Postdoc Position on The Pedagogy of Challenge-based Learning

Eindhoven University of Technology is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoc position in engineering education. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

The Eindhoven School of Education (ESoE) of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has a vacancy for a fulltime Postdoc position on the pedagogy of challenge-based learning.

In their vision document 'Strategy 2030' Eindhoven University of Technology has indicated their ambition to move towards challenge-based learning (CBL) as a model for educating the engineers of the future. Central to CBL is that students acquire knowledge by engaging in real-life challenges, often in multi-disciplinary teams. CBL is an innovative educational model which is getting shape through the involvement of a broad variety of staff at the university, inspired by own experiments and knowledge of comparable innovations elsewhere. The development of CBL is research-based: the effects of CBL pilots on student' learning are carefully studied so the design of CBL can be adapted based on the research outcomes. The focus of this postdoc project is on the optimal pedagogy of CBL, in general and for different subgroups of students.

The postdoc will be based in the research group of Eindhoven School of Education. ESoE is the expertise centre of Eindhoven University of Technology in the field of the education and professional development of (future) teachers, and research and educational innovation in the STEM domain in secondary as well as higher education. ESoE is active in three areas: education, research and innovation. Recently the research portfolio of the group on research and development of higher engineering education has been growing significantly.

It is possible that selected candidates are first invited for a Skype interview and later for a visit to the TU/e.

The selection procedure will start as soon as possible. The successful candidate is expected to be able to start on 1 February 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
