The Centre for Research in Education and Educational Technology, at the Open University has an international reputation for the quality of its research. Providing research students with a supportive environment and excellent research facilities ensures a future supply of first class researchers. In conjunction with the highly prestigious Globe Theatre and with the Open University’s Department of English, CREET offers you a unique opportunity to study from October 2016 for a three-year full-time PhD in Playing Shakespeare.
Every year Globe Education’s flagship schools programme Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank creates a high quality production of a Shakespeare play specifically designed for young people. The project provides free training for around 200 teachers and in-school workshops for around 3,000 students, backing this up with a range of digital resources. The aim of the Playing Shakespeare Full-time Studentship will be to explore the impact of the programme upon secondary school students.
