Term: 1 Year
The Program Development Specialist project manages course and program development and in certain cases University or external projects. In the case of course or program development, the Program Development Specialist is the project lead and is responsible for the timely completion of projects. They work with the subject matter expert (SME) to establish project milestones based on the expected delivery date of the course, and then ensure the SME provides the requisite raw course materials on time, and ensure course materials are added to the course. At times, they also work collaboratively with the course author to develop raw course materials. While the Program Development Specialist has authority internally, they work in partnership with the subject matter expert, and exercise no management authority in that relationship.
