The EdLab (http://edlab.tc.columbia.edu) at Teachers College, Columbia University is now accepting applications for 2014-2015 Postdoctoral Innovation Fellows. Fellows will bring research and development skills in areas such as analysis of large-scale data, live experiments, adaptive learning, and social network analysis to support the creation and refinement of new learning tools and technologies. This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of renewal. The EdLab envisions, designs, and pilots knowledge projects for the evolving education sector. The EdLab is organized in small flexible multi-disciplinary teams, including design, engineering, media, product, and research. Fellows will join the research team and collaborate with others throughout the organization. Accordingly, there is a special interest in candidates who are skilled collaborators, learners, and educators. The EdLab is currently focused on the development of a suite of integrated learning tools (e.g., https://vialogues.com/accounts/signup). Fellows will conduct research to assess the learning impact of these tools, guide their refinement, and work with colleagues to propose additional learning tools as part of a new learning ecology project. Applicants should send a cover letter and C.V. to edlabjobs@tc.columbia.edu
