A research opportunity is available at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
This opportunity will allow participants to be involved in projects and activities related to planning and development of training for CDC staff on key scientific integrity and quality activities for continuous learning and professional education to develop and sustain a capable, competent scientific workforce.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will have the opportunity to learn about:
1. Developing training curriculum and materials.
2. Learning objectives and task learning relationships, cluster learning events, organize course content, and instruction design plans.
4. Analyzing learning problems, selecting teaching strategies using appropriate models, and developing course plans using this information.
5. Working with Subject Matter Experts to develop storyboards and audio scripts.
6. Developing learning maps and performing learning analyses from the initial training levels through the operating levels of tasks or jobs.
7. Deriving performance objectives and criterion test items.
8. Creating online courses that are 508- compliant and use SCORM 1.1 and 1.2 to publish online courses to the Learning Management System.
This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC. The initial appointment is for 8-12 months, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at CDC in the Atlanta, Georgia, area. Participants do not become employees of CDC or the program administrator, and there are no fringe benefits paid.
