Our vision is to be a leading public university of technology recognised for our global impact. We are a dynamic and innovative university, ranked by the Times Higher Education as Australia’s top young university, and located centrally in one of the world’s most liveable cities. With a culturally diverse campus life and extensive international exchange and research programs, UTS prepares graduates for the workplaces of today and tomorrow.   

We are seeking a proactive, customer-focussed Educational Media Producer to provide guidance, support and advice to teaching staff in the production of multimedia resources for student learning experiences, and to support the design and build of their online learning environments.

About the Role

UTS aims to engage students in a seamless blend of online and face-to-face learning experiences that realise the potential of integrating the creative use of new technologies with face-to-face learning in new campus spaces and with learning in the workplace and community.

As part of a team in the UTS LX.lab you will manage all aspects of small-scale video productions for learning and teaching and collaborate effectively with academics to design videos, understanding and interpreting their learning and teaching needs. You will produce a range of multimedia resources including welcome videos, concept videos, flipped lectures and screen recordings, both for learning and teaching projects and to support academics’ professional learning.

You will play a large role in building our academics’ media literacy by providing practical guidance on scoping, filming and editing their own videos for use in learning and teaching via training sessions and 1-1 support.

At times you will also support academics in the building and maintenance of their online learning environments, supporting a diverse range of technologies that encourage online student interaction and participation.

About You

As this is a frontline support role, your strong client focus and ability to build and maintain client relationships will be key to your success. You will be a strong advocate for the use of multi-media in learning and teaching and comfortable interacting with learning management systems, preferably Canvas.

You will also have:

  • Strong technical skills across all aspects of the video and related media production process
  • Knowledge of educational multimedia best practice and accessibility requirements relating to multimedia
  • Experience working with academics and learning technologies in an educational environment
  • Experience in leading small scale end to end video productions, from pre-production to screen
  • Experience using SLR and DSLR cameras, lighting and sound equipment to produce videos
  • Significant experience with professional video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere.
