You will also be expected to act in a professional advisory role to help individuals, departments and faculties to develop their curricula and teaching practice.

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed

You will have a minimum of a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent, as well as a higher education teaching qualification and/or HEA Fellowship. You should have knowledge of current HE pedagogy and approaches to teaching, including the application of technology to support learning. You will have the ability to design and deliver workshops and related learning material and experience of teaching and/or educational development practice within a higher education setting.

Interview date: 29 June 2022
