Application deadline: 01/11/2019

The Playful Journey Lab within MIT Open Learning focuses on developing playful ways to support future-ready skills through innovative assessment and learning designs. Our approach to assessment is student-centered, authentic, and performance-based, empowering learners to take ownership of their own learning pathways and supporting teachers to build capacity in assessment design. Members of our interdisciplinary team collaborate on designing, implementing, and researching assessment tools in order to create tools for lifelong learning experiences, and we also spend time as a community wrestling with fuzzy and big problems in education and exploring new ideas for the future of assessment and learning.
The Learning Scientist will play a major role in supporting the lab’s design-based research projects, from the collaboration with the Woodrow Wilson Graduate School of Teaching and Learning to the MIT Learning Engineering Initiative. They will contribute deeply on certain projects, leading small- and large-scale implementations in classrooms, organizing play-testing for rapid iterations, collecting and analyzing data, and guiding team members using the science of learning principles and research methods. The Learning Scientist will also contribute more broadly on a larger set of projects, ensuring our work is building upon the body of the learning sciences literature. The Learning Scientist should be someone who is excited to collaborate with lab members, helping to build capacity among designers, assessment scientists, and data scientists to deepen the lab’s understanding of learning science as a whole.
