Instructional & Curriculum Design Specialist, Real World Learning

The Instructional & Curriculum Design Specialist (I&CDS) is a major asset in our work to re-imagine and design how we deliver workforce education.

Working closely with subject matter experts (SMEs) from our business and industry partners, this position leads the development of program maps and curriculum to reflect what industry needs in order to align with the most in-demand jobs in the Kansas City region. In addition, the I&CDS directly engages with instructors to provide and align curriculum with strong learning outcomes, while providing coaching in pedagogy and technology needs in the classroom and labs.

Specific responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Assemble and collaborate with a team of subject matter experts, faculty, and staff to design and implement 3-4 pilot program maps and curriculum, with additional scaling of programmatic development subsequently following the pilot. Curriculum should focus on clear student outcomes with industry-aligned competencies.
  • Assist instructors with preparing course outlines, syllabi, lesson plans, technology needs, resource guides, visual materials, and assist in textbook or course pack selection.
  • Working with the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) and other EMKF staff, design contextualized curriculum and framework materials, including assessment for the embedded "entrepreneurial mindset skills acquisition" as part of the overall technical program curriculum development.
  • Working with the CAO, develop a project plan for assigned programs, and prioritizing, designing, and implementing new program development.
