Assistant Director, Experiential Learning

Creating engaging experiences for students and other learners to develop and practice socially engaged design skills is at the heart of what we do at the Center for Socially Engaged Design (C-SED). This role is a ‘first of its kind’ role at the Center and you will lead C-SED’s efforts to incorporate the concepts of socially engaged design into new and existing learning experiences for students inside and outside the classroom, in person and online. You will use, and refine our existing repository of 2500+ educational assets which includes lesson plans, workshop materials, online learning tools, and slide decks.

The Assistant Director will bring expertise in socially engaged design, human centered design, design education, and/or methods of design ethnography (ex: stakeholder engagement, data synthesis, ideation, prototyping) and will connect our educational content with the faculty, students, and programs that use the content. The person in this role will meet with faculty, student organizations and the C-SED team to understand learning objectives and subsequently design learning experiences that meet those objectives at a variety of scales. Designing learning experiences includes using evidence-based recommended practices to enhance student learning and putting C-SED’s library of educational content and resources into actionable workshop and curriculum plans. The Assistant Director will be an important team member in both the packaging of our content for instructors and learners as well as identifying gaps in our library and creating new ways of translating learning objectives into learning experiences.

The Socially Engaged Designer and Facilitator will work with the Strategic Director to build and lead C-SED’s design and facilitation arm aimed at supporting teams of interdisciplinary faculty and external partners to develop shared visions, goals, and tactical plans to solve complex challenges together. On any given day you will work to integrate perspectives, methods, processes, and outcomes to best support multi-stakeholder projects. You will communicate in multiple modalities and flexible contexts, creating visual and verbal artifacts and opportunities for cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional teams to move forward together.

To learn more about the process in action please explore an article and artifact about two designed and facilitated collaborative experiences in action, and a presentation at the National Organization for Research Develop Professionals. Come help us redesign how collaboration happens at Michigan!
