The Grand Union Innovation in Learning PhD Training Partnerships PhD Studentships

A fully-funded PhD fellowship in educational technology is available at Open University. Applications are welcome before January 20, 2019.

This pathway is dedicated to supporting research into innovative approaches to learning, teaching and assessment. Its focus is on the use of digital technology to strengthen openness, inclusion and wellbeing, particularly where these cross the boundary between formal and informal learning.

The Innovation in Learning pathway is hosted by the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies (WELS), in partnership with the Open University's Institute of Educational Technology (IET), which together form the Centre for Research in Education and Education Technology. The Centre's vibrant Research Environment was scored 100% 4* and its research was ranked 2nd in the UK for 'Research Power' in REF 2014. The Centre is home to a large and growing community of doctoral researchers, including a substantial cohort of Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars. It offers a cohesive research community with many opportunities for interdisciplinary, collaborative and participatory research. The Centre's interests link closely to research expertise in the Oxford Internet Institute and the Learning and New Technologies Research Group at Oxford's Department of Education, creating opportunities for co-supervision and shared events.

The pathway welcomes and encourages interdisciplinary research in areas as diverse as openness and digital inclusion, the uses of learning analytics, MOOCs and the educational mainstream, open educational practices, the uses of social media and mobile devices for learning.

There are two main routes into and through this pathway.
