At NTU, we are focused on the big, complex challenges that our world faces. In shaping our next strategy, we are re-imagining what a university can be. We will be taking bold and distinctive steps to drive even greater excellence, to empower and create opportunities for all our staff and students so they may learn, discover and enrich society locally, nationally and internationally. To support this vision, we are now seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Academic Practice.
It’s an exciting opportunity which will see you support our Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in HE (PGCLTHE) and Academic Professional Apprenticeship (APA) which form part of our professional development pathways for academic staff within the Trent Institute of Learning and Teaching (TILT). This role specifically focuses on analysing the needs of participants entering our courses and the successful submission of the End Point Assessment.
Social Mobility. Personalisation of learning. Digital Curriculum. Internationalisation. Disciplinary approaches to informed quality teaching. These are just some of our strategic and SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) priorities for the academic practice team, and you will play a major role in helping us achieve them. You will do this by collaborative working, planning, and assisting in delivering the courses. This will see you working closely with our Flex team, who lead the development of staff wanting to employ new technologies in their teaching.
To join us, you will come with experience of planning, preparation, and teaching and assessment of learning – particularly in response to institutional learning and teaching priorities. You will also bring a working knowledge of current and emerging higher education context, policy, and practice. You will have a working knowledge and understanding of HE academic and quality-related issues and processes. You will be an effective networker who can build positive relationships both within and outside the University. With a relevant postgraduate qualification in teaching and learning in HE (and a level of HEA Fellow professional recognition), you will have a history of designing, delivering, and facilitating teaching, learning and development initiatives. That way, we can develop our academic staff, and better prepare them for a future of inspiring tomorrow’s greatest minds.
We are proud of how far we have come. Help us to go even further www.ntu.ac.uk.
