To facilitate change in STEM education by integrating an interdisciplinary community of scholars, promoting, sustaining and evaluating existing reform efforts, sponsoring new programs, advocating for diversity and access, influencing relevant policy, fundraising and communicating with the public.

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

  • Promote and facilitate campus-wide educational transformation efforts.
    • These include, but are not limited to: facilitating conversations around a framework for improving teaching quality on our campus; and facilitating faculty working groups, Departmental Action Teams (DATs), in CEAS.
  • Identify and implement both quantitative and qualitative assessments to measure project effectiveness and contribute to the knowledge base around educational transformation.
  • Supporting faculty and departments in the change process by helping identify tools and assessments to improve teaching and learning measures in multiple disciplines.

What You Should Know

  • Ideal start date is January 13, 2020, though there is flexibility in the start date.
  • This is an initial one-year appointment, which is potentially renewable, pursuant to university policies and funding. The salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience.

What We Can Offer
Salary commensurate with experience.

Benefits
The University of Colorado offers excellent benefits, including medical, dental, retirement, paid time off, tuition benefit and ECO Pass. The University of Colorado Boulder is one of the largest employers in Boulder County and offers an inspiring higher education environment. Learn more about the University of Colorado Boulder.
