ABLCONNECT IS HIRING!
Research assistant needed for ABLConnect. The RA will collect and compose information on active learning in courses at Harvard and elsewhere, design surveys for faculty and graduate student instructors in order to collect and evaluate their active learning efforts, visit classrooms to record additional notes, meet with college instructors and build the website using the OpenScholar platform. RAs should be undergraduate or graduate students. Candidates who are comfortable interacting with college instructors (faculty and graduate students) and have an interest in enhancing undergraduate education and pedagogy encouraged to apply. No previous coding, excel, or teaching experience required, but they would be a plus. Pay will be competitive. Please contact Leslie Finger at email@example.com for more information.
So, what types of teaching do we support?
Activity-based learning involves fieldwork, public service, community-based research and internships in conjunction with in-class work.
