Postdoc at MIT

Online learning environments, be it online (e.g. MOOCs) or on campus (e.g. blended courses), offer tremendous opportunities for education research: large sample sizes ensure sensitive statistics, detailed clickstream data provides high resolution on student behavior and learning, and a matured platform (edX) allow for easy implementation of randomized experiments. The major research responsibility of the postdoc will be to design experiments, author experimental resources, then collect and analyze data from their online use to find out the type resource and student learning behavior that generates deep learning and expertise – particularly in physics problem solving.  Our long term goal is to understand which resources and what learning habits improve student learning of specific skills and overall expertise.  This postdoc will benefit from the RELATE group’s expertise in educational data mining, advanced psychometrics including multi-dimensional item response theory, and experience in designing online experiments.
