Faculty interested in determining the future direction of academic technologies at Ohio University are encouraged to apply for OIT's new Executive Director for Instructional Technology & Research position. Applications are due by April 30, 2013.

According to Faculty Technology Advisory Group (FTAG) chair Greg Kessler, the job will best be served by someone with direct faculty experience. "This position is less about being a technologist and more about understanding and representing the faculty where technology is concerned," Kessler said.  

The position will report directly to the CIO and indirectly to the Executive Vice President & Provost, with extensive collaborations with academic deans and e-learning representatives. Duties will include direct management of instructional and research design/support staff, creation of a strategic plan for instructional and research technologies at the university, and overseeing support of institution-wide services like lecture capture, online course evaluations, and learning management systems like Blackboard.

Interested applicants should note that HR pay grades for IT-related positions follow a different naming convention than other job postings. All IT jobs are identified as "Classified & IT" regardless of whether they are salaried or hourly. The Executive Director for Instructional Technology & Research is a full time, salaried "Grade K" position. Salary ranges for this pay grade can be found in this PDF from University Human Resources.
