Phase 1: 2015-2016
Announcement of Awards
The ITTE committee were delighted with the community’s response to the launch of the ITTE Research Fellowship Programme. A number of good quality applications were received which underwent a rigorous internal and external scrutiny process.
In making a decision the panel used the stated criteria of:
- Leading a review and synthesis of existing research on a topic of interest within the field of digital technologies in educational settings (systematic literature review).
- Projects that support ITTE’s aim to enhance the use of digital technology in all phases of education through effective teacher education and training and across the range of any UK curriculum.
It was agreed to fund 4 teams in total for the 18 month period of the award. Team leaders have been notified of the outcome. For the period of the project participants are entitled to use the post nominal, ITTE Research Fellow and the, special ITTE Logo as stipulated in the organisation’s constitution.
