The University Library offers student-facing learning development support across a wide range of areas, including academic writing, academic integrity, critical thinking, note-taking, revision and exam strategies, English for academic purposes, information literacy, digital skills, maths and statistics.
Tutors play a significant role in designing and teaching classes, workshops and one-to-one sessions to support the diverse needs of students across the range of disciplines covered by the University. Academic Skills Tutors work with students from all departments and across a range of levels, to provide support in developing academic skills and assessment literacy.
As this role focuses on writing and learning, knowledge of academic writing conventions and learning styles, ideally across a range of disciplines, is crucial. As Tutors will advise on using technology for learning, good IT skills and knowledge of technology enhanced learning is essential. Awareness of the challenges faced by students at various stages of their academic careers is also required, and candidates will ideally have prior experience of delivering learning development in a higher education context.
The role calls for excellent organisational and communication skills and the ability to work with a wide range of academic staff and students to support curriculum and learning needs. The ability to thrive in a busy teaching environment and willingness to work collegiately are critical to the role.
