[Xmca-l] Fwd: [UCLinks] Digital Learning position at UC Davis



Leee Martin

Associate Professor

School of Education, UC Davis



The School of Education (SOE) at the University of California, Davis
invites applications for a position at the rank of assistant professor in
the area of technology and learning. Digital tools and computational media
are increasingly important in the lives of children and young people, and
they hold great potential for transforming learning environments: they can
reconfigure how children and youth reason, collaborate, conduct inquiry,
and monitor their learning, as well as how educators facilitate
instruction, introduce concepts, assess student learning, and differentiate
their teaching, to name just a few possibilities. Access to these tools and
practices, however, varies widely across learners of different age levels,
cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic resources, and regional settings, and
innovations insensitive to that variation risk exacerbating educational
inequities. We seek a scholar committed to studying innovations that offer
new and transformative solutions to persistent educational challenges. The
specific focus is open; possible areas of emphasis include:



• A specific content area, such as social studies

• Intersections between technology and pedagogy

• Technologies across children’s development

• Educational access and equity

• Cross-context technology practices salient in the lives of youth

• Assessment of student learning, including learning analytics approaches

• Organizational perspectives on technology use



The position will be a full-time, nine-month academic year tenure-track
appointment.



Qualifications: Applicants must (1) have, or be close to completing, an
earned doctorate in Education, Psychology, Computer Science, or related
fields; (2) demonstrate an innovative research agenda with potential for
extramural funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the
Institute of Education Sciences (IES) and related sources; and 3) have the
ability to teach courses on digital learning to undergraduates and graduate
students in the SOE.



Responsibilities: Conducting and maintaining a productive program of
research, seeking extramural support for research and graduate students,
teaching education courses in the SOE, and serving on school and university
committees.
