Help our TU/e teachers design their education.
- Are you the trusted innovative educational developer with a well-founded vision who functions optimally in a matrix of actors?
- Are you a team player with a service-oriented attitude that will share insights, didactic knowledge, tools, and experiences throughout the organization?
- Would you like to provide teachers with high-quality ICT in Education (ICTE) support that is always up to date?
- Will you take our educational design to the next level?
Various preconditions have been created at the TU/e for innovations in education. Many new educational ICT systems and AV resources are also now making it possible to design education in an optimal mix of forms. Teachers are making increasing use of this.
Teacher support and Course Support Team (CST) are the first point of contact with teachers regarding educational tasks. You will work in a team that is composed of Teacher support officers and various support staff to support teachers with hands-on tasks as well as innovative developments. You will cooperate with program coordinators, the departmental manager of Education and Students Affairs and the chain of (departmental) teacher supporters. 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. With these tools, your job consists in supporting our teachers through the functionalities of TU/e toolbox, advising them about the best tool/ functionality based on their didactical plan and supporting them in setting up these tools in their courses, if practical support is needed.
As a teacher supporter, it is also expected that you participate in projects to work together with our teachers in their educational challenges. 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?
Do you tackle educational innovations on a project basis and only let go when a new success has been achieved?
Do you like pioneering and sharing experiences with the community?
