Location: United Kingdom, Work from home

The Organisation

Oxford International Digital Institute (OIDI) will deliver a number of university partnership programmes that enable students to progress to study at a UK university. All programmes are built upon pedagogies of task-based learning and communities of practice to engage students in a rich learning experience.

The Opportunity

OIDI is launching a new tutored Online International Foundation Programme (level 3) in Business, Applied Computing and Computer Science with a January 2022 start date. The programme will be delivered completely online using Moodle and various applications such as H5P in addition to live sessions delivered on Zoom. Students will progress to bachelor’s level study at a range of UK universities.

In order to support this programme we are looking to bring in teachers who are qualified in their specialism and have a strong student-centered approach to their delivery. Teaching will comprise of two key components: 1) the delivery of a number of live sessions each week via Zoom; 2) the support and feedback for directed (asynchronous) learning activities on Moodle across each week, such as forums, individual responses to tasks and to foster high levels of engagement.

In addition, there is also the expectation of teachers taking on the role of a Module Lead for a small number of modules. The main focus is to be the person who coordinates the assessment cycle and advises on the quality of specialist learning materials.

While many of the Moodle learning activities will have been developed, there will still be a need to develop more. In addition, learning materials for live Zoom sessions are likely to require development.

The post holder will be an experienced subject teacher, ideally with some online teaching experience.

Computing modules will include: Introduction to Computer Programming; Cyber Security and Digital Ethics; Principles of Artificial Intelligence; Computer Architecture; Web-Based Technologies and Digital Media
