Good afternoon ATHEN:

We currently have an exciting new job opportunity here at the McBurney Disability Resource Center (the office for students with disabilities) on the University of Wisconsin - Madison campus. This instructional technology position specializes in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (media captioning, ALDs, remote captioning/interpreting) and integration with campus instruction, but will be involved with other areas of the Center as well, such as databases, online training production, web/document/e-book accessibility, and AT.

Please share with others who you think might be interested.


Applications are due Friday February 13, 2015

The Instructional and Media Technology Specialist plans, develops, implements, and supports the delivery of technology-based classroom (traditional/online) accommodations along with the staff captioners and interpreters. The Specialist integrates these accommodations with traditional classrooms, blended/online courses, and instructional technology, with a primary focus on media captioning production, remote captioning delivery, and adaptive technology for students with hearing loss. Other responsibilities include creation of online trainings, web development, web accessibility, document/e-book accessibility, and other areas of adaptive/assistive technology.

The position leverages innovation, project management, instructional design/technology, video, information technology, adaptive technology, and problem solving skills in conjunction with disability knowledge to provide high quality and effective services in the larger context of UW-Madison courses and universal design. This position is highly collaborative and is an instructional technology coordinator between students, faculty, captioners, interpreters, instructional technologists/designers, classroom support, IT support, and vendors.

Thank you,
Todd Schwanke
