The Teaching Quality Framework project takes a systematic and research-based approach to transformation in education, particularly focussing on the deployment of scholarly evaluation tools and processes we use in teaching evaluation. It is part of a broader effort that seeks to improve undergraduate education at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU), through collective learning and cultural change at the departmental and institutional levels, that is being coordinated through our Center for STEM Learning (CSL). Notably, however, we are not limiting our change to STEM departments and seek to support change across our campus.
This is an initial 12-month appointment beginning as early as June 2018, which is potentially renewable, pursuant to university policies and funding. The salary is $50,000 per year and includes benefits as established by the university HR department. The successful candidate will collaborate with a broad group of engaging and nationally renowned faculty, post-docs, and graduate students across multiple departments at CU.
The postdoc on this project will act as both a facilitator and researcher on the project. As a facilitator, the postdoc will actively support departmental change through facilitation of departmental working groups that seek to identify scholarly measures of teaching effectiveness. Additionally, the postdoc will partner with faculty professional development experts in facilitating efforts as well as institutionalizing and scaling the process for improved teaching evaluation.
Our goal is to begin reviewing applications May 15,2018, and we will continue to review applications until the position is filled.
