We are glad to announce that the GO-GN fellowships second call for applications is now open for submissions. The fellowship scheme supports GO-GN alumni and members in the last steps of their PhD. Benefits include a financial award of £1500. As for the first cohort fellows you will be listed on the GO-GN website and your fellowship work promoted and recognised in several ways, for example for the first cohort a webinar to introduce the research proposals was organised and their research results are expected to be presented at OER21.
Fellowships can be based on a specific piece of relevant research. You may also attend conferences for the promotion of the network using the financial award given. You will receive GO-GN support to organise regional seminars for the same purpose. Activities fellows may take up are varied and include undertaking a piece of targeted OER/OEP related research, an overview of OER activity in a region and the promotion of GO-GN including new GO-GN members recruitment. You can find all the information regarding the scheme in the application form for the second round of fellowships.
You may like to look at what our first 4 fellows are achieving by reading their projects abstracts and blogpost, some of their feedback includes:
“I think the fellowship will have a significant impact. It will give visibility to the enormous work that teachers have done, and relevance to their voice, seldom heard in the story of educational continuity during COVID19”
“Amazing engagement with the current rhetoric around pedagogy and student engagement in culturally charged issues. I’m finding many students appreciate the design and interactions they afford”
“It has been fascinating so far. A rollercoaster but good that I am not doing this on my own and the support and collaboration has been vital”
The deadline for your submission is before April 25, 2021. If shortlisted, you will be contacted for a short interview during April. Fellowships are expected to last from May until October 2021.
