Technology Copilots for Spring 2021

Undergraduate Student Hourly Position

Do you enjoy helping teachers use classroom technologies? Are you comfortable using technologies such as Zoom, iClicker, and A/V control units? And, do you have the desire and ability to learn new technologies quickly? The Office of Information Technology is looking to hire several technology copilots. The Technology Copilots help instructors in the classroom (or on Zoom for fully remote classes) facilitate their remote students’ participation as they use academic technologies. Technology Copilots will be paired with instructors for specific classes for the entire semester and work with them to determine how best to meet their needs. This position may require you to be on campus. If the campus goes into remote-only teaching mode, you’ll be working remotely. 

Position Duties: 

  • Arrive before the class session to turn on and set up technologies.

  • Help the instructor use the room’s audio-visual system (connecting to and testing peripherals.) 

  • Connect to and manage the Zoom videoconferencing system, including:

    • Communicating with the instructor when students who are attending remotely have questions.

    • Assigning and managing breakout rooms. 

  • Clean (sanitize) the equipment (and table surfaces) before and after use. 

  • Attend staff training and meetings as requested. 

  • Be reactive to communications from professors and the rest of the team. 

You will be provided with training for the duties of this position. You don’t need to have any technical debugging skills (if a problem occurs with the in-class technology, we’ll contact the Classroom Support team). This is an undergraduate hourly position for up to 20 for hours per week (depending on how many classes you are assigned to), starting at $13 per hour. These positions report to the Manager of the Technology Copilots. The ideal candidate will have:

  • Strong interpersonal skills.

  • The ability to work independently and within a team.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

  • The ability to learn new technologies quickly.

  • The ability to facilitate the communication and activities of people who are remote.
