Roles of specialist staff

Learning Designers

The need for Learning Designers (LDs) in equipping teachers is increasing, but little is known about how to employ and retain these capacity builders as the higher education sector changes.  Anecdotal evidence suggested that a LD role is no longer seen as only translating technology into an educational context on an individual academic support basis, but their roles overlapped professional and academic boundaries. There was a need to understand baseline practices for directors of central units but also for learning designers themselves for career progression. UQ led a research team in a national survey of LDs (n=104) which provided new and helpful evidence for institutional decision makers.

Several outputs were created from this project, firstly a Snapshot of the Learning Design Profession (PDF) infographic, two academic papers presented at the ASCILITE 2019 Conference in Singapore(pp. 272-281)(PDF) and the HERDSA Conference in Auckland. Numerous presentations were also undertaken, with the final project presentation to Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching (CAULLT) in Melbourne, in March 2018.
