Looking for a full-time #PhD option in UK, act now for the Wild card!

Looking for a full-time #PhD option in UK, act now for the Wild card!

If you are in that phase in your life, where you think "I want something else... I would love to engage in a satisfying, cognitive experience where at the end I might get an Internationally acclaimed PhD ... then get cracking now!". If you have an interest in Open Educational Resources (OER), Learning Analytics and/or Technology Enhanced Learning (MOOC, mobile learning, online education), this is you potential golden card, as it is now officially a Wild card, as the last of the Leverhulme Doctoral Full-time scholarships is now up for grabs. And the key action is: get your idea out there, and defend it to one of the World leading learning analytics scholars out there: Bart Rienties. I know the man (enlightened visionair), I know The Open University (a truly wonderful and nurturing research environment situated in Milton Keynes), and I know some of the opportunities (enhanced OER thinking, learning analytics... the basis of new departments across the globe)... it will be worth your while!

The wild card? In fact the scholarships would have been taken by now, luckily, Bart Rienties felt that there is one more to be added, a specific, unique idea that would really make a difference in education, or show creative ideas, that would provide new educational evidence-based insights. So, although the formal deadline has been exceeded (see the formal description and information on the full-time scholarship here), there is one full-time scholarship remaining. Go for it immediately, the first one to make an impression will get it!

Any candidates that are considering to pursue a PhD in TEL/Open World Learning can directly contact Bart Rienties personally at bart.rienties@open.ac.uk to arrange an informal skype to discuss the feasibility of their ideas. More information on the scholarship can be found here:
