Design Innovation - New Arts Discipline and Job Vacancy

Do you want to join us as we launch our new course developments in Innovation by Design? Are you able to inspire and support our students to become confident, capable, and impactful designerly change agents; working with diverse communities locally and internationally, to tackle significant design challenges with empathy, understanding and creativity? Do you have a vision for the application of new technologies? Can you support students to master new technologies and help others to utilise those technologies effectively?

As part of a University of Warwick Strategic Investment Funded initiative, the School for Cross-Faculty Studies is seeking applications for an Assistant Professor (Teaching-focussed) to support the development, launch and delivery of its new Innovation by Design course. The new interdisciplinary course will sit in the School for Cross-Faculty Studies, which is home to a range of the University’s inter- and transdisciplinary degrees. Currently, these comprise the undergraduate Liberal Arts and Global Sustainable Development (GSD) programmes and our recently launched postgraduate taught and research courses in GSD. All of our offerings are designed to be interactive learning experiences; placing our students as collaborators and co-creators in the classroom. Students take modules from other departments across the University. This enables them to benefit from different learning styles and perspectives and enriches their understanding of and responses to a range of contemporary global issues, allowing them to challenge and question solutions.

Accordingly, we are looking for an ambitious, forward-thinking academic who believes in the value of design thinking, problem-based, experiential and community-centred learning to develop, refine and generate the knowledge and skills required by our students to become ‘designerly change agents’.

As an Assistant Professor (Teaching-focused), you will use your knowledge of design thinking, research and practices, alongside your expertise in digital technologies and techniques, to create and deliver modules and courses that engage, enthuse and inspire students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. You will possess knowledge of a range of teaching, learning and assessment strategies which you will employ in the development of high-quality teaching material.

You will join a successful and collegial team of academics in the School delivering cutting-edge research, innovative inter- and transdisciplinary teaching and outstanding student support.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed colleague, who is an excellent teacher and communicator, with a sound subject knowledge and who is passionate about making every aspect of our students’ experience of learning relevant and valuable.
