ILiADS Position Description: Coach
The Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship (ILiADS) brings together teams of digital scholars and instructors for a concentrated week of project-development in late summer. This community of practice consists of the teams, each of which is comprised by some mixture of faculty, students, instructional technologists, and librarians; of ILiADS Coaches, who are the liaisons between projects and the ILiADS community at large; and of the ILiADS Experts, who dive deep with teams on technical issues and decisions for various projects as needed.
ILiADS Coaches serve as mentors and liaisons to members of project teams attending the ILiADS Summer Institute (July 23 – 29, 2016). Coaches consult with the accepted project teams on the scope and specifications of their project, assist in identifying project teams with similar interests and resource needs, and connect projects with ILiADS Experts who can address the needs of the specific project goals.
