Designing an inclusive toolkit to empower Early Career Academics in their educational practice

Project Details

Academic description

Our interdisciplinary project is a response to this call to empower ECAs in a particular area of their educational practice: supporting students with the development of their writing – a key skill that learners need to master at university – and do so in the context of Generative AI. Through a series of semi-structured interviews with ECAs from a range of UK universities, we will establish their perspectives on such support and use this data to generate a resource that we will then refine through focus group discussions. The anticipated product will be a generalisable and transferable toolkit that enables ECAs to better understand how to support their students in academic writing and AI integrity. We also anticipate that the research will generate important conversations around the role of ECAs in supporting student learning while protecting ECAs from overwork and ensuring their wellbeing.
