Job Description

The Faculty of Environment would like to recruit a new Digital Education Academic Lead (DEAL) for the Faculty.

This role is for existing members of academic staff (teaching and scholarship or teaching and research) to contribute to leadership and development of our education programmes in the Faculty of Environment.

It is an exciting time to become the DEAL for the Faculty as we reflect on what we have learned during Covid-19 regarding digital learning and also consider different forms of blended learning that contribute to excellent experience and outcomes for all our students. We also are also actively developing fully online courses in partnership with different providers and for different learners globally.

The Faculty DEAL would work with the student education leadership in the four schools in the faculty, including with school level digital education leads as well as faculty leadership and the learning technologist team to further develop our digital and blended learning strategy and identify and oversee faculty specific projects. The Faculty DEALs would also work closely in a team with the DEALs from other faculties, and also the DEALs established at institutional level to support the University’s Digital Transformation strategy, in partnership with professional colleagues in the Digital Education Service.

The role of the digital education academic lead will be to support the implementation and realisation of this and new digital education strategies, at University level and within their local environment.

The role in the Faculty of Environment is open to academic members of staff employed within the Faculty. The appointment is on a 0.2 FTE basis and requires the agreement of the relevant Head of School. The successful candidate will be bought out on their existing grade and salary level.
