Los Angeles, Los Angeles County
Jul 31, 2014
UCLA’s Center for Digital Humanities is looking for a dynamic problem solver to help us transform our instructional technology program. The Instructional Technology Coordinator (ITC) engages directly with instructors from across the Humanities division, especially foreign languages and the digital humanities, to identify needs; critically examines existing services, to identify gaps and potential efficiencies; and ultimately leads necessary changes, to ensure our instructors access to the best possible services and support. As the leader of a seven-person front-line customer support team, the ITC also ensures that our staff are highly trained, professional and constantly engaged with new challenges that push their horizons and abilities. Finally, together with other members of our staff, the ITC solicits, plans, and participates in innovative, faculty-driven digital projects supported by CDH. Our ideal candidate will be a dynamic presenter, trainer, and all-around “people person,” with a high technical aptitude; a willingness to learn new things; higher education work experience; and some project-management and supervisory experience. We’re especially interested in candidates with LMS experience (especially Moodle), teaching experience (preferably at the university level), and experience with digital humanities tools (e.g., GIS, 3D modeling, text mining, TEI). Although a PhD is preferred, we’re open to otherwise-highly qualified candidates with an MA.
