Other Opportunities

Assistant Web Content Curators (Multiple Positions)

Our website is crucial for providing access to our services and support. Besides hosting just-in-time resources and professional events, such as webinars and our annual online conference, our website also hosts two peer-reviewed publications and archives of our multimodal events. Altogether, this content requires multiple volunteers to maintain and make it accessible—and we’re adding new material every month! We invite GSOLE members with any level of experience to get more involved as Assistant Web Content Curators. Besides helping to facilitate online community and improve access to important OLI resources, you’ll have an opportunity to work with GSOLE administrators and the leaders of our program development committees.

We especially encourage GSOLE members interested in the following OLI topics to apply:

  • Multimodal composition
  • Accessible design
  • Online discourse communities
  • Collaborative composition

Interested members should send a CV and a paragraph explaining their interest in the Web Curator role to president@gsole.org.

Research Committee Members (Multiple Positions)

The GSOLE Research Committee works to support emerging and established scholars in the field of Online Literacy Instruction. All members of the Research Committee are stepping down, so the committee will need new members. Some issues that the new committee might address:

  • Refining procedures and guidelines for applying for and reporting on progress in research fellowships
  • Providing flexibility on how research funds might be spent (e.g., for childcare to work)
  • Updating the Research Support node on the GSOLE website to reflect these changes

Interested members should send a CV and a paragraph explaining their interest in the Research Committee to president@gsole.org.
