Do you have exceptional skills in enabling students from diverse backgrounds to develop their capability for successful university-level study?  Are you able to demonstrate an aptitude for using creative pedagogy and digital technologies to support academic development?  Do you have educational experience in Biology based teaching?

The Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC) works with mature and part-time undergraduate and foundation-year learners across the University, especially where this enables participation of people from groups that are under-represented in higher education.  The international foundation year pathway programme provides students with a stimulating and supportive environment in which to acquire knowledge and skills for progression to a range of science degrees across the University.

You will contribute to the design and delivery of the Biology of Populations module on the International Foundation programme.  This module is designed to help students acquire and apply relevant practical and scientific skills including collecting and interpreting data and understanding how organisms interact with each other and their environment, both currently and historically.  You will cover preparation, student support, and marking as well as delivery of the module.  Further information is available in the module catalogue.

Tutors are appointed on a pro-rata basis of a full-time contract per semester.  Face to face class time is at most 3 hours per week on Friday mornings in Semester 2.  Tutors are unpaid members of the Centre’s staff when not actively teaching.
