The University of Bristol is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and proactive individual who has experience and understanding of academic study skills delivery, ideally within a further or higher education context. Using their background of sound pedagogical knowledge and practice in online and face-to-face delivery to students, the Academic Study Skills Coordinator will be responsible for contributing to the writing of academic study skills content and producing, designing and delivering skills training. Working closely with colleagues in Library Services, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), Bristol Students Union, students, academics and others, they will co-produce (with students) and coordinate a programme of skills resources, tutorials and workshops that will closely synchronise with the student educational cycle. They will be responsible for the guidance, training and supervision of Student Advocates who will carry out peer-to-peer skills support to students. The post- holder will generate student feedback for the purpose of evaluation and will write reports on formal sessions/workshops delivered.
The post-holder will be line-managed within the Library Service and will report to the University Academic Study Skills Developer, but will work in a matrix across student-facing Professional Services and academic leadership. An ability to engage and inspire students and to promote the value of academic study skills is essential to the success of this post. With a new University Strategy, it’s an exciting time to join Bristol and contribute to the excellence in education. The academic study skills pilot forms part of a wide-scale curriculum development initiative called Bristol Futures.
The post is fixed-term to 30 November 2018.
The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
