Do you want to be a unicorn? If so, I might be able to help.

We’re hiring at VCU ALT Lab. Specifically, we are looking for a digital engagement specialist and a couple of learning technologists. I’ve linked to the job descriptions, but, basically, I’d say we’re looking for interesting people who are interested in helping faculty members create awesome learning experiences.  That’s all. The ad copy for the jobs includes the following text:

The Academic Learning Transformation Laboratory (ALT Lab) is an intensely aspirational unit within the Office of the Vice Provost for Learning Innovation and Student Success at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). ALT Lab models and inspires connected learning for a networked world through faculty development, student engagement, communities of practice, and technology enhanced active learning. We cultivate distinctive experiences of deeper learning fostered by high engagement for student success. As Campus Technology put it recently, we are attempting nothing short of “Reinventing Teaching and Learning Centers for the 21st Century.”

Want a piece of that?

ALT Lab is poised to take a leadership role as VCU begins a massive digital engagement journey, as codified in our Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), and we are looking for a new member of the ALT Lab leadership team to help us lead those efforts. We welcome individuals with diverse experiences and backgrounds who will contribute to an already diverse community of faculty, staff, and students.

I can’t promise puppies and unicorns, but I can promise opportunity. We write on walls often. We hang out in cemeteries with students. We play video games with students. We do faculty development in the open and as a team. And we occasionally make Tom Woodward do goofy things.
