Imperial College London’s new Learning and Teaching Strategy, launched in June 2017, sets out an ambitious programme of work aimed at establishing Imperial as a global leader in innovative, evidence-based education. Implementation of the Strategy will be underpinned by significant new investment in education which will support new, innovative, evidence-based teaching and learning methods across the College. The Faculties of Engineering and Natural Sciences plan to undertake a process of pedagogical transformation of their modules which are delivered on-campus in line with a faculty wide curriculum review.
These roles form a key part of the Faculty EdTech teams’ ambition to become leading Centres of Excellence in delivering digitally enhanced, online and blended learning programmes. This ambition includes supporting the development and innovation in digital educational technologies and pedagogies for online teaching and extension activities such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
Working within either the Faculty of Engineering or the Faculty of Natural Sciences, you will have responsibility for establishing and implementing the metrics across the faculty’s digital content to capture reporting of various criteria. This will include working with a variety of college wide stakeholders to establish data collection methodologies and strategies. You will be responsible for carrying out this work in conjunction with the team of Learning Technologists, Teaching Fellows, Academic Staff and students in the Faculty.
You will have the opportunity to collaborate with ICT and other stakeholders to build and enhance analytics capability across different e-learning systems whilst overseeing a roadmap of faculty requirements and participating in projects to deliver these.
You will also engage with faculty stakeholders by formulating and delivering Insight briefings and workshops to demonstrate progress against the pedagogic transformation metrics and supporting staff on how to use insights gained from the metrics to improve the student experience.
You should have a strong educational background (degree level), or equivalent professional experience in a relevant discipline. You should have proven experience as a business insight lead and an understanding of the benefits that learning analytics can bring to staff and students.
Experience of processing, analysing, and interpreting large and complex data sets using appropriate software or programming languages such as R or SQL, for communication to specialist and non-specialist audiences, along with experience of analysing qualitative information to support quantitative evidence for the development of effective action plans and interventions is essential.
You should have experience of drawing insight from data, using data visualisation and telling a story to support strategic decision making and outstanding leadership and organisational skills. Excellent interpersonal and presentation skills and outstanding skills in the use of different forms of media technology are essential.
This is a fixed term appointment for a period of 42 months.
