Are you thinking about spending one or two years as a postdoc in a very active and stimulating research environment?
Prof. Davinia Hernández-Leo, head of the TIDE Research Group at the Department of Information and Communications Technologies, based in Barcelona, Spain, offers support to eligible researchers to apply to the Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions for proposals in the area of Learning Technologies.
TIDE research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction, network and computer applications, and learning sciences. In particular, it is framed in the area of Learning Technologies, an intrinsically interdisciplinary field comprising research topics that concern from learning systems to social technologies, and from learning analytics to hybrid human-AI interventions. Our mission is to further the connection of education and technology. We aim to advance knowledge on how technological solutions can improve educational practice and develop tools that implement these solutions. Check our website: https://www.upf.edu/web/tide
