The Instructional Design, Development, and Evaluation (IDD&E) Department in the School of Education at Syracuse University is seeking a dynamic colleague to fill one full-time, Tenure-Track Assistant or Tenure-eligible Associate Professor faculty position. 

This position is part of a broader Syracuse University Cluster Hires Initiative. The Virtual and Immersive Interactions (VII) research cluster draws together a diverse group of scholars across education, the social sciences, humanities, the arts, and STEM, as well as the research and design of digital and experiential methodologies, technologies, and practices that enhance research and teaching. 

Aligned with this research cluster is the School of Education’s new Center for Experiential Pedagogy and Practice, engaging faculty and students in both basic and applied research and design initiatives, using multiple digital pedagogies to advance experiential teaching and learning. The faculty hired into this position will build upon our existing and emerging strengths in this cluster area, and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the School of Education and across the University.

Aligned with this commitment, we seek an individual with strong expertise and research interest in (1) instructional design and (2) topics related to design of instruction to support deep learning with the integration of immersive, interactive, and emerging technologies.

There will also be many unique opportunities to participate in the integration of instructional systems and technology across a collaborative and technologically sophisticated campus.
