About the Role
We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic professional with a passion for learning technology to our Blended Learning Team, initially on a 1-year, fixed term contract. The ideal candidate will be an excellent communicator who is able to provide expert advice and guidance to academic colleagues and business support staff to develop their understanding and creative use of technology to enhance teaching, learning and assessment across our College and University provisions. Experience of working within the education sector is essential.
The enhancement of learning technology is already a strategic focus of Hartpury University and Hartpury College through our Digital Strategy and following the unprecedented impact of Covid-19 the Blended Learning Team has a key role to play in supporting the continued delivery of outstanding teaching, learning and assessment for all students. The 2020/21 academic year will see Hartpury adopt a mixed-delivery model for both the College and University. This blended learning approach will combine traditional face-to-face teaching (in line with Government guidelines) with access to online sessions and distance learning content and resources.
