Paid Internship on EDI in UCD School of Physics

The core values of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in higher education are an important consideration in curriculum design. This project involves the analysis of surveys to inform the write up of research reports and the preparation of supporting materials for the incorporation of EDI awareness into physics and mathematics teaching and learning practices. 

This project is for one student to undertake in either a full time (4 weeks) or part time (10 weeks) basis between January – April 2021. This work will ​not take place on the UCD campus and allows for flexibility with a remote working arrangement.
