10673
Based in Milton Keynes
Temporary contract until 31st May 2016

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have recently come to the fore through high profile providers such as Udacity, Coursera, edX and the OUís own FutureLearn. According to some commentators this new initiative will radically change the higher education landscape through the provision of high quality freely available educational materials. The FORGE project will apply technologies related to rich interactive eBooks, social networking learning platforms and Linked Data to turn large scale Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) facilities into a learning resource.

The weSPOT project aims at propagating a scientific inquiry approach for science learning and teaching in combination with current curricula and teaching practices. It lowers the threshold for linking everyday life with science teaching in schools through technology. weSPOT supports the meaningful contextualization of scientific concepts by relating them to personal curiosity, experiences, and reasoning founded on a theoretically sound and technology supported personal inquiry approach.
