Graduate Students and Postdocs, would you like to gain experience in digital pedagogy, help promote pedagogically-sound use of educational technology at UChicago, and get ready to teach blended or fully-online courses? We are hiring Digital Pedagogy Fellows for 2018-19 academic year.
|Description:||Academic Technology Solutions (ATS) is seeking graduate students and postdocs to assist faculty, TAs, students, and staff in the transition to a new video management platform, and to promote a deeper use of Canvas and the pedagogically-sound use of other educational technology. This position is ideal for those who are preparing to teach blended courses or fully online courses, interested in incorporating a range of digital educational tools for traditional face-to-face classroom, or exploring the field of instructional design. Graduate students and postdocs from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
You will consult, guide, and support instructors in the pedagogically-sound use of technology for teaching and learning. Experience with digital educational tools is not required, but basic digital literacy and computer skills is a must, and candidates must show a willingness to learn new digital tools quickly and independently. You must also have teaching experience. Teaching consultation experience and knowledge of basic pedagogy (e.g. through workshops offered by Chicago Center for Teaching) is a plus.
Successful applicants will receive training in digital pedagogy and perform support duties under the guidance of full-time staff. It is expected that Fellows will be able to perform independently the duties described below and will serve as the digital pedagogy liaison for their divisions after they have completed their training satisfactorily.
