University for the Creative Arts - Institute of Creativity and Innovation (ICI)

Location: Zhangzhou - China
Salary: £37,474 to £51,804
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 19th January 2023
Expires: 19th March 2023
Job Ref: 22-AAAA4431-0677-1

We are looking for creative design educators to join us at the Institute of Creativity and Innovation (ICI), a dual-degree institute founded by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and Xiamen University (XMU) in 2020.

Our department is a platform for environmental design that is establishing a distinctive approach to architectural and spatial design education. We emphasise active models of teaching and learning that synthesise analogue techniques with digital media. Our units are taught as project and problem-based studio learning: focusing on Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication. We provide students with a networked pedagogy across all our projects, engaging external communities and organisations, and share this mind-set with the wider community of designers.

As a Teaching Fellow/Senior Teaching Fellow you will be an active participant in the development and teaching of the BA(Hons) Environmental Design course at ICI, supporting students in studio-based learning using constructive and creative teaching methods. You will also participate in growing the scholarly profile at ICI by either contributing to ICI’s creativity and innovation research portfolio, ongoing professional practice output, or actively enhancing creative education at ICI and beyond.

You will focus on planning, preparing learning content and delivering units and classes. You will teach across different units with a range of learning objectives and varied design challenges for students. The teaching fellow participates as a facilitator and collaborator in the work and learning of students.

You will be based at Xiamen University’s Zhangzhou campus, which boasts a park-like environment, with mountains to the west, Amoy Bay to the north, and the South China Sea to the east. It is a short commute to Xiamen, the multicultural centre of South-East China.

You will hold a master’s degree or higher in Architecture, Interior Design, Spatial Design or similar, and must have at least two consecutive years of a teaching focused role in a relevant design field at higher education. A doctoral research degree is especially desirable for those seeking a Senior Teaching Fellow position. Those with experience of higher education teaching in the UK will be prioritised, but candidates with experience elsewhere and a constructive attitude toward learning new educational frameworks may also apply. A PGCert teaching degree and HEA fellowship is also desirable.

The role requires someone who can demonstrate resilience and initiative when faced with challenges. Problem solving is an essential skill and a reflective and adaptable approach to teaching is necessary. You will be active in participating with a multicultural and interdisciplinary team to implement the vision and direction of the course. Fluency in English is essential.

Interviews will be ongoing; this role will remain open until filled.
