Job: Learning Technologies and Digital Humanities Associate Director, UVA

From the ad:

The Contemplative Sciences Center (CSC) is hiring a Learning Technologies and Digital Humanities Associate Director. The Contemplative Science Center’s mission is to explore via teaching, research, and engagement diverse forms of learning and whole student education which integrate the academic and the personal. A key component of this work concerns digital technology and data-enabled approaches to learning and research, with the overall goal of integrating qualitative and quantitative methods in academic environments towards more varied forms of deep learning, consistent student flourishing, and diverse forms of research and publications. With this in mind, we have created and support a powerful Drupal-based academic content management system “Mandala,” which we are deploying at UVA to support learning and research initiatives, as well as new forms of publication for academic work. This is all in accordance with a broad definition of contemplation that envisions wide ranging and deep forms of reflection, and supporting practices enabling such reflection, as the quintessence of education.
