Senior Lecturer in Academic Development (Academic Professional Development)

Sheffield Hallam University - Directorate of Learning Enhancement and Academic Development

Academic Professional Development

Fixed term for 12 months

Closing date 27/09/17 at 23:30

The directorate of Learning Enhancement and Development (LEAD) provides integrated support, expertise and guidance for teaching and learning enhancement, professional academic development, digital capability and quality assurance.

Now we are looking for an Academic Developer with experience, enthusiasm and creativity to support and develop the enhancement of teaching, learning and assessment across the University. You will have particular responsibility for academic CPD in support of strategic priorities such as retention, attainment, assessment and feedback.

This will involve designing and coordinating the delivery of core professional development activities as well as working in partnership with faculties and departments to support continuous practice development. You will also contribute to the delivery of the HEA-accredited TALENT framework for professional recognition.

You will have significant experience of designing and delivering academic development interventions, excellent pedagogical understanding and a thorough grasp of the UK Professional Standards Framework. You will also need to demonstrate a track record of effective cross-institutional working with stakeholder groups.

For non-EU applicants, we are unlikely to be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job (unless you are switching from a UK student visa), so you should only apply if you already have unrestricted permission to work in the UK.
