Research Assistant Social And Emotional Learning Jobs Vacancy in Easel Lab Harvard Graduate School Education Cambridge Jobs Details:
Position/Role: Research Assistant, 14-35 hours per week, June 2019-February 2020
Overview: The Ecological Approaches to Social Emotional Learning Lab (EASEL Lab), led by Dr. Stephanie Jones of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, explores the effects of high-quality social-emotional interventions on the development and achievement of children, youth, teachers, parents, and communities. Our projects aim to advance the field of social and emotional learning through research, practice, and policy. This includes traditional field experiments and evaluation research; applied research; the development and dissemination of curricula, strategies, and professional development; and authorship of publications for a range of audiences and platforms. The EASEL Lab also effects change through translational activities that work towards solidifying the connections between the growing body of evidence supporting high-quality social and emotional learning and educational practice and policy more generally. Over the past five years, the EASEL Lab has designed a series of projects and collaborations that build upon and extend this research in a number of ways.
Project Description: In 2017, the EASEL Lab published Navigating SEL from the Inside Out, a resource and practical guide for educators that looks inside and across 25 leading SEL programs to identify key features and attributes of SEL programming for elementary-age children. Our team is beginning a new phase of this project designed to update and expand the content, which will include additional elementary programs as well as preschool, middle, and high school programs. The project involves conducting a rigorous content analysis of SEL programs to identify and summarize the skills targeted, instructional methods used, and programmatic features included within each program. The information gathered from the content analysis will be used to (1) provide schools and out-of-school-time organizations with the resources to make informed choices about which programs are most adaptable, doable, and feasible within their particular settings, and (2) identify common strategies of effective SEL practice across programs.
Potential activities for this project include:
- Coding SEL and non-cognitive curricula.
- Collect supporting data on program features, structure, evidence, etc.
- Support the development and writing of program profiles, supporting information, and complementary tools.
- Experience with qualitative coding or working with data preferred
