The digitalization of education challenges established teaching practices in higher education and fosters new requirements for the professional development of faculty. We invite research proposals concerning professional development of faculty in higher education in the digital age. Expressions of Interest that are related to one or more of the following research themes are welcome:
1. How does teaching and learning in the digital age affect current roles/identities of teachers, students and staff, and what are the implications for faculty development?
2. Which teaching competences do higher education faculty need to develop in the digital age?
3. How does teaching and learning in the digital age affect the relationship between teachers/students and students/students, and what are the implications for faculty development?
Although not comprehensive, these questions illustrate that faculty development programs in the digital age need to change more fundamentally than offering courses on teaching technologies. We hope to be working with you on providing some solutions to this challenge and encourage interested researchers to apply.
Candidates with an education science background including but not limited to a psychological or social science degree and a strong interest in technology-supported learning are welcome to apply.
The position will be linked to the RiBL research cluster that explores new technology-supported teaching and learning opportunities in business and management education, including the changing role of teachers and the future of higher education institutions in the digital age.

1. Your CV including a full list of your publications, research grants and projects

Please submit your EoI by sending it to MSCA2021@cbs.dk as one single PDF file attachment named ‘MSCA - Thomsen - Applicant’s initials’ by May 16th, 2021.
