Academic Life – Education Futures
2 Posts, Full-time: 35 Hours per week
UWS is a modern 21st century University that dares to be different. At UWS, we aim to change lives, transform communities, and encourage enterprise, through outstanding, distinctive and progressive higher education. We actively engage with our students and staff and collaborate with our partners and stakeholders to make sure that all can "Dream, Believe and Achieve".
Education Futures is a Professional Service at UWS created to support the University to respond to the challenges and opportunities generated by advances in technology. As a modern and adaptable University, we have a unique opportunity to leverage these changes in a way that allows our graduates to, not just adapt, but to flourish, in this ever changing digital world. Education Futures do this by supporting academic staff to embed technology in learning and teaching, and to achieve this we are looking to recruit energetic, ambitious, and focused individuals, who are capable of driving the use of new technologies and approaches across the University.
These exciting roles are primarily to support Schools with the rapid (re-)design, development, and delivery of programmes, as the University moves to a, much more flexible, hybrid approach. This will involve supporting a significant increase in use of the online environment and related learning technology systems (e.g. Moodle, Office 365, Turnitin). The successful candidates will be dynamic individuals with experience in digital learning design, and excellent communication and organisational skills. They will readily embrace change, have a customer service ethos, and a genuine passion for continuous improvement.
