CRADLE Fellowships Now Open
CRADLE is offering a Fellowship for Deakin staff interested in research in assessment in higher education. The Fellowship enables scholars to undertake research for up to 12 months in association with the assessment research centre.
CRADLE Fellows are provided with support and mentoring from CRADLE researchers and are actively involved in research activities of the Centre.
The Centre welcomes applications from post-PhD researchers at every career stage from early career to senior scholars. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the relevance of their proposed research to current research activities or interests of the Centre.
The Fellowship offers funding of $15k to support the CRADLE Fellow’s research program. We anticipate this funding will be used for research costs (e.g. research assistance or transcription), professional development (e.g. methodological training), and dissemination (e.g. conference attendance). In some circumstances, and upon application to CRADLE, buying out teaching time may be considered. To be clear, the CRADLE Fellowship is not a job, and carries no remuneration.
Guidelines addressing the objectives of the Fellowship, benefits of becoming a CRADLE Fellow and eligibility are found here CRADLE Fellowships
The online application form is found here: CRADLE Fellowship Application Form
Please contact CRADLE’s Research Manager, Dr Helen Walker for further information .
Priority research areas
CRADLE integrates assessment theory, synthesis, translational assessment and digital enablement in the following priority research areas:
- programmatic assessment
- feedback dialogue/coherent assessment
- assessment design (threats to integrity, use of peers and others in assessment, assessing without intrusion/distortion, learning analytics)
- practice theory approaches.
We're currently working closely with Deakin Learning Futures, faculties, and Research for Educational Impact (REDI), as well as undertaking collaborative activities nationally and internationally.
