Educational researcher

As an educational researcher, you are at the forefront of innovative research into ways of improving the educational experience. If you are interested in working with people in order to find out about student learning styles, or motivation for learning; or if you are keen to develop new computer technologies to train and assist students, then this may be the job for you. Your duties would include designing research projects, arranging the participants and carrying out the study, and analysing and disseminating the results. Research topics undertaken are highly variable, so if you have an interest in education and have a creative and inquisitive mind, then consider becoming an educational researcher.
