The Center for Research on Instructional Change in Postsecondary Education (CRICPE) at Western Michigan University (WMU) is seeking two postdoctoral research associates to support the project implementation and research the impact of institutional transformation funded by a $3.2M grant from the US Department of Education. Broncos FIRST is built around an innovative model to promote and institutionalize emergent change in higher education, particularly around student success.
The postdocs will join CRICPE, a WMU research center that conducts and
supports interdisciplinary research focused on promoting transformative
change in postsecondary education (see http://wmich.edu/changeresearch).
Supervised by CRICPE Co-Directors, Dr. Charles Henderson and Dr. Andrea
Beach, the two postdocs will engage in mixed-methods research on
important processes and outcomes of the project. These include the work
of learning communities; intra-organizational alignment of student
support structures; and institutional culture/climate related to student
success. The post docs will also consult with and serve as resources
for professional learning communities of faculty, staff, and
undergraduate students as these heterogeneous groups engage in action
research projects. Responsibilities will include research planning,
development, data collection and analysis, and development of
manuscripts and presentations related to the project.
