The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the world's largest law schools. With an impressive history dating back to 1876, we employ over 900 staff and have over 14,000 students studying on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, along with an alumni network in excess of 100,000. We were the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and in 2012 we gained university title. In 2016, we opened our leading Business School, further enhancing our reputation as a full service legal, business and educational training specialist, operating from fourteen campuses throughout the UK, Berlin and Hong Kong.
The University is undergoing a significant curriculum transformational change project, termed the Future Academic Model. The Learning Technologist role will be an integral part of this cross-institutional transformation.
Reporting to the Director of Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching and Learning Analytics you will provide specialist expertise to all University of Law colleagues to develop and use digital learning across all learning modes. You will support the enhancement of the curriculum across all programmes and disciplines through digital technologies, including providing training and support for colleagues, evaluating the effectiveness of digital learning on the student and staff experience.
You will have the ability to draw upon the broader higher education sector’s use of digital technologies and support University of Law colleagues exploring and piloting new software/digital learning tools for specific programme delivery.
The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience of developing and advising on the production of high-quality, innovative, pedagogically sound, digital learning materials and activities for different modes of delivery within a Higher / Further Education context and will have gained experience of working on collaborative transformational curriculum projects adopting a student-centric methodology. You will possess a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of virtual learning environments, multimedia technologies, simulations, and augmented reality, with a successful record of designing and delivering training opportunities and materials to staff and students who have diverse experiences and skills.

All appointments will be made on merit.
