Interviews for this role will be held on 20 October 2017

Due to continuing expansion in the use of educational technologies to enhance the student experience, Glasgow Caledonian University is looking to appoint three talented and motivated individuals to support the ongoing development and delivery of blended and online programmes across the University, with a particular emphasis on assessment and feedback.  They will be based in the Academic Development Team within the Department of Academic Quality and Development. The Academic Development Team supports professional development for innovative learning and teaching across the University, in collaboration with colleagues in the Schools, the Library and Professional Services.

The main purpose of the roles is to advise and support academic staff across the University in the implementation of learning technologies in relation to online submission, marking and feedback. This one year project will support the University's strategic objectives for the enhancement of the student experience in terms of digital assessment and feedback. The post holders will report to the Head of Academic Development and be primarily School-focused.  Their activities will be coordinated centrally by a cross-University project group to ensure the development needs of each academic School are met in this area, complementing the responsibilities of the School-based Learning Technologists.

The successful candidates will work collaboratively with academic staff across the University to advise and support them in the use of online submission, marking and feedback methods as well as the development of digital resources to support staff using a variety of media.  They will be educated to degree level in a relevant subject area, and will have comprehensive experience of working with others to design effective learning and teaching approaches using digital technologies. They will be expected to promote and encourage the effective use of appropriate technologies by the academic community, and design and deliver development opportunities for academic staff around the application and use of the virtual learning environment (VLE) Blackboard, and associated learning technologies including Grade Centre, Turnitin and Grademark, to enhance student learning.
