Position Summary:

This instructional technologist position will provide support to faculty and staff working on technology-based outreach initiatives at the UW-Madison School of Nursing. The School of Nursing's outreach learning portal, aimed at courses for the professional healthcare workforce (rather than enrolled UW students) is built on a customized Totara LMS (Moodle-based) and uses a customized e-commerce system. Currently, we are hiring for 20 hours per week.

Four courses/e-resources (eSchoolCare, SHARP, Aging & Intellectual Disability and Geri-Res) are currently hosted on the LMS. Faculty and staff are responsible for primary management of their courses, but this position is responsible for technical management of those courses and the LMS and eCommerce frameworks. Sample duties include problem solving technology issues, editing HTML, loading content into the LMS, helping design learning activities from the technologist perspective, integrating complex tables and graphics to courses, managing the user database and managing e-commerce transactions.

This position will also provide some administrative support functions to Geri-Res and eSchoolcare, such as managing expert reviews and content edits.

Additional Information:

The School of Nursing is a world class work environment on the exciting University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Erected in 2014, Signe Skott Cooper Hall features high tech learning and work environments, sit-to-stand desks, a variety of collaborative and private workspaces, and amenities such as a cafe, rooftop garden, and fireplace. Get to know your colleagues by joining monthly social gatherings and even low cost yoga classes in the building every semester.

Three primary programs supported by the LMS are Geri-Res and eSchoolCare and SHARP:

Geri-Res is an online nurse residency curriculum for practicing nurses in nursing homes, assisted living and home health. The suite of courses is designed to be implemented by long term care providers as part of a comprehensive residency program in their organizations. Geri-Res is currently available nationally to long term care providers.

eSchoolCare is a web-based mobile resource that provides school nurses with resources on student chronic health conditions. Content is focused on supporting school-based care of students with chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, and gastrointestinal and mental health disorders. There is immediate, step-by-step guidance for student care: checklists, photos, videos, and links to community resources. eSchoolCare, currently in use throughout Wisconsin and West Virginia, was developed with federal funding and has shown significant improvements in nurse self-ratings of knowledge and and confidence in caring for children with chronic conditions and consistency in applying School Nursing Scope and Standards.

Staying Healthy-Asthma Responsible & Prepared, also known as SHARP, is an academic asthma health education and counseling self-management program delivered in schools during instructional time by trained certified elementary school teachers.
