Applicants are required to submit a current CV

The University delivers an online portfolio of Master’s degree programmes under the brand name Hull Online. These programmes are delivered in association with a collaborative partner, Cambridge Education Group Digital (CEG Digital), who assists with recruitment, marketing, course design and course build.   

There are currently 8 programmes in the online portfolio and the University has ambitious plans to add more in the near future.    

All programmes are taught on a flexible, part-time basis over two years within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Students can study the same degree as they would on campus without interrupting income and career progression.   

Programmes are delivered wholly online with students having the option of attending annual/ biannual face-to-face events either at the University campus or at industry events in Europe.   

This vacancy is for the role of Module Leader for our MA in Creative Writing at 0.2 FTE per module (fixed term).  The vacancy covers two modules: Writing the Short Story and Writing the Novel, which launch in January and May respectively, each running for one trimester. 

The Module Leader will have overall responsibility for the delivery and academic direction of the modules, managing Online Tutors who do the day-to-day teaching of the course. Tutors can be located anywhere in the world.    

Module leading will involve high-level academic input to steer the modules through their course, intervening to clarify major points, requesting any required adjustments to course content within the VLE and summarising topics. It will also involve ensuring that Online Tutors grade work (as first marker) in a timely manner and the Module Leader then will second mark or moderate assessments, in accordance with University guidelines.  

Please note that the academic content of modules has already been developed but must be revised and upgraded on an annual basis in accordance with the enhancement strategy. 

Skills, experience and qualification required  

  • At least a good Master’s degree in Creative Writing, preferably a PhD  
  • Evidence of a publication history in at least one form of Creative Writing (such as short story, or novel)  
  • Excellence in teaching at Master’s level or above from peer review, from student assessment/feedback, from examination results, from external examiner reports and from teaching awards    

To discuss this role informally, please contact Christopher Westoby, MA Creative Writing (Online) Programme Director, Hull Online, T 01482 465955, E c.d.westoby@hull.ac.uk
