Griffith University engages in outstanding scholarship that makes a major contribution to society and produces groundbreaking research. It is deeply connected to its community, and values its place in it. The quality of research, innovative teaching and learning practices and strong ties to industry has led to Griffith being ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide.

Griffith is committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for students. In the 2018 QILT student survey, Griffith achieved 'above the national average' on all indicators for the undergraduate student experience, and grew more with 3% in graduate outcomes. With five campuses spanning the attractive South East Queensland region, as well as its digital campus, a comprehensive range of disciplines across its four Academic Groups and state-of-the-art infrastructure, Griffith has strong foundations underpinning its success.

The Pro Vice Chancellor Learning and Teaching is a member of the Office of the Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor (SDVC), and will work closely with the SDVC and other senior leaders to play a key role in the development and implementation of Griffith's strategic plan.

The portfolio of the Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor includes Academic Administration, Griffith Online, Learning Futures and Library and Learning Services. The Pro Vice Chancellor (Learning and Teaching) will work collaboratively within the Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor portfolio and with the Group Deans (Learning and Teaching) to implement key strategies relating to learning, teaching, assessment, the student experience, student equity, student retention and graduate outcomes, including employability.

As the learning preferences of students continually evolve, this role will contribute to development and implementation of innovative opportunities across the portfolio, including technology-enhanced learning.

Candidates will require a substantial academic track record, research outcomes and scholarship in a relevant field, and demonstrated effective senior leadership and management experience.
