Courses: Informatics Research Review & Informatics Research Proposal
Time in Year: These courses run throughout Sem 1 and Sem 2, and are compulsory for all MSc students.
Number of Posts: approx 20 (depending on student numbers and choices)
The IRR and IRP tutorials will run with 8 sessions in Sem 1
and 8 sessions in Sem 2. EComputer Networkingach session will run for
approximately 90 minutes so tutors
will be paid for three hours per
session plus some allowance for providing feedback to students on
their work. For each of the sessions a slideset will be available
to structure the session and there will be a short, coordination
meeting at the start of each week to discuss the sessions for the
week. The planning for the IRR sessions is already quite detailed; an IRR outline is available here
, with a sequence of the full IRR and IRP delivery available here
. You will be working in small
groups with the goal of generating a satisfactory IRR in Sem
1 and a satisfactory IRP in Sem 2.
The sessions are
compulsory for all MSc students, meaning you will be expected to check
attendance and report absence to the ITO. There will be an
initial (paid) training session to cover the content and mode of
teaching for the IRR and IRP sessions. There will be a final
assessment for each IRR via a new structured assessment form and
this will be paid for independently of the other sessions.
The 2010/11 IRR and IRP course and tutorials will be supported with a wiki: https://www.wiki.ed.ac.uk/display/irrirpwiki/
Tutoring posts are paid at grade UE06,
currently upwards of £12.50/hr.
Total Hours: 48 hours for the contact sessions. Claimed hours for
providing feedback. 1 hour per graded final submission.
