video analysis of teaching and learning. The initial position will be
available as early as January, 2013 for an initial fixed term appointment of
one year. Renewal of the appointment for up to 3 years is possible.
The College of Education plans to build on its strong history of research on
teaching and learning by developing a facility and associated tools to support
coding, storage, retrieval, and analysis of video recordings of interactions
between teachers and students. The specialist will have the opportunity to
work with faculty and doctoral students as they design and conduct research
projects that use both existing recordings and newly collected video data.
Working in the collaboration with faculty, the specialist will play a central
role in designing, constructing, maintaining, and updating a state-of-the-art
system for video analysis.

multi-media data. Experience connected to classroom instruction in K-12 or
higher education is also desirable. The successful candidate will likely have
3 or more years of successful experience working with researchers using multi-
media data and/or teaching at a K-12 or university level. A master's degree or
higher in educational technology or information sciences, or equivalent, is
required. The candidates must have appropriate technological knowledge to
design the video laboratory, including knowledge of databases and meta-data,
multi-media systems, audio and video recording of educational settings, and
processes for sharing, editing and archiving research data.
