Location: Baltimore, MD Category: Other Positions Posted On: Mon Nov 23 2020 Job Description:
The Center for the Advancement of Scholarship & Teaching (CAST) invites applications for a part-time Digital Arts & Technology Specialist, to begin work in Spring 2021. The Digital Arts & Technology Specialist will manage a grant-funded initiative to enhance integration of new technology into arts courses and classrooms at Goucher. This work includes (but is not limited to): researching arts technologies, leading faculty and student trainings, providing technical support to faculty using new technologies, aiding in the development of a technology check-out system, supervising and assisting students in equipment checkout, and supporting faculty development of new, interdisciplinary art courses that integrate technology. Ideal candidates will have prior college-level arts teaching experience and a wide breadth of experience with various forms of digital art technology (software and hardware). This position is grant funded and will last at least through the duration of the grant (Summer 2022).
Candidates will be evaluated in three areas, all of which should be addressed in the cover letter:
1) Ability to assist faculty and students with new and evolving technology for the arts. We seek someone who is a fast learner, is well-versed in arts technology, and can effectively assist others in adopting this new technology. We value colleagues who can problem solve how to make something work. Candidates with experience in Adobe Creative Cloud and digital video recording and editing (with iMovie, Adobe Premiere and audio software), as well as experience assisting others with these technologies, will be preferred. 2) The Digital Arts & Technology Specialist will work with both faculty and students to be able to navigate the Goucher's Sherman Fairchild Recording Studio. Candidate must have an understanding and experience of working in an audio recording studio, preferable with an AVB interface. The candidate will have knowledge concerning audio equipment such as microphones, digital mixers, stage boxes, etc. The candidate should also be familiar with audio applications such as Logic Pro X, Adobe Audition, and DaVinci Resolve. 3) Ability to collaborate and be interdisciplinary. Goucher arts courses include photography, dance, theatre, digital film & television, music and audio production - all of which will be supported by the Digital Arts & Technology Specialist. Therefore, the candidate must be open to - or experienced with - investigating technologies outside their own artistic specialty. In addition to working with these faculty, the Specialist will collaborate on programming with the CAST Director and be a liaison between faculty and Instructional Technology. 4) Goucher College endeavors to be a model teaching and learning community, enriched by robust innovation, diversity, and engagement. We seek candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to diverse perspectives and a dedication to engaged pedagogies that support equity and student success. Application materials should clearly articulate how the candidate will contribute to the college's commitment to diversity and equity.
