EdTech and AV Tech Open Positions
Do you like working on projects where you have the capacity to make a truly meaningful contribution? Are you interested in being a part of how medical education is changing at Stanford? If yes, then one of the below positions is for you!
Applications for 2022-2023 are now closed. If you have interest in working with the EdTech team in other capacities, please contact us here.
AV Tech Classroom Support Student
- We are hiring incoming first year and returning second year MD and MSPA students to support faculty in using classroom technology.
- Requirements include comfort with: attending class in person, AV troubleshooting, Zoom, Microsoft Office, and assisting faculty
- Pay starts at $16/hr and you may claim .5 hours per lecturer you support.
MD and MSPA support students are responsible for coordinating with each other to make sure at least one student support worker is present at all core curriculum lectures. Students are responsible for the lectures they commit to attend and, if they cannot attend, are responsible for asking the other student to cover for them or for notifying Art Bascos (email@example.com, 650-575-4232) that the session will need support from AV Tech staff.
MSPA support students are responsible for attending all required MSPA course sessions that are taken separately from the MD class.
All support students are responsible for tracking and submitting their own time worked via axess.stanford.edu. Students must claim only the time that they worked. Any inconsistency between the times claimed and the times actually worked will result in termination.
Though this position is hired for in-person classes, should any situation arise where classes are held remotely, the responsibilities of this position will be shifted to support remote teaching and learning.
Pay rate for this position starts at $16/hr and you may claim .5 hours per lecturer you support.
Before class, I will:
Arrive 10 minutes early to each class session I am committed to support. If I am running unavoidably late and cannot contact my support student colleague, I will notify Art Bascos (firstname.lastname@example.org, 650-575-4232). If Art is not available, I will notify the Support Line at: 650-724-7370.
When I first enter the classroom, I will:
Introduce myself to the speaker as "Your Name, Classroom Support".
If necessary, login to the correct Zoom meeting for simulcast. I will not distribute the Zoom link.
Check the charge on the microphones. If they need to be charged, I will call the Support Line at: 650-724-7370
Assist the faculty/speaker with the lighting presets, video routing, mic, presentation and any additional set-up needs.
Let the faculty know that I will provide them with time reminders when there are five minutes remaining and then when there is no time remaining for the scheduled session. If faculty do not want to be notified, I will honor their request.
Take the aisle seat closest to the lectern (first or second row - to make it easier to assist during the lecture).
During class, I will:
Sit near the lectern to assist quickly when needed.
Assist with digital inking, polling or other computer support. If there is a question I can't answer, I will call the Support Line at: 650-724-7370
Check the microphones at breaks. If they need to be charged, I will call the Support Line at: 650-724-7370
Make sure the microphones are turned on after breaks.
If there is any media in the classroom presentation that could be PHI, I will notify email@example.com
Provide time reminders to let the speaker know when time is ending (5 minutes remaining and time is up).
On request, upload the original and annotated PowerPoint files to the Mediadropbox (http://med.stanford.edu/mediadropbox).
Remind students and faculty to take questions outside the classroom after class – to allow the next class to begin promptly.
On a quarterly basis, I will:
Attend brief (30 minute) training updates scheduled by AV Tech.
When there's an issue deserving attention, give feedback to supervisor, Art Bascos (firstname.lastname@example.org, 650-575-4232).

Video QA students perform regular reviews of all media published by Stanford Medicine’s automated lecture capture system. The students are responsible for coordinating with each other to make sure published media is reviewed within 3 business days of the publication date. During this review, the students will confirm that all expected files are published and viable. Students will also note any observed technical issues or suspected PHI. Students are responsible for the media they commit to reviewing and, if they cannot complete the review, are responsible for asking the other student to cover for them or for notifying Tela Caul (email@example.com) that the session will need support from EdTech staff.
Video QA students are responsible for tracking and submitting their own time worked via axess.stanford.edu. Student must claim only the time that they worked.
Weekly hours expected for this role will vary due to fluctuating demand from quarter to quarter and throughout each quarter. Special events, such as conferences, will also cause week to week variances. On average, students can expect approximately 10-15 hours per week during the Fall and Winter quarters, up to 10 hours per week during the Spring quarter, and 3-4 hours per week during the Summer quarter.
Once each week:
- I will confirm video QA availability and commitments with the other video QA student. In case of a gap in coverage, I will notify Tela Caul (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For each presentation I review, I will:
- Review media within 3 business days of publication.
- Verify that the expected 3 files (streaming video, video podcast, and audio podcast) are available and viable.
- Review the media to detect any technical issues, including missing video feeds or audio issues.
- Detect any potential PHI, either shown on slides, mentioned by the speaker, or present in the classroom.
- Complete a File Check Report with presentation details and any issues that require additional review.
On a quarterly basis I will:
