3. Post-production

  • Explore and implement new editing technologies and best practices
  • Assist in the evaluation of effectiveness of instructional media across the Lab’s portfolio
  • Ensure all media assets have timed transcription to adhere to accessibility requirements

You should have the following experience, knowledge and skills

Essential

  • Interest and enthusiasm for the use of media technology in education
  • Creative mind and storytelling skills
  • Ability to work as part of a team and successful delivery of projects, and to prioritize workloads when working on multiple projects
