The Digital Media and Learning (DML) Research Hub, in partnership with UCI’s School of Education, invites advanced graduate students and early career scholars conducting research in the field of digital media and learning to submit applications for the Digital Media and Learning (DML) Data Training Award. The award recipients will conduct secondary analysis of longitudinal data collected by the Connecting Youth Project.
The goal of the award is to engage and support scholars to conduct data analysis on a unique and comprehensive longitudinal dataset collected by the Connecting Youth project, led by UCI’s Dean of Education, Richard Arum. Participants will be invited to analyze the data set and develop a personal project such as a publication, dissertation, book chapter, or other relevant outcome. Participants will have access to staff support in order to access and analyze the data set. A detailed description of the data participants will have access to is provided below.
The DML Research Hub will provide funding for up to five advanced graduate students and early career scholars to travel to two institutes at UC Irvine in Irvine, California — one training day on June 1, 2017*, and one presentation day in spring 2018 (economy round-trip, coach airfare, ground transportation) — as well as meals, and accommodation. A data analysis and writing stipend of $500 will be provided upon attending the 2017 summer institute, and $500 upon attendance at the final presentation symposium and submission of a paper draft ($1000 total per fellow).
Expectations for participation include:
- Conducting analysis on the data set and developing a project
- Reading and providing feedback on each other’s projects
- Attending both workshops and presenting projects at the second workshop
