The Department of Applied Psychology at Cardiff Metropolitan University is looking to make a number of strategic appointments to support planned changes to its undergraduate provision and to support and enhance its developing research and innovation portfolio.
In particular, we are looking to appoint someone who can help develop students' understanding of the importance of learning, skills development and how the role of education can be understood from a range of perspectives, including social, developmental and cognitive.
We are particularly interested in developing students' understanding of the role of individual differences in development across the lifespan. The successful candidate will play a key role in the management and development of psychometric resources particularly in developing students' digital skills through the understanding and measuring of individual differences using online tools. The post holder will demonstrate a firm commitment to all aspects of learning and teaching, especially being able to support students to develop their skills and confidence, in particular as a personal tutor to all levels of undergraduate provision.
The successful candidate will also be able to show how they will adopt a range of teaching and learning strategies to enhance students understanding of the topic and develop their digital literacy, through the use of blended learning.
The post holder will contribute to modules at all levels of the undergraduate programme, and will help supervise students on placements in forensic contexts, and will support and contribute to postgraduate provision.
The successful candidate will be supported in their teaching and research, and will have a developing research profile that is complementary to work within the department focusing on student engagement, widening participation, impact of bilingualism, and impact of education policy on outcomes.
