Help bring Stanford courses to the entire world, and become a driver of innovation in teaching and learning at Stanford! Stanford’s Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) is looking for a creative and intellectually intrepid professional to join the Digital Learning Design Team as an Associate Director of Instructional Design (AD ID).

AD IDs drive innovation and experimentation in digitally-facilitated pedagogy by

  • Guiding the development of online courses (both MOOC and non-MOOC offerings),
  • Providing consultations to faculty in all disciplines who are working on both fully online and blended courses, and
  • Working with teams within VPTL (such as video production, program management, engineering, etc.) to push the envelope in higher education.

You

You are an intellectually curious, creative thinker. You like learning and would enjoy working on courses in a range of topics (from medieval handwriting to quantum mechanics). You have reflected deeply on what makes learning stick, and on the mission of higher education. You have teaching experience, and have worked in the instructional sphere with faculty at a research university (probably as a graduate student / researcher or as a staff member who supports teaching and learning). You also have some experience using technology in teaching, whether through the use of forums in the classroom, by having created your own videos, or otherwise.

Us

As an AD ID, you will work most closely with:

Kenny (AD ID)

Kenny holds a PhD in English Literature (it’s a long story), has worked in prisons, Prague, and publishing, and on balance prefers working at a Californian university. His driving goal is to increase the outreach of knowledge generally and humanities learning in particular. Among his favorite projects are “Ten Premodern Poems by Women,” Authorial London, “Digging Deeper: The Form and Function of Manuscripts,” and “Reading after Trump,” a podcast on the intersection of politics and literature.

Alison (AD ID)

Alison received her PhD in Biology from MIT before she made the leap into biology education. She taught introductory biology lectures to MIT undergrads, led workshops with Haitian faculty members on the intersection of technology, pedagogy and language, developed an online course for faculty members in Pakistan, and helped to develop a software tool that simulates cell and molecular biology experiments. She’s happy to be back in sunny CA after spending more than 15 years on the east coast.

Grace (Director)

Grace has taught many topics to many audiences, from computer-literacy in Casablanca to homotopy theory at Harvard. Some of her favorite pedagogy innovations were making her English as a Second Language students practice the imperative tense by giving each other orders and having her math students compete in black-board erasing competitions. Despite her PhD in mathematics, she is surprisingly bad at multiplying large numbers.
