Technology, Learning and Leadership specialization. This will be a joint

the tenure home in the Department of Teaching and Learning, Policy and
Leadership. Located in the Washington, DC-Baltimore corridor, the University
of Maryland, College Park is the flagship research university and a land
grant institution committed to rigorous research, quality teaching and
informed public service. The TLPL Department and the iSchool are deeply
committed to equity and excellence, embrace a broad range of theoretical and
methodological orientations, value collaborative research and encourage
faculty to work across program divisions and specializations. Therefore, all
relevant specializations are welcome. 

We seek applicants with expertise and research interests in learning,
motivation and assessment with technologies. The successful candidate (a)
has published (or has demonstrated potential to publish) in leading refereed
journals, conferences and respected professional outlets; (b) has a vision

Computer Science teacher education, and learning analytics, are of
particular interest. 


The Technology, Learning and Leadership (TLL) specialization is
interdisciplinary, encouraging collaborative work, not only between the TLPL
Department and the iSchool, but also with Computer Science and other
disciplines in the University. Currently, faculty conduct research in
several areas, including computational thinking, gaming, STEM education,
assessment, mobile technologies, and wearable technology. Faculty in this
specialization area have a strong track record of procuring research
funding. Regular, collegial meetings for faculty and students across the
university are hosted by The Center for Science and Technology in Education
in the TLPL Department and the Human-Computer Interaction Lab in the
iSchool. As the TLPL Department and iSchool are committed to increasing the
diversity of the campus community, candidates are encouraged to identify
their experiences in working with a diverse range of faculty, staff, and
students, and their contributions to a climate of inclusivity. 


Responsibilities will include teaching and advising Masters and Doctoral
students in the TLL specialization and in the iSchool, teaching
undergraduate preservice teachers, and leadership in the TLL program area.
