Education Technologist

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights (The Center) is a museum and human rights educational institution located in Atlanta, GA, the cradle of civil rights.  The Center connects the U.S. civil rights movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s to global human rights movements for the rights of people of color, women, immigrants, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ people, and other marginalized groups. Through our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiative, the Campaign for Equal Dignity, mission-based Institutes, expansive educational offerings, and immersive and engaging storytelling we inspire each of us to reflect and think critically, exercise empathy in action, and create positive change locally and globally.   

The Center is seeking an Education Technologist to develop and implement an eLearning educational portal.  This is a full-time, two-year term position that may be extended with additional funding.  The right candidate will come with a belief in our mission to create dynamic and empathy-building experiences, teach history’s connection to the present, and inspire the change-maker in each of us to promote civil and human rights. 



The Education Technologist is responsible for researching, developing, and implementing the NCCHR Educational Portal. The portal is a website that offers learners interaction and collaboration on eLearning content like courses, presentations, podcasts and tests as well as content management for eLearning providers. The Education Technologist will work with our Education and Interpretation team to bring the vision for the portal to fruition: to serve as the “go to” home for educational content, curriculum, and professional development modules for civil and human rights history, current events, and related subjects.  The ideal candidate will be familiar with learning management systems and educational platforms that are user friendly and will support educators and students looking to take a deeper dive into civil and human rights education.
