DCU has a rich and long history of innovation in teaching by providing flexible pathways to university-level education to diverse and geographically dispersed learners. The Open Education Unit has been providing adults all over Ireland (and abroad) with flexible access to online distance education for over 30-years. In 2013, DCU launched the National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) with the Open Education Unit as part of the new Institute. NIDL’s mission is to exploit a full range of digital technologies to provide students with transformative learning experience, whether they are on or off campus. For students studying off-campus it does this through the DCU Connected online learning platform. The Open Education Unit manages the delivery of many of the DCU Connected courses.

The Open Education Unit is currently inviting applicants to join a panel of academic tutors for several modules on its DCU Connected programme offerings. We are currently recruited passionate and skilled specialists to teach on modules relating to web development (client and server-side), Java programming, database design and development and mobile application with android. If you have technical expertise in software development and wish to join our team of part-time teaching staff who facilitate learning for students in online, face to face and blended learning settings we would love to hear from you.
