Digital Learning Developer - Library and Collections
Durham aspires to "offer a first-rate digital learning environment on a par with the best in the UK" (Education Strategy, 2017-27). The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to do so in ways that are flexible and resilient, meeting the needs of students and staff who are online well as those resident in Durham. Developing appropriate capacity in digital teaching and learning will be critical to the future value of a Durham degree.
To support this ambition, we are now seeking to appoint a digital learning developer within University Library and Collections to expand our support for the development of first-class digital learning. You will join colleagues working across the University to provide an exceptional learning environment. The role will require a combination pedagogic and technical development skills. Digital Learning Developers will work in partnership with academic subject experts to design and create digital artifacts (e.g. images, videos, simulations, interactive content, games), find and evaluate existing resources, develop VLE sites, and/or provide training and guidance to academic staff.
This role will be part of a larger team of digital learning developers across the Institution. The post being offered is the Grade 7 post within Library and Collections, each post has a standard set of responsibilities and requires a standard set of skills, but some posts in specific areas will require additional criteria to be met.
