DigiTeal Project Researcher
This post is temporary and part-time Casual Contract – 4/1/22 – 30/6/22 (maximum 50 days)
The University of Wolverhampton was recently awarded funding to coordinate an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project on Digital Teaching Literacy (DigiTeaL). The project is identifying how teachers’ work processes and classroom management changed as a result of the switch to online teaching during the pandemic.
The Faculty of Arts, Business and Social Sciences is recruiting for a part-time researcher to join us in the DigiTeaL project team. This post will contribute to production of the outputs and objectives planned during the DigiTeaL project. You will work as part of the project team and report to the DigiTeaL Project Manager.
You will work with project partners across Europe, and teachers in the UK, to gather data for the DigiTeaL project. This will include the creation and dissemination of surveys, and the set up, running and recording of focus groups and interviews. You will analyse and report on the data you gather.
This is a part-time role, based on a maximum number of days rather than a number of days per week. Working days are flexible and by agreement with the Project Manager, and will be concentrated around project output delivery deadlines.
We're looking for someone who:
- is organised and proactive in managing their own time and the project activities
- has experience of data collection and analysis, particularly via surveys and focus groups
- has existing (or can identify) network links with teachers in the UK
- is committed to keeping accurate records, maintaining confidentiality in line with the GDPR and meeting requirements set out by the project funder.
