2 x Senior Lecturers Learning Transformations, Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor

Working at Western Sydney University means you’ll be part of an organisation that’s ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide and is a research leader – with 85% of the University’s research being at or above world standard.

We understand the key to your success is unlocking your true potential – just as we do with our students. Our 3,000 staff members work together to enable a dynamic, inclusive and innovative culture that is distinctly research-driven and student-centred.

The University is deeply embedded in the community and the region we serve, which is Australia’s fastest growing economy and one of the most culturally diverse areas in Australia. Our 10 campuses include a hybrid network of technology-infused vertical CBD campuses and more traditional campuses across Western Sydney.

We take pride in challenging the traditional notion of what a university ‘should’ be and are dedicated to ensuring our 45,000 students enjoy the best and most dynamic learning experience possible. From our forward-focused reworking of our teaching methodologies to connecting our learning hubs with industry, we are equipping our students with real-world learning experiences and future employment.

With more than 180,000 highly-respected alumni – including 20,000 working across 128 countries – we are ranked the highest university in NSW for graduate employer satisfaction. Join us as we shape the future of Western Sydney.

The Learning Futures portfolio is seeking two exceptional new academic colleagues with expertise in innovative academic development and curriculum leadership to join the team.

The full-time ongoing roles will provide institutional leadership and support for the development of transformative curriculum and learning experiences. In particular, we are seeking colleagues with expertise in one of more of the following: 
  • transition and retention pedagogies 
  • experiential and work integrated learning 
  • contemporary higher education curriculum architecture
  • teaching and learning analytics to complement our existing expertise.

The Learning Futures Portfolio comprises a network of teams with expertise in curriculum and pedagogy development, technology enhanced learning, learning support, and education for sustainability. It works closely with the Senior Executive, other groups in the Academic Division and with teams across the University to support the university community to innovate and excel in curriculum design and teaching in today's technology rich learning environments.

The new positions provide an opportunity to lead strategic curriculum initiatives that cross disciplines and realise new synergies between research, education, industry and our communities, to offer transformative educational opportunities for all students with the capability and desire to succeed.

This is an opportunity to join a vibrant young university as a key member of an energetic and creative team with strong leadership and a genuinely collaborative approach to research-led educational innovation.

Remuneration Package: Academic Level C $146,420 to $167,961 p.a. (comprising Salary of $123,852 to $142,263 p.a., plus Superannuation and Leave Loading)

Position Enquiries: Associate Professor Simon Bedford, Director, Learning Transformations (02) 9678 7178 or email s.bedford@westernsydney.edu.au

Closing Date: 8:30pm, Tuesday 24 September 2019
