Based in Milton Keynes
Temporary Contract to 23 May 2018

Based in the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies at the Open University, the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics offers modules and qualifications in Modern Languages, English Language and Applied Linguistics, English for Academic Purposes, and Intercultural Communication.

You will contribute to the design and development of modules in French language and culture. You will work within teams to both support current modules and create new ones. Modern Languages modules at the Open University integrate the development of language skills, cultural knowledge, and intercultural communication competence, as well as generic and subject-specific academic, digital and professional skills. In French, we offer modules from beginners’ to degree level.

You must have experience of curriculum development and course design and excellent and demonstrable planning and organisational skills. You will be interested in making a contribution to our strong research and scholarship culture, share our commitment to high quality teaching and to the use of technology in teaching and learning. A PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline is essential. A level of proficiency equivalent to CEFR level C2 (mastery) in both English and French is required.

Closing date: 5.00pm on 16 May 2017
