The Learning Development team at Queen Mary University of London is seeking to appoint two Learning Development Advisors. This is an exciting opportunity to join a team with experience and expertise in collaborative working, particularly through the well-established Thinking Writing initiative (www.thinkingwriting.qmul.ac.uk) and through a focus on engagement, retention and success. These posts will work in partnership with academic Schools to enhance and develop successful teaching and learning strategies, as well as assessment, module and programme designs that make an impact on the quality of the student learning experience and academic success. We are looking for individuals with scholarly interests and practical experience in the following priority areas: writing development and textual analysis, educational practices in STEM subjects, and transition into HE. Other relevant areas of expertise are: postgraduate writing development, enquiry and work-based learning, and embedded approaches to developing disciplinary language and thinking.
Applicants should have up-to-date knowledge of key approaches and challenges in the sector around teaching and learning, widening participation, retention, and assessment and feedback. They should be able to collaborate confidently with disciplinary teachers at all levels, and to work independently and with initiative, as well as part of a small team.
Up to 1.5FTE Learning and Teaching Advisor posts are available, with flexibility possible depending on the balance of expertise across the team. These posts are permanent and based primarily at our Mile End campus. Starting salary will be in the range of £36,677 and £43,152 FTE per annum, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days of annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
We welcome applications from a diverse range of candidates. We would particularly encourage applications from BME groups as these groups are under-represented in our team.
