Senior Lecturer in Higher Education Innovation and Development

St George's, University of London - Institute of Medical and Biomedical Education

This new exciting post fully supports St. George’s University of London’s ambitious Strategic Plan (2017-2022) to improve health through inspiring education and focused research. We are looking for an engaged and engaging educationalist and academic developer with a strong scholarly profile accompanied by a consolidated set of administrative and learning technology-related skills.

You will be joining a small team of educationalists in the recently-formed Centre for Innovation and Development of Education (CIDE). The Centre has multiple functions and covers a range of activities from student to educational development. This post mainly lies in the latter domain for the fulfilment of a number of exciting roles that are aligned with the University’s drive to improve education at all levels (undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses). If successful, you will contribute mainly to two sets of activities: firstly, assisting academics in curriculum design and planning so that new courses and programmes are innovative and forward-looking; secondly, playing a major role, with the Centre’s Head, in the design and delivery of a new CED-led MA, for which you will eventually have managerial responsibility. The course will be blended in nature and make use of both MOOCs, and blended-learning activities. For this reason, competence in using virtual environments (preferably Canvas) and creating online resources is key to the post. In addition to this, you will work collaboratively on all aspects of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education and St. George’s Continuous Professional Development Scheme (SHINE). Additionally, you will play a role in the growth of educational scholarly and research activities, both with your immediate colleagues in the Centre and the wider University’s community.

CIDE is a recent addition to the University but it is very dynamic and forward-looking, underpinned by a very strong collaborative ethos for the good of the student and patient experience, and the institution as a whole. You will play an important role not only in the Centre’s activities but also in consolidating its collaborative ethos in the multiple encounters you will have with medics, bio-medics, scientists, health and other professionals in the University, including those working for the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education which St. George’s shares with Kingston University.
