Do you have an interest in digital technologies, and their use in an educational setting?

Are you passionate about helping to deliver an exceptional student experience?

You will work as part of a cross faculty team within the Student Education Service covering both the Faculties of Engineering and Physical Sciences and Environment. You will collaborate with academic staff in each of the Schools - Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical and Process Engineering, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Computing, Food Sciences, Earth and Environment, Geography and the Institute for Transport Studies. Using your knowledge and experience of blended and technology enhanced learning practices and processes, you will support the operational use of the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and learning technologies, helping the faculties' Digital Education Group and Faculties' Digital Education Academic Leads to meet the objectives set out in our blended learning strategy.

You will work collaboratively with team members within the Faculty, with other Schools and Faculties and Central Services, in order to share good practice and encourage knowledge exchange between colleagues to facilitate continuous improvement. You will also assist with the communication and dissemination of new events, initiatives and tools related to technology enhanced learning, as they may affect learning and teaching across the Faculty.

With a demonstrable ability to identify and suggest improvements to the service provided, you will have experience of contributing to enhancements to learning and teaching processes through the provision of support to academic colleagues, in particular involving the use of computer-based systems and technologies.

You will be well organised and adaptable with a flexible approach to work, able to plan and prioritise your workload and balance tasks to meet competing deadlines. You'll also be an excellent communicator, with a high level of attention to detail.
