Based in Milton Keynes
Temporary contract until 31 December 2018
The Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) is looking for a Research Assistant or a Research Associate (depending on qualification), to work on an EU funded project – Up2U.
The project will be focusing on the context of secondary schools, often referred to as high schools, which provide secondary education between the ages of 11 and 19 depending on the country, after primary school and before higher education.
The learning context from the perspective of the students is the intersection of formal and informal spaces, a dynamic hybrid learning environment where synchronous activities meet in both virtual and real dimensions. For this, we propose to develop an innovative Up to University (Up2U) ecosystem – based on proven experiences in higher education and big research – that facilitates open, more effective and efficient co-design, co-creation, and use of digital content, tools and services adapted for personalized learning and teaching of high school students preparing for university.
