To help evaluate the Active Online Reading project, the School of History & Heritage is awarding several student researcher bursaries. This is an opportunity for students to apply research skills to an active project and work alongside principal investigator (PI) Dr Jamie Wood and co-investigators (CIs) Dr Anna Rich-Abad (Nottingham) and Dr Jon Chandler (UCL).

The student researchers will primarily be involved with gathering data on the reading practices of their peers via questionnaire surveys/ focus groups/analysis of online reading practices. It is anticipated that through the use of social media and online platforms, student researchers would be able to capture and record data users’ experiences, behaviours, attitudes and opinions in relation to Talis Elevate and other online reading tools and practices.

Six student bursaries of £500 are available to support the Active Online Reading research project over the period of up to twelve weeks, and we are anticipating a time commitment of an average of two hours a week, plus mentorship.

The deadline for receipt of application is noon (UK time) on 10th September 2021.
