        Subject: Job Opportunity: Open Educational Technologist, CUNY Graduate Center

GC Digital Initiatives (http://cuny.is/gcdi), in collaboration with The
Graduate Center's Teaching and Learning Center
(https://tlc.commons.gc.cuny.edu/) (TLC), seeks an Open Educational
Technology Specialist who will work on programming related to CUNY's
institutional investment in Open Educational Resources (OER). Beginning in
2017 and continuing into the upcoming academic year, New York State has
made significant investments in supporting the development, deployment, and
integration of OER across the curriculum.

This position will focus on CUNY's instance of Manifold
(http://cuny.manifoldapp.org/), an open-source publishing platform that
faculty use to share OER, and it will have a secondary focus on the CUNY
Academic Commons (https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/), an academic social network
used by many CUNY faculty to teach their courses. The Open Educational
Technology Specialist will support faculty and staff from across CUNY who
are doing OER-related work on these platforms.

The Open Educational Technology Specialist (OET) will work closely with
another OET hired in the Teaching and Learning Center last year and will
report to the Director of the Graduate Center's Digital Initiatives. The
position is funded for two (2) years.

limited to:

   - Visits CUNY campuses to run workshops and consults on strategies for
   open teaching with OER on Manifold.
   - Creates documentation and quick guides for the Manifold platform.
   - Consults with teachers and publishers using Manifold to create OERs.
   - Serves as an active member of the Manifold and CUNY Academic Commons
   teams and interfaces frequently with development teams as Manifold and the
   CUNY Academic Commons develop new features to support OER work.
