Learning Designer position at Athabasca University

My pal, Rodger Graham, sent me this posting from Athabasca. Good spot for instructional designers.



The Learning Designer is a key member of the department, who works with various course teams in the design and development of distance education courses at Athabasca University. Together with a course team of academic and departmental colleagues and under general guidelines and the supervision of the Manager, Course Design, the Learning Designer supports the course development process. The incumbent consults with course professors, coordinators, faculty, staff and colleagues on appropriate methods for online teaching and learning and then works collaboratively with the course team to apply design ideas effectively. Successful integration of analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation activities using project management skills to contribute to sustaining and enhancing the quality of Athabasca University courses and course development processes are required. The successful candidate must have a masters degree, preferably in educational technology, instructional design or equivalent, with at least five years of experience. An equivalent combination of education and experience may be considered. All educational credentials must be recognized in Canada.
