Supported and co-funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND Programme, the University of Deusto (Bilbao, Spain) provides a three-years positions that aims at attracting qualified international Early Stage Researchers for high quality PhD training. The thesis proposal “Learning Analytics for Computational Thinking assessment”  aims to apply Learning Analytics techniques for Computational Thinking assessment, a topic which is challenging and plausible at the same time. Challenging because most computer-related problems have more than a single solution and novice programmers tend to address problems in imaginative -and often overcomplicated- ways. Plausible because the solutions that need to be analysed are defined in formal languages and their possibilities are often bounded.

Deadline for applications: 7 March 2017. Gross amount of €31260 per researcher per year.
