About the Role

This Senior Lecturer/Lecturer position will be at the forefront of learning intervention in Australia with evidence of a growing international profile and commitment to both tertiary teaching and research. The successful applicant will make effective contributions to teaching and learning, engagement, leadership and service within the Learning Intervention Team, which is part of the Learning Intervention Academic Group

You will contribute to and lead key scholarly and research projects undertaken by the Learning Intervention Team nationally and internationally. You will be involved with subject development, including the development of online pedagogies, subject coordination and course coordination. You will also contribute to graduate research student supervision and training and liaise with colleagues in educational psychology, the Centre for Wellbeing Science, and other academic groups within MGSE. You will have an active and impactful program of research activity, the proven ability to attract significant funding and a growing profile of research publications in quality journals.

In a typical week at work, you may:

  • Provide teaching expertise in the Master of Learning Intervention and Master of Teaching subjects in inclusive education, and more broadly across MGSE as needed

You will have the ability to undertake subject and course coordination duties and to conduct professional practice visits, as required.

Ideally, you will further have:

  • A doctoral degree in education or in a related discipline area and an established track record of publications in inclusive education, learning difficulties or disability
  • Successful recent and practical teaching experience in a range of school education settings (e.g., early intervention, primary schools, secondary schools, alternative contexts) with students who have learning difficulties and/or disability
  • Proven expertise in planning, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based learning interventions for students with learning difficulties and/or disability
  • Experience delivering high-quality teaching in higher education contexts, teaching online, and creating innovative online environments
