Georgia Tech is looking for a dynamic professional who's passionate about designing engaging learning experiences, and fascinated with the role technology can play in changing the game. Our shared mission is to enhance teaching and learning, and we're looking for someone who's passionate about designing engaging learning experiences as well as the role technology can play in changing the game.

A successful candidate will also be a superb communicator, able to converse fluently with subject matter experts in diverse disciplines.

Responsibilities will include:

• Design, conduct, evaluate, and improve professional development workshops and cohort programs for faculty interested in improving learning and designing and teaching effective technology-enhanced and hybrid/blended courses.

• Explore, research, evaluate, and advise on new and emerging technologies based on potential to improve and/or evaluate student learning.
• Create and/or adapt professional development materials and resources (e.g. self-paced online modules) to provide hybrid and online professional development resources for faculty.
• Expand the web presence of CETL and Ed Tech, including the main web site, blogging and social media.
• Provide training workshops and end-user support to faculty for supported technologies.
• Conduct and contribute to research studies evaluating the use of education technologies or other educational innovations and their impact on student learning outcomes.
