The Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Hub invites applicants for the position of Education-focused Lecturer in Work-Integrated Learning (Level B). Our WIL Hub is highly regarded and collegial. You will join a dynamic group teaching in WIL for undergraduate and postgraduate business students. Current research and teaching covers Local, International and Student-Self-Sourced Placements and Non-Placement WIL, short-term mobility, Career and Employability Learning, preparation for WIL learning, employability and WIL strategic work, graduate quality skill development, teaching and assessing business communications and professional identity formation, designing digital badging, virtual WIL education and using broader technology for scaling and expanding WIL. The WIL Hub consistently has its research rated as above world average in education ERA assessments.

The rapid change in the teaching landscape resulting from COVID adaptations has accelerated the School’s Business Not As Usual approach to learning and teaching. The WIL Hub teaches around 800 students each year and is seeking to further enhance the already excellent student outcomes, at scale, using technology as an enabler. The majority of your contribution will be within education, with a small proportion of workload available for research and wider service to the school and university community (up to 30%).  You will contribute significantly not only to the delivery of teaching, but also to leading the WIL Hub’s teaching practice as part of a wider community of education-focused academics.

Education-focused roles are a specialised category of academic engagement reserved for talented educators with a passion for, and demonstrated excellence in, pedagogical practice and design. The successful candidate will dedicate the majority (up to 70% – or by mutual agreement 80%) of their academic workload allocation to education and educational development.  We also highly value recognised expertise in higher education pedagogy, or the willingness to undertake additional development through for example completion of the Graduate Certificate in Education Studies (Higher Education) or comparable recognition (e.g. obtaining FHEA status).
