An opportunity is available for a part-time, fixed-term Research Assistant/Research Associate to join the Raspberry Pi Computing Education Research Centre to work on the research project "Teachers' motivation and beliefs relating to culturally responsive computing in schools in England."
Culturally responsive computing pedagogy and teaching aims to improve the experience and outcomes of computing in school of those from groups who are typically underrepresented in computing qualifications and careers, such as females and those from minority ethnic groups and low-income backgrounds. Teachers are crucial in this endeavour and this research project will focus on the ways in which teachers implement culturally responsive computing teaching and learning, and reflect on their beliefs and motivation.

The Centre is a joint initiative between the University and the Raspberry Pi Foundation and offers an exciting opportunity to combine expertise from across both institutions to deliver a step-change in computing education. The Centre seeks to achieve long-term impact by conducting original research as well as working with its partners to turn new research results into practice.
The funds for this position are available for 12 months in the first instance. Some travel within 50 miles of the Cambridge area will be required.
