Salary (H5): £56,297 - £61,301 per annum (incl. of London Allowance)

Full-time, permanent 

An experienced learning technologist is sought to lead the development and implementation of digital technologies for the new Brunel Medical School (BMS), which will welcome its first cohort of international undergraduate medical students in September 2021

The new medical programme will have a number of distinctive features, including team based learning (TBL), early exposure to patients in primary and community care settings and a programmatic approach to assessments so as to provide rich feedback to promote student learning. An important feature of the programme is the large number of clinical staff who will contribute to both campus and placement-based learning.

A range of digital technologies will be used to enhance the student experience, incorporating curriculum mapping, a digital portfolio, digital assessments and a LAMs system to support in-class TBL activities. There are also plans for use of augmented and virtual reality. The Brunel VLE is Blackboard Learn. 
 
In response to the Covid pandemic, digital support for home-based learning and teaching (both synchronous and asynchronous) is an area of increasing importance, as are technologies that have the potential to simulate the clinical environment when students are not able to access it.

In line with the quality assurance requirements of the UK General Medical Council for new undergraduate medical programmes, digitally captured data relating to the curriculum, timetabled student activity, and other student data (e.g. admissions, feedback, performance and concerns) will need to be made available for regular monitoring.  

The postholder will be joining a dynamic multidisciplinary team of academic, clinical and professional staff who are engaged in the development of high-quality digital curriculum content. Key priorities will be to ensure that that the planned digital systems are optimally integrated, that staff receive the necessary training, and that systems are in place to monitor and report student feedback, attendance, performance and concerns.  

For this role, experience of University and/or medical education is recommended.
