Summary

Society has changed dramatically over the last few decades and colleges and universities have begun to realize that they will only survive change by increasing their use of new technologies. In order to facilitate the increased utilization of technology, many colleges and universities have begun to hire Instructional Technologists. One problem is that the role, qualifications, and responsibilities of the Instructional Technologist are often ill-defined. This paper proposes various roles the Instructional Technologist can play in higher education and describes the typical activities and qualifications of each role. It also includes a description of ten recent Instructional Technologist position announcements from colleges around the country as well as a discussion of the key questions colleges should ask themselves before hiring an Instructional Technologist. Recommendations for developing an Instructional Technologist position description include: (1) work with faculty, staff, and administration to define the role and prepare a job announcement prior to beginning the hiring process; (2) clearly define the job description, avoiding impossibly broad responsibilities; (3) clearly define the Instructional Technologist's position within the organizational structure; and (4) emphasize the importance of interpersonal and professional skills.
