About the opportunity 

The Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Hub invites applicants for the position of Education-focused Lecturer in Work-Integrated Learning (Level B). 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. 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; Placement and Non-Placement WIL, Career and Employability Learning, preparation for WIL learning, employability and WIL strategy, graduate quality skills, business communications and professional identity formation, digital badging and education 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 450 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 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 thinking and teaching practice as part of a wider community of education-focused academics.
