Job description

Open, online and blended education is the future. As an educational advisor, you will steer TU Delft lecturers toward the opportunities presented by online, open and blended education. You will often work together with your colleagues within the Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) team, where high-quality, research-based and innovative education is high on the agenda. You will support and advise lecturers in developing online courses for life-long learners and working professionals, as well as blended courses for campus education. This position is right for you, if you are skilled in collaborating on (re)designing courses, developing engaging assessment tasks, and advising on how a tool can make a course even better. We’re looking for a colleague who knows how to find the right balance between practical solutions and the ideal situation, when designing and delivering online and blended courses.

We aim to educate the world, and allow as many people as possible to benefit from the scientific knowledge of TU Delft. You can help us do this by guiding groups of lecturers and student assistants (course teams) in the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). You will not develop course materials yourself; in this role, you are mainly involved as an educational advisor, with insights into how to transform our lecturers’ disciplinary knowledge into engaging online learning. You provide your team members with the feedback, tools and insights to make their project a success. You will be supported through the processes, knowledge, templates, workshops and (open) materials that have already been developed within the team, which you can further contribute to. You usually supervise about twenty course teams at the same time, with some teams asking for more or a different type of guidance than others. By asking the right questions in working sessions and listening carefully, you will discover what your teams need and adjust your approach accordingly. In this respect, you will largely determine what your own agenda looks like. Development processes take an average of nine months to a year. To help teams further on their way, you will also organize various workshops yourself, for example about video editing, open education, script writing, or online community management.

You will work together with other learning developers within Teaching and Learning Services – a committed and international team of about twenty colleagues, who focus on training teachers, providing didactic advice on various educational issues and in the field of developing online, open and blended education. In addition to these direct colleagues, you will often work together with lecturers and student assistants from all faculties: intelligent, headstrong people, who usually don’t hide their opinions. Your challenge is to forge unity, to choose a clear course structure and to motivate your course teams to deliver products that everyone supports.


  • You have a Master’s Degree in education, preferably in instructional design or educational technology or a comparable level, based on work experience.
  • You have at least one year of experience in advising teachers and/or content experts in the development of online or blended education.
  • You are well acquainted with the (im)possibilities of ICT in education and you have innovative ideas about digital and online learning, supervision and testing.
  • You are enthusiastic, and able postively influence a wide range of people, who comprise the course teams that you supervise. Even in complex processes, you keep your spirits up and you motivate people.
  • You can handle the dynamics of your work well and keep all the balls in the air, even when unexpected changes occur.
  • You enjoy working in an international environment and switch fluently to English (the working language in your team and in most projects). Fluency in Dutch is a bonus, but not expected.
  • Conditions of employment

  • Contract duration: 1 year with prospect of extension.
  • Working hours: 32-40 hours per week.
  • A salary according to the Collective Labor Agreement of the Dutch Universities (salary scale 11), plus 8% holiday allowance and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%.
  • An excellent pension scheme via the ABP.
  • The possibility to compile an individual employment package every year.
  • Discount with health insurers.
  • Flexible working week.
  • Every year, 232 leave hours (at 38 hours). You can also sell or buy additional leave hours via the individual choice budget.
  • Plenty of opportunities for education, training and courses.
  • Partially paid parental leave
  • Attention for working healthy and energetically with the vitality program.
