Demonstrated educational & technical expertise in the development and maintenance of e-learning products, platforms, tools & ...

The educational landscape is in a state of constant and rapid change. Teachers need to be able to use a number of eLearning products, platforms, tools and environments to remain relevant and able to engage their students in a VET environment that is continually being pressured by declining budgets, as well as Government and Industry agendas.
Educational Designers must have the educational and technical expertise in the development and maintenance of eLearning products, platforms, tools and environments. This means they are able to lead, guide and mentor staff effectively, to help achieve the Learning Innovation and Product Development (KFA 5) strategic direction (2009-2011), so that the Institute remains at the forefront of VET delivery and assessment.
