The team will provide capacity for UCLA to participate in complex eLearning projects in collaboration with institutions across the UC system, other universities, and relevant professional organizations.

The Director oversees program administration and assessment for the unit; teaches courses and facilitates implementation of large-scale instructional design and digital media projects; represents the TLC on UCLA, UC, and national committees and projects; and initiates programmatic growth and scholarship in areas of importance to the TLC's mission and UCLA's strategic priorities.
