Royal Holloway University of London is at a pivotal moment in the development of our programme of education and currently setting out on an ambitious programme of work aimed at transforming our delivery of teaching, learning, and assessment to a flexible model of delivery.

Driving this transition will be a pedagogical shift into a more collaborative and social approach to teaching and learning that is inclusive, engaging, and underpinned by an extended ecosystem of learning technologies. 

The post holder will be a senior subject matter expert (SME) in all aspects of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and play a key role in the leading the provision of pedagogically-informed technical capabilities and procedures for adopting and embedding TEL to meet the requirements of the College’s transformative vision for teaching and learning. The TEL ecosystem comprises core technologies—such as the latest version of Moodle, Turnitin, Panopto, and MS Teams—in addition to multiple 3rd party apps, which this post will be maintaining and supporting.

The post holder will have the ability to provide 3rd line support specifically in Moodle including Moodle data structures, reporting using Moodle, integrations including Microsoft 365 systems administration for MS Teams, plugins, LTI functionality and user lifecycle management within the applications and RTL ecosystem.

The post holder will be a proactive team player with a creative, problem-solving mind-set and passion for technology enhanced learning. This senior role will involve working in close collaboration with staff in Schools and Support services on cross-college activities to support teaching, learning, and assessment.

This post is based in IT Services with the Research, Teaching and Learning Applications Team and will work alongside the Head of the RTL Team in the pedagogical and technological implementation of the College’s transformative vision.

This is a fixed term post until 31 July 2021.
