Harvard University Graduate School of Education

Full-Professor or Associate-Professor

The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) seeks to make a faculty
appointment in its Technology in Education (TIE) concentration at the
full-professor (with tenure) or associate-professor level.

HGSE is committed to improving the opportunities for all children to learn and
thrive. With rapid progress in technology, we anticipate major changes in the
future educational environment -- in the ways that children will learn, and in
the ways that educational practitioners and policy-makers will facilitate that
learning. Consequently, we seek to strengthen our core mission by expanding
our concentration in technology to provide educational practitioners and
policy-makers with greater access to the knowledge and skills they will need to
make sensible educational decisions in a future environment of rapid
technological change.

We therefore seek a new colleague with interests in the wise, equitable and
effective application of technology in classrooms, schools and/or other
educational settings. We are particularly interested in appointing a scholar
whose research and development focuses on the impact of technology in relation
to social, psychological, political, cultural, or other important aspects of
education. The successful candidate should have a record of high-quality
scholarship and a history of funded research and development. Additional
qualities for which we are searching include: an ability to teach and mentor a
diverse student body of both practitioners and researchers; a capacity for
engaging in cross-Area and cross-Program collaboration; and a willingness to
play a leadership role in programmatic development.

The appointment(s) will be in the School's Learning and Teaching Area, and
could begin as early as the 1997-98 academic year.

Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, a statement of their
research and teaching interests, three examples of their scholarship and
educational products, and the names of three or more people who could serve as
referees, by no later than January 20, 1997, to:

Chair, Technology in Education Search Committee
c/o Gail Keeley, Coordinator of Academic Services
Harvard Graduate School of Education
122 Longfellow Hall
Cambridge, MA 02138

The Harvard Graduate School of Education prepares students and professionals of
diverse backgrounds for positions of leadership in research and practice in
education, and is an affirmative action employer. Applications from women and
minorities are strongly encouraged.
