The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute is named in honour of the scientist Alan Turing and its mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
The Institute is currently expanding its resources and commitment to professional development and academic training. This growth will include our directly employed members of the business team and academic researchers as well as the provision we offer nationally in our convening role as a national institute. The roles of online resources and blended learning were already part of this expansion strategy but have been prioritised to take the opportunity of a more distributed model of engagement driven by recent global events. We are looking to recruit an Educational Technologist to ensure that our virtual learning environment infrastructure and resources are designed, deployed and evaluated at the highest quality to support the Turing’s contribution to developing data skills within the UK and internationally.
Working within the Professional and Academic Development team, the role holder will be responsible for guiding the decision making and implementation required to build the organisational identity in the online learning space. They will also provide ongoing expert advice and support in the creation and evaluation of resources for our professional and academic programmes. This role will provide a chance for a motivated individual to harness both technical and creative skills in a truly cross-cutting research environment.
