We are looking for someone who is passionate about using technology to enhance teaching and learning, and who will be proactive in improving the experience of all Hull York Medical School (HYMS) students. The School is an equal partnership between the universities of Hull and York and operates in association with the NHS in North and East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire, delivering quality medical education at sites throughout the region. The School has a diverse and growing student body, with a now well established undergraduate MB BS programme, and an expanding range of taught and research postgraduate programmes.
The School is committed to excellence in medical education and is currently in the process of implementing a comprehensively revised and improved curriculum in our MB BS programme. We have re-evaluated our use of Technology Enhanced Learning as part of this review process, allowing us to ensure that we are making the best use of these approaches to support teaching, learning, assessment and administrative activities across all programmes. The post holder will join the award-winning Learning Enhancement and Support Team (based in York) and be expected to contribute to the advice, support and guidance the team provides to the academic teams implementing the new MB BS curriculum and also all existing and future HYMS educational programmes (including short courses, postgraduate programmes, CPD, and research related education and training).
Under the leadership of the Learning Enhancement and Support Manager, the post holder is expected to develop key working relationships with the academic and administrative leads across all of our programmes and to offer advice and guidance to ensure consistency of approaches and support across all TEL activities in HYMS. As a partnership between the Universities of Hull and York, HYMS staff employed in a University context are employed either by the University of Hull, or by the University of York. The post of Learning Enhancement and Support Officer will be an appointment by the University of York, based principally on campus at the University of York.
The team supports teaching in both university and clinical settings, and occasional travel to partner university and NHS sites is required to develop and support the use of TEL throughout the HYMS student experience (please see job description for further details).
Interviews for this post will take place on 4 November 2016 at the University of York.
For informal discussion please contact Paul Scott, Learning Enhancement and Support Manager, tel: 01904 321752, email: email@example.com
