Do you have experience editing video? Are you curious about how media can be used in social science research? Do you need an idea for a capstone project or an honors activity for next semester? If so, consider applying to work on the Early Investments Initiative with Dr. Gordon (Sociology & Institute of Government and Public Affairs) and the Social-Emotional Teaching Measurement Development project with Dr. Zinsser (Psychology). Together these projects aim to connect the research evidence with practice and policy surrounding early childhood education in the state of Illinois. We are using cutting edge panoramic video equipment to capture nearly a hundred hours of preschool classroom activities. We are seeking a computer savvy Honors College student to work as a Research Assistant helping us edit, merge, and code these videos.
Qualifications/Requirements: While prior experience with Adobe Premier Pro is preferred, we can provide training if you are no familiar with the Creative Cloud Suite. Students must be able to commit a minimum of 6 hours per week to the projects and two semester commitments are preferred.
Application: Interested students should complete the application on Dr. Zinsser’s website (setl.psch.uic.edu) or email the project manager Courtney Zulauf (email@example.com) directly.
