The Director of Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship provides leadership, direction, planning, and oversight for the wide-range of outreach, consultation, instruction and development programs of the Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship (DP&S) work group. The staff, programs and services of DP&S are expected to partner with faculty and students to drive the effective integration of technology to enhance teaching, learning and research in the areas of innovative use of technology in the classroom (digital pedagogy, blended and hybrid learning, GIS, video and other multimedia) and in support of faculty teaching and student learning generally. The DP&S group also leads campus efforts in faculty research in digital scholarship both within and outside the classroom. In addition, the Director is responsible for assuring that continual research and visioning of possible future programs and technology initiatives are a regular part of DP&S’ planning process.
Working closely with the VP for Library and Information Technology and other members of the CIO Council, the Director assures the programs of DP&S are effectively integrated with the broader range of technology and instruction programs at Bucknell. More specifically, the Director of Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship works closely with the Director, Research Services and Information Literacy to assure an effective integration of library research services and instructional technology into a cohesive and seamless program that serves Bucknell University’s academic goals. The Director of Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship and Director of Research Services and Information Literacy are jointly responsible for creating and maintaining an outreach program that is thoughtfully proactive, consistent, and regularly brings new and forward-thinking ideas to faculty about possible applications for technology, information resources and services in the teaching and learning process. The Director of Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship also works closely with the Chief Technology Officer to update, maintain and support enterprise academic technology systems such as the learning management and blogging systems.
