UCL is looking for 6 Digital Assessment Advisors who will work in a new Digital Assessment team, part of the Digital Education department within our Information Services Division. These roles will report to the head of this team, but work with nominated faculties to drive adoption of digital assessment at UCL.
Digital Education is UCL’s hub for supporting, exploiting and enhancing the use of technology in education and the new Digital Assessment team will provide a source of expertise and support on digital assessment.
The Digital Assessment Advisors will encourage the adoption of digital assessment at UCL including the use of a new assessment platform, AssessmentUCL, based on WISEflow by Uniwise. They will build an understanding of the needs of different departments and programmes, identify solutions, and give feedback to the digital assessment product team. They will provide training and support to academic and administrative colleagues, facilitate sharing of practice, and champion the capabilities of AssessmentUCL to drive forward adoption and engagement.
This is fixed term role until 2022.
We are keen to attract as broad a candidate pool as possible and the role can be carried out remotely, with attendance at campus based events required a couple of times a year.
To be successful in this role you will be of graduate calibre with a degree or equivalent level of experience gained in the work environment. You will have worked in higher education or a similar environment, with experience of teaching or training online and the ability to relate traditional teaching practice to the online environment. You will have a really solid understanding of how web-based, multimedia and mobile technologies can be used to enhance learning, teaching and assessment.
You will have a deep understanding of the pedagogical, social and cultural issues affecting the adoption of new learning environments/technologies and evidence of how you have developed strategies to deal with them.
You will be able to build productive relationships with individuals at all levels of the organisation and be able to influence and negotiate for change. Join us at this exciting time for UCL to make a real difference to the experience of our students.
