Coventry University has seen huge global successes in recent years: Times Higher Education University of the Year 2015, The Good University Guides’ Modern University of the Year 2016, and now the 12th best University in The Guardian University Guide 2018. We have also achieved the top accolade in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), published in June by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

It doesn’t stop here. Coventry University is taking its next big step, this time into the digital world of online distance learning. Working with UK-based FutureLearn, which has over six million learners worldwide on its collaborative learning platform, the University is planning to launch its first Master’s programmes in early 2018. The roll out of 50 online degrees over the next five years will deliver world-leading programmes, accessible to thousands of new distance learners across the globe.

The creation of supporting infrastructure within a new, dynamic and innovative business will be pivotal in helping the University Group design, develop and support wholly online distance learning courses at both pace and scale, truly pushing the boundaries to establish a broad portfolio of degree courses with a distinct style and pedagogy. A challenge of equal transformation and reward for ambitious and determined professionals, this is both a sector and UK first; a thrilling time to join a start-up unlike any other; an opportunity to shape the future of Higher Education.

As a key member of Coventry University Online, a recently established company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the University Group, the Associate Lecturer will be part of the Tutor Services Team and will be responsible for quality driven learning facilitation on a module based system to a cohort of students through the FutureLearn platform.

A subject expert, the Associate Lecturer will have expertise in teaching business related subjects at postgraduate level. The post holder will be comfortable using technology to enable effective support to large cohorts of students at distance, utilizing the FutureLearn platform, this will include ‘live’ sessions, forums and dealing with specific queries and questions through email. The Associate Lecturer will have responsibility for, with the support of Module Leaders, preparation and delivery of learning support to individuals and/or groups, to mark coursework, assignments, projects and examinations. The ability to deliver clear feedback on exercises and assignments is essential as well as ensuring that teaching challenges thinking, fosters debate and develops the ability of the students to engage in critical discourse and rational thinking.

This post is a thrilling opportunity for an experienced Lecturer to deliver learning support in an exciting and new mode of study to a wealth of students from a global community. If this sounds like you, we would like to hear from you.
