The person


We seek creative, curious, and energetic people to join our growing learning experience practice. Your passion for education shines through in everything you do, but you are grounded in education theory. You like to challenge yourself and clients. But also know when you need to focus to deliver to timelines as a member of a high performing team.

We have a current need for multiple ongoing learning designers to work in our team with higher education and TAFE providers. Our team is cross-sectoral, and while we expect most applicants to specialise in one sector you may view this as an opportunity to broaden your experience.

We are also interested in applications from Learning Designers who are available on a part time or contract basis.

  • Communicate effectively and professionally individually and in teams including client stakeholders and colleagues at Curio.

Selection Criteria (required)

  • A Bachelors degree.
  • Two to five years' experience working in a TAFE/higher education/University learning and teaching environment.
  • Experience in designing and developing online learning content.

  • High-level problem-solving skills and an ability to be adaptive and innovative.
  • Experience in the use and integration of educational technologies, rich/interactive media and digital content/resources in curriculum design, within a learning management system.
  • Demonstrated ability to exercise initiative and autonomy.

Desired Criteria

  • A Masters or PhD.
  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
  • Dual-sector experience would be an advantage.
  • Capacity to interact with and critically evaluate new and emerging learning technologies and identify avenues to innovation and improvement in current teaching and learning practices.

Benefits

  • A flexible work environment utilising industry best practice in human-centred design and driven by a design thinking approach.
  • An opportunity to make a genuine difference to the design of online and hybrid experiences that transform and empower learners.
