Academic position for instructional technologist

If I weren't at the end of my career, and staring down retirement this would be the position in academia that I would absolutely want to have. This is a great department that is doing incredible work to change education for the better: Come Work at USU!

The Instructional Technology Department at Utah State University (my academic home and the home of the Center for Open and Sustainable Learning) has a faculty opening. We’re not looking for expertise in a specific area of instructional technology - just a super smart, hard working, great-to-get-along-with colleague to help move the field forward.

The job description is online, and the first steps of the application process are all electronic. Personally, I’m excited by the follow excerpt from the description:

Applicants must be able to teach courses in one or more of the following general areas:

1. learning sciences,
2. instructional design,
3. research methods,
4. e-learning/distance education,
5. open education,
6. multimedia design and development,
7. performance improvement and training,
8. learning theory,
9. school library media,
10. assessment/evaluation.

You can apply for the position here: Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor - Instructional Technology
