Context of the Job
IT Academic Technology Services (IT-ATS) helps University of Delaware educators implement innovative ideas in digital education through consultation, training, co-production support and seed funding for new ideas in residential and online education. We partner with UD leadership, faculty, staff, and graduate student instructors to explore new technologies and pedagogies, cultivate innovative pilot projects, and aid in the development of new online and hybrid programs.
Our functional areas include instructional design, learning management systems support, digital media support, and instructional television and conferencing support. We assist with in-class instruction, online learning, hybrid courses, and online curricula. We also provide specialized assistance, such as classroom recording, video conferencing facilities and software, student response systems, instructional project development, webcasting and video hosting, in-class technical instruction, learning management systems, learning space design, and numerous faculty development programs.
IT-ATS collaborates with other instructional support units on campus to form a Teaching Support Network through the Office of the Provost. In IT-ATS, we operate an innovative campus-based teaching and technology site in which we provide technology consultations, host events and training, and foster interdisciplinary connections. We have adaptable-use areas for faculty, teaching staff, and graduate teaching assistants.
Consultants on our Instructional Design team help faculty and TAs improve teaching and learning through the effective application of technology. They teach faculty about best practices and document evidence-based approaches, provide support for learning management systems, personal response systems, web technologies, and other instructional technologies (e.g., for presentations, collaboration, visualization, and feedback). Importantly, our IDs partner with instructors and academic program directors to co-produce high-quality online and hybrid courses, supporting many of our highly ranked online programs.
The Educational Technology Consultant contributes to our unit’s substantive and meaningful technology contributions to teaching and learning, ultimately raising the attractiveness of UD for new faculty and students.
Please note that this is a campus-based position that will allow the successful candidate to take advantage of the rich local resources available to UD employees.
