Call for Research Proposals: EdTech responses to Covid-19

EdTech Hub is excited to launch a call for proposals to fund a series of small research projects (3-6 months) related to Covid-19 response and recovery using educational technology (EdTech). The selected research projects will investigate the practical application of EdTech, generate primary research, and develop recommendations which aim to be useful during Covid-19 response, recovery, and beyond.

We see this as a great opportunity to further expand available evidence on how EdTech can be used to support continuation of education throughout the Covid-19 crisis, and the overall EdTech evidence base generally. We’re also particularly excited to work with and learn from researchers working on education projects in Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Tanzania.

Research projects:

  • can receive between 10,000 GBP and 25,000 GBP in funding
  • must be empirically-based and related to the role of EdTech in the immediate Covid-19 response and/or recovery
  • must focus on and be undertaken in one of these countries: Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Tanzania
  • must relate to one or more of the EdTech Hub’s three main thematic research areas (Systems, Teachers, Learners)

If your research aligns with our specifications, we would love to hear from you. Please visit our Call for Research Proposals: EdTech responses to Covid-19 webpage for further information, including full eligibility criteria and how to apply.

If you are aware of any researchers or research projects that could be interested in applying, please share the above link with your networks or forward details to us at hello@edtechhub.org (Subject: C19 RESEARCH CALL).
