Postdoctoral Fellow in Hybrid & Digital Pedagogy, Bucknell University
Review of applications will begin 5/25/15
Bucknell University is awarding a postdoctoral fellowship to a scholar who is engaged with emerging trends in digital pedagogy and hybrid learning in his/her work. Area(s) of disciplinary specialization is/are open, but we seek candidates with research interests or experience working specifically in blended learning environments in undergraduate classrooms. Appointment will be for three years, effective on or after July 1, 2015.
As a member of the professional staff of Instructional Technology (ITEC) at Bucknell, this fellow will collaborate with faculty and administrators to explore possibilities for hybrid-learning at our residential liberal arts university. Drawing on the recommendations of Bucknell’s recent presidential task force report on Integrating Open Education Resources and Residential Learning, the fellow will help Bucknell outline a strategy for how to incorporate digital and hybrid pedagogical practices that enhance student engagement and learning while maintaining the benefits of the residential liberal arts experience.
We seek a candidate who will embrace hard work, dedication, and laughter while working in a team-oriented group. In addition, he/she should be naturally curious, possess a willingness to embrace change, take intellectual risks, challenge assumptions, and relish tinkering with new technologies. The fellow is expected to contribute to Bucknell’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.
