You report to the team leader of the Course Support Team.

For the department Mathematics and Computer Science, you will be the reliable key-user of the educational management system (e.g., Canvas), assessment tools (e.g. Ans, Sowiso), tools for interaction (e.g. Mentimeter, Feedback Fruits) and other educational tools.

The ability to carefully listen to our teachers and to integrate their input in the implementation of strategies and projects is a fundamental aspect to be successful in this position. For example, preparing info sessions with important subjects to our teachers, looking for articles/ methodologies that could help them with their challenges etc.

Can you collaborate with teachers by guiding them to shape an optimal blend of learning forms for effective learning for students in a high-quality engineering education?
Can you switch roles from advising educational strategies to supporting teachers with hands-on tasks?
Will you, together with others in our university, be keeping up with ICTE developments and giving that extra boost to the range of possibilities and solutions that the department Mathematics and Computer Science and the entire chain of teacher support officers can offer our teachers?
