Opportunity: Call for Student in Residence with the Digital and Physical Environments, UCL East

14 December 2020

The UCL East Programme team is looking to appoint a student from the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, Computer Science and/or UCLIC to join them as a Student in Residence for a 12-month period.

This opportunity has been developed as a result of a cross-disciplinary research project, begun in response to the global pandemic, that is exploring our understanding of our digital and physical environments, and the different ways in which we can build bridges between the two.

Central to this research is a reflection on public and private spaces; in particular, the project has been looking at how to create interactive social spaces physically and digitally, and what these could mean and how they might inform the educational - teaching and learning - experience.

The student will be embedded with the Sustainable Physical and Digital spaces for Education and Research (SPiDER) project, working with a focussed research group.

The appointed student will be invited to observe, comment and creatively reflect upon this research with a primary objective to explore ideas for creative initiatives, work and projects that can contribute to this debate with a focus on the new UCL East Campus. The student will, in the first instance, be observing the research groups by attending discussions and meetings, which are held fortnightly.

Prof Susan Collins, Slade School of Fine Art, and Prof Yvonne Rogers, Director of UCLIC, will be the lead academics at the start.
