NRC PLE Project Job Opportunities
The NRC's Personal Learning Environment (PLE) project received formal approval today, and job postings have been announced. I will be managing this project.

The R&D activities will focus across two dimensions: how access to a wide variety of learning opportunities can best be managed in an online environment; and how technologies can be assembled to best provide seamless access to a large variety of educational resources and services. In essence, the scientific problem is one of designing an educational infrastructure based on future best practices and then developing an educational application that will work within that infrastructure.

The positions, which are for three years, include:
- Researcher specializing in education and pedagogy
- Researcher specializing in art, design and new media
- Researcher specializing in library and information management
- Technology specialist with an emphasis on database support
- technology specialist with an emphasis on application development

We also have two positions open for computer support staff on another project - see the full employment listing. And that's not all. We have more positions opening up in the near future as we staff additional positions and projects - I will be announcing them on this site.
