New position available: Learning Manager

Infor­ma­tion is the lifeblood of a uni­ver­sity, both in terms of teach­ing stu­dents and in learn­ing about its oper­a­tions. With infor­ma­tion sys­tems as sophis­ti­cated as the UW’s, that learn­ing process is multi-faceted and increas­ingly impor­tant. The University’s Office of the Infor­ma­tion Offi­cer for Stu­dent Life (IOSL) under­stands this and is look­ing for the right per­son to step into the role of Learn­ing Man­ager:

The Learn­ing Man­ager will help build and main­tain the learn­ing infra­struc­ture within Uni­ver­sity learn­ing sys­tems and IOSL web sites. This will enable the IOSL to deliver an ongo­ing and diverse cur­ricu­lum of classes as well as pro­vide a range of addi­tional learn­ing ser­vices that sup­port users as they develop the core skills required to use com­plex sys­tems more effec­tively and securely.

The IOSL believes the best way to invest in the secu­rity of infor­ma­tion sys­tems is to invest in the growth and learn­ing of the peo­ple who use them. At the UW, these infor­ma­tion sys­tems include the Stu­dent Data­base (SDB), the Enter­prise Data Ware­house (EDW), and Kuali (a pos­si­ble suc­ces­sor to SDB). Thou­sands of UW stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff rely on these sys­tems every quar­ter, so ensur­ing their effi­cient and proper use of the utmost importance.

The Learn­ing Man­ager will serve many func­tions in sup­port of the mis­sion of the Divi­sion of Stu­dent Life. Some of these are to:

  • Design, cre­ate and edit instruc­tional mate­ri­als and sup­port­ing documentation.
  • Plan, coor­di­nate and deliver instructor-led classes to clients on cam­pus and in other busi­ness units.
  • Man­age all elearn­ing usabil­ity test­ing programs.
  • Main­tain the learn­ing web site and related data­bases systems.

While the posi­tion has a strong tech­nol­ogy focus, other fac­tors are equally impor­tant. The IOSL views learn­ing as a process of active inquiry rather than pas­sive recep­tion; the Learn­ing Man­ager will use a vari­ety of learn­ing options and tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions in order to accom­mo­date a vari­ety of learn­ing styles and needs.

It’s an excit­ing oppor­tu­nity for the right per­son to pos­i­tively impact the learn­ing across one of the nation’s pre­mier edu­ca­tional and research insti­tu­tions. Are you that right per­son? We hope so!
