Educational Development Consultant (Humanities and Social Sciences)

University of Oxford - Oxford Learning Institute

This is a re-advertisement - previous applicants need not apply.

The Educational Development Group leads the Oxford Learning Institute’s provision of educational development in line with agreed institutional priorities for the enhancement of teaching and learning and in partnership with colleagues in academic divisions.

The post holder will report to the Head of Educational Development and will work closely and collaboratively with colleagues at the Oxford Learning Institute, as well as with colleagues across the University (Divisional Training Officers, Education Policy Support Office, Academic IT, Disability Advisory Service etc.)

You will deliver and support educational development and enhancement for the Humanities and Social Sciences Divisions at the University of Oxford. You will work closely with the Head of Educational Development and the Educational Development Consultant (Sciences) as the senior educational developers in the group. You will use your expertise to offer research-informed advice for the formation of educational policy; to offer consultancy to support educational development in the Humanities and Social Sciences Divisions; and to lead the accredited programme in teaching and learning for experienced teachers in the humanities and social sciences. You will line manage the Educational Development Officer (Humanities and Social Sciences), ensuring the provision of high-quality development opportunities for new teachers in these divisions.

Whilst the role is a Grade 9 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 8 (£39,992 - £47,722 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.

You will be asked to upload a CV and a supporting statement. The supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 8 January 2018. Interviews are anticipated to take place on Thursday 8 February 2017.

Please note that the University of Oxford's retirement policy has changed. With effect from 1 October 2017, all employees at Grade 8 and above have a retirement age of the 30 September before the 69th birthday. All employees at Grades 1-7 do not have a set retirement age.
