We are looking to recruit a number of experienced online and distance learning tutors, with the relevant academic qualifications and experience to support learners on our new portfolio of online LLM Master’s programmes due to be launched in January 2022, which includes the LLM, LLM Business Law and LLM International Law which aims to recruit over 200 students per year. Critical to the design of these programmes is a team of effective online learning facilitators, who will ensure the University of Lincoln’s excellent student experience and academic standards are maintained. 

Online Learning Facilitators will work with our Programme Leaders and Module Coordinators, supporting the students throughout each 8-week module, via the VLE. The role includes discussion board moderation and facilitation, academic and pastoral support, assessment, giving feedback, associated administrative duties and dissertation supervision. Additional departmental duties may also be available to suitable candidates.  There will also be opportunities for dissertation supervision. 

We are looking for experienced facilitators with subject expertise to work on the following modules: 

  • Corporate Governance; 
  • Environmental Law; 
  • Human Rights Law; 
  • Dispute Resolution Law; 
  • Jurisprudence and Legal Theory; 
  • International Economic and Investment Law; 
  • Advanced Law of Obligations; 
  • International Criminal Justice; 
  • Corporate Social Responsibility; 
  • International Business Law; 
  • International Law and World Order; 
  • EU External Relations Law

All positions are flexible to meet both your and our needs and are ideally suited to a portfolio career and expressions of interest are invited for work on these programmes on an ongoing basis. This is a remote-based, hourly paid role requiring excellent ICT skills and regularly, reliable internet access. 

New facilitators will be provided with full training and support in preparation for the role and will be expected to be available to support students 5 out of 7 days every week, including weekends, followed by quick marking turnaround periods and resits. Work will be allocated module-by modules, based on student numbers and your subject expertise and your workload may vary throughout the year.
