The University of Roehampton is seeking to appoint Visiting Lecturer to teach our BA in Politics and International Relations degree, specifically the first-year modules ‘Introduction to Political Studies and Skills’ and ‘Contemporary British Politics’. The appointment/s will involve leading and delivering modules and may also involve contributing to student project supervision and pastoral care.
We encourage a blended learning approach to teaching, combining traditional lectures, seminars, practical sessions, and student-led discussions in our teaching approaches. We ensure our curriculum supports good student outcomes through engagement with employability and skill-led experiential learning. We also support students by providing activities and material that extend beyond scheduled contact time. There are currently established resources for the majority of teaching to be covered.
Successful applicants will have experience in many of the blended teaching approaches listed above, as well as with supporting students, and marking assessments, at an undergraduate level. Industry experience is desirable as is experience with online learning environments. We are seeking individuals who are: student focused; demonstrate excellent interpersonal and analytical skills; and can work flexibly.
We are looking to appoint to start in September 2023, and will interview as we receive applications. Thus, please do not wait to apply if interested in the position.
The rate of pay for Visiting Lecturers is £55 per hour. This rate includes: contact time, preparation, marking, and annual leave. Additional marking and moderation and content development is paid at the rate of £25.96 per hour. When required this will be agreed in advance by a Dean or Deputy Dean.
