Dartmouth is hiring for a newly created position in our Learning Design & Technology team!
We’re hiring for a newly created Educational Technologist position. This could be you if. . .
You are an inspired edtech professional who wants to bring the best learning technologies to higher education by working with faculty, learning designers, vendor-innovators, and IT experts. You understand the teaching and learning environment and enjoy working at all levels of technology support: research, administration, testing, and implementation.
You are ready to live and work in the blissful, outdoorsy, largely traffic-free, Amazon Prime-loving, farm-to-table, 30 minutes in any direction and you're out in the country, arts-embracing, mini-tropolis slice of heaven just 2.5 hours from Boston we call Hanover, New Hampshire.
But enough about you, how about us?
We are the Learning Design and Technology (LD&T) team at Dartmouth – passionate Learning Designers, Learning Analytics Specialists and now an Educational Technologist to spark and infuse high-impact teaching and learning at Dartmouth. We’re highly collaborative, networked, pensive, sometimes techie, and not afraid to try new things (even when they don’t work out).
What would an Educational Technologist do (you ask)? Keep our edtech fresh, secure, sassy, and easy to use.
* Pounce on any problems with our LMS (Canvas) and involving others in IT as needed. * Wrangle LMS user support with our tier-one partner (Canvas) and loop in the learning design team when a technology ask blossoms into a learning design question. * Kick the tires (real good) for any potential LMS tools and LMS production releases. * Make plans (on napkins, whiteboards, and project planning docs) for new integrations or technology proof of concepts and pilots. * Be the lead system administrator/analyst for our LTI apps and much of our technology stack (TechSmith, Wordpress, Campus Pack, and other technologies). * Keep Dartmouth on the cutting-edge of learning technology.
* Be curious, research new educational technologies, and pitch us your ideas for pilots. * Write, record, or find the best explainer guides and contribute to a knowledge base. * Run workshops and consult with faculty to use technology in their teaching. * Connect and collaborate with our partners
You’ll be seeing and working a lot with the Learning Designers. Be the bridge - because Edtech and Classroom Tech shouldn’t be stranded on separate islands. We have an awesome Class Tech group and we collab a lot. Be the voice - consult with various committees/campus systems projects with an edtech component.
Under the direction of the Asst. Dir for Educational Technologies, the Educational Technologist will research, implement and administer established and new technology infrastructure for teaching and learning. The focus of this position is on the technical functions of Educational Technologies, while also advancing pedagogically sound best practices.

Ed.: I created a version of this document in another Group I'm part of, but wanted to make it available to my fellow Northeasterners who may not be in the Instructional Designers Group. So below is a copy. In response to a long-standing user need in the Canvas Community, I wrote a code snippet to produce a plain-vanilla HTML version of a Canvas…
