Reporting to the Head of the Digital Library Program, the Digital Curriculum Program Coordinator (DCPC) will develop a curricular support program for the next two academic years that connects the digital resources curated and published by the Digital Library Program with teaching on the UCLA campus. The DCPC will address a current and urgent need to support instructional design and learning modules for remote instruction, online learning, and blended teaching models. The incumbent will use skills of instructional design and multimedia development to leverage the wide array of digital content from the UCLA Library and the Film and Television Archive to develop effective teaching and learning activities for use by UCLA faculty and instructors.

The DCPC will work collaboratively within the UCLA Library, which has a wide array of instructional support and outreach specialists spanning several departments and teams. The DCPC will serve as an outreach specialist for using open access and digital primary sources in teaching across the UCLA campus. The incumbent will seek out partnerships with research and teaching organizations across the UCLA campus, including but not limited to the Digital Research Consortium, the Digital Humanities program, the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, the UCLA Excellence in Pedagogy and Innovative Classrooms Program, and the UCLA Online Teaching & Learning Program. Working with scholars across the UCLA campus, the DCPC will provide support for incorporating digital resources into the curriculum and will provide pathways for campus entities to use library services (Data Science, ML/AI, GIS, AR/VR). The DCPC will demonstrate a high degree of collaboration and diplomacy as well as demonstrate effective problem analysis and creative solutions.
