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.http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif

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
