Posted by on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 in News.

The Vanderbilt Institute for Digital Learning (VIDL) invites applications for a total of four graduate student fellowships for the 2015-2016 academic year. Stipends will be approximately $5,500 per academic year (this is intended to reflect a roughly 5-hour commitment weekly).

Examples of possible projects include data mining of online student behavior; studies of student motivation with online environments; tracking organizational changes at Vanderbilt as a result of the Institute itself; researching a history of selected digital learning technologies such as mobile devices, and investigating societal implications of the technology; preparing, posting, and evaluating original educational online material on a selected topic, and placing it in the web of existing material in that area; characterizing and researching worst-case analyses of peer assessment strategies, rather than (simply) average-case analyses. Information on previous and current graduate fellows is available here.
