The post

This new post has been created following a revision of the institutional
Learning Technology Strategy (LTS). The LTS focuses particularly on
collaborative learning technologies: the university currently uses Lotus Domino

bespoke learning environments designed to specific academic/pedagogical
requirements. Video-conferencing is also used.

This post will be within the Learning Technology Development Group in the
Higher Education Development Centre within ISS. The work of the group involves
advising and supporting academic staff in the implementation of
technologically-oriented teaching, learning and assessment. An important
element of this work is developmental in order to move the work of the Group,
and of the University, forward in this area. This post will focus on the
administration and monitoring of the central server that supports this service
together with staff and student training in this area. After some training the
person will also be encouraged to take on some development work.

The person appointed will be a graduate with an interest and experience in the
support of learning technologies. The person will have an understanding of
learning and teaching in higher education and the interpersonal skills required
