Founded in 1886, Yeshiva University (YU) has a strong tradition of combining Jewish scholarship with academic excellence and achievement in the liberal arts, sciences, medicine, law, business, social work, Jewish studies, education, psychology, and more.
We are a leading global educational institution that employs over 2,000 people across our various campus locations -- Wilf Campus, Beren Campus, Brookdale Center, Resnick Campus in the Bronx, the Gruss Institute in Jerusalem, the Boys High School in Manhattan and the Girls High School in Queens. From the distinguished faculty who teach here, to the dedicated staff, we work to fulfill our mission: to “bring wisdom to life” through all that we teach, by all that we do and for all those we serve. We seek to attract and retain engaged and committed individuals who contribute to an exciting working environment, where there is a sense of community and belonging, balanced with a significant cross section of people from diverse backgrounds working and studying together.
The University offers an excellent compensation package, and a broad range of employee benefit plans, including immediate participation in the University’s retirement plan. Staff members are typically eligible for four weeks paid vacation each year and a shuttle to nearby subway locations.
Yeshiva University invites applications for an innovative Director for the newly established Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning whose mission is to partner with and support faculty at all stages of their careers, furthering excellence and innovation in teaching and learning. The Director will lead a small unit that offers pedagogical assistance and instructional design services to faculty representing a broad range of academic fields and disciplines as they engage with technology to enrich the student experience. In both face-to-face and online sessions, the Center will provide training and resources that promote best-in-field teaching practices. Whether faculty teach undergraduates, graduate students, or nontraditional learners, the Center will assist in the development of appropriate methodologies and delivery mechanisms that are purposeful, learner-centered, and research-based. The Center will support the use of new media and emerging technologies in the classroom and online to foster the success of YU’s instructors and students.
Yeshiva University seeks an experienced, collaborative, and innovative professional who is committed to student success and to faculty professional development. Reporting to the Provost, the Director will work in partnership with faculty, an instructional designer, the information technology division, the Director of Libraries, and the Director of Student Learning and Assessment to establish and promote teaching and learning programs and services.
The Center will deliver a comprehensive set of services that will include workshops and webinars, curated resources, instructional design, school-specific consultation, and teaching observations whenever requested.
