Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute seeks well qualified applicants for the Director of Instructional Design position, working primarily from its Hartford, CT campus. As part of a dynamic leadership team, the Director of Instructional Design leads a small but nimble team to design and develop programs and courses specifically for graduate-level mentored project-based digital delivery. The Director of Instructional Design manages four design team workstreams - term-to-term course preparation, scheduled program design review/revision, learning resource development and augmentation, and new program design and development. The director develops a production schedule and utilizes agile project management techniques to assure each workstream's outcomes are achieved on-time and on-specification. The Director supervises a team of Designers and assigns projects according to priority, ability and need. The Director works directly with the analytics and technology teams to evaluate program effectiveness and to ensure the digital classroom meets design principles as established. The Director assembles analytical reports and functional requirements for future digital classroom and design upgrades. Finally, the Director intellectually contributes to an evolving design principle of optimized learning and personal engagement, directly assessed learning, and learner mentorship for adult working professional learners distributed around the world. The successful candidate will hold a masters degree or higher, and a minimum of five years' experience: developing and managing production schedules using agile project management; leading teams to develop digitally delivered academic programs built around learning goals and competencies; hiring, mentoring and developing highly talented members of an Instructional Design team who may at times be working remotely; and in effectively using digital learning frameworks and software tools to design and deliver excellent engaged learning experiences. The optimal candidate is:

  • Well-versed in learning science to collaborate with faculty and subject matter experts on course/program design, learning resources, learning activities and evaluation tools, to directly achieve program learning goal and competency learning mastery.
  • Passionate about designing compelling and engaging learning activities, learning assessments, and learning resources, in a digital format, for highly motivated learners.
  • Expert in using learning management systems such as Canvas to facilitate learning and provide an engaging and personal learning experience.
  • Adept at working within a team environment where collaboration and shared responsibility are fundamental to success, especially when team members may be working remotely.
  • Able to manage multiple projects simultaneously and effectively, for multiple workstreams with tight time constraints.
  • Experienced in working in a technical environment where standards and approaches are continuously being updated and changed, and where new tools and development environments are continuously changing.
  • Agile in using data to evaluate engagement and learning with an eye to continuously improving learning journeys and program design.
  • Ability to set standards, define metrics, refine processes, and plan. We welcome candidates who will bring diverse cultural, ethnic, national and international perspectives to Rensselaer's work and campus communities.
