Arts Teaching Innovation, Teaching and Learning Portfolio
Faculty of Arts

Salary: $69,148 - $93,830 p.a. plus 17% superannuation

In 2018 the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne will establish Arts Teaching Innovation (ATI) as a specialist team of teaching and learning practitioners who will provide pedagogical support to academic staff who are engaged in undergraduate and graduate teaching within the Faculty across its five schools.

In light of this initiative, the Faculty of Arts will be appointing five Curriculum Designers (Level A) who will work alongside specialists in fields such as Object-Based Learning and Work-Integrated Learning as part of the ATI team. These will be continuing positions and build on the work of the previous, fixed term Senior Tutor (Curriculum Design) roles.

Working under the broad direction of the Associate Dean, Teaching and Learning in the Faculty, the Curriculum Designers will play a significant role in supporting curriculum development design, delivery, research and evaluation.  The position/s will be responsible for advancing the effective use of innovative and engaging learning approaches and draw on design principles aligned with the overall strategic Learning and Teaching direction of Faculty.

The Curriculum Designers will contribute to teaching excellence within and across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences by supporting academic staff in the design, preparation and review of teaching programs and subjects. This support will require close collaboration with academic program and subject co-ordinators as well as the planning, delivery and evaluation of professional development for all teaching staff in the Faculty. The incumbents will also be expected to contribute to the production of publications and research projects relating to teaching pedagogies in the humanities, social sciences and languages.  The Curriculum Designers will receive ongoing mentoring and opportunities for professional development.

The successful applicants will be committed and engaging educators, with experience of teaching a diverse cohort of students in one or more humanities, social sciences and/or languages disciplines using innovative, research-based teaching pedagogies. They will have an appreciation of broad discipline subject areas and the capacity to undertake individual and collaborative projects congruent with the direction of the discipline/s.
