The Learning Sciences & Assessment Academic Group (LSA) at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore invites educational practitioners who possess at least a Master's degree with a specialization in Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) to apply for a faculty position on the Lecturer track. Technology-enhanced learning is an important area of teaching and research at the LSA AG. It includes sub-areas such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) in education, computer-supported collaborative learning, game-based learning, AR/VR for learning, blended learning, learning analytics, ICT integration in teaching and learning, etc.

The LSA AG is an interdisciplinary academic group that focuses on understanding learning and assessment from multiple perspectives with the ultimate goal of enhancing and ensuring educative outcomes for all learners. Our mission is to enable educational practitioners to become designers of learning experiences and environments and active contributors in a reflective community of practice. The academic group grapples with the tensions and the nexus between learning, assessment, and instructional design, by mediating the design process as both a science and an art. Currently, we offer courses for initial teacher education, as well as graduate programmes such as the Master of Arts (Instructional Design and Technologies), Master of Education (Learning Sciences and Technologies), Master of Arts in Professional Education (Training and Development), Master of Teaching, Master of Science (Science of Learning), Doctor of Education (Technologies and Technology-Mediated Learning Environments) and Doctor of Philosophy (Education).

LSA AG invites applicants with experience in facilitating technology-enhanced learning at the initial teacher education and in-service teacher professional development to apply for the position.

The candidate would play an active role in teaching and managing pre-service teacher education courses and in-service professional development workshops.
