INVITATION TO APPLY
We are delighted to announce Phase 2 of ITTE’s Knowledge Mobilisation Strategy.
For Phase 2 educators are invited to lead a small team in filling in the gaps, to challenge and strengthen research in areas relevant to the association through funded Fellowships in order to develop collaborative and/or co-ordinated research networks on a topic of interest to you within the field of digital technologies in educational settings within the scope of ITTE. Information on Phase 1 successful projects can be found at itte.org.uk.
Fellowships up to £2000.00/normally £1000 are available to be awarded to teams who ideally are interested in making a commitment to this area of knowledge in the long term. Further funding may also be available in the future to revisit and extend the project where appropriate. This approach of developing evidence is well established in medicine. See, for example, the Cochrane Collaboration www.cochrane.org.
Project Leads will be supported by ITTE to recruit a team of interested people.
For the period of the award, the Project Lead/s will be able to use the title ITTE Research Fellow in <the topic> and their team will be able to use the title ITTE Educational Researcher.
The outcomes of the Fellowship within two years are expected to be:
- a research review to be submitted for publication as an academic article in the Association’s journal Teaching, Pedagogy and Education
- a summary of the findings of the review written in a form usable by teachers and published as a MESHGuide.
- dissemination including a presentation at the ITTE annual conference or alternative agreed by the ITTE National Executive Committee.
The outcomes of this application round will be announced on the ITTE web site in January 2018.
