CENTER FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING
SENIOR ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR FOR LEARNING SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY
The office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE) is responsible for providing academic programs and services to undergraduate students in support of the academic mission of the University. The VPUE, as an organization, encompasses a central administrative office and four major program areas: the Center for Teaching and Learning, Undergraduate Advising and Research, Stanford Introductory Studies, and the Bing Overseas Studies Program.
We have an exciting new position as Senior Associate Director for Learning Sciences and Technology at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). This person is an active campus advocate for research-based, pedagogically-informed decisions about teaching and learning technologies; leads a CTL team in the successful adoption and adaptation of academic technology tools in Stanford classrooms; provides instructional design consultation for a broad range of faculty, courses, and programs; and engages a range of ongoing faculty scholarly efforts in this area. The Senior Associate Director also closely collaborates with campus partners in offices responsible for academic computing and online learning, and partners with CTL colleagues in the Learning@Stanford  initiative and other academic support programs. In coordination with VPUE’s Director of Communications and Strategic Initiatives—and with the overarching objective of enhanced teaching and learning through technology—this person drives strategic planning for CTL’s digital media outreach strategy.
