Warwick Online Learning Certificate: opportunity for online tutors

The application form for the WOLC online tutor roles has now closed. Thank you for taking the time to apply; we will be getting back to you very soon.

Overview

The Covid-19 global crisis has meant changes to all of our working lives. First year students at Warwick will no longer

receive face-to-face tuition in Term 3, but instead, will be invited to take part in an online module

designed to support their digital learning skills, as uncertainty remains about the return to campus.

This represents a unique opportunity for undergraduates to equip themselves with beneficial skills related

to study, digital literacy, careers, skills and employability as well as giving them the chance to work with

peers from other departments across the institution in a Warwick online learning experience.

The Warwick Online Learning Certificate is a module delivered principally through Moodle, but utilising a range of

Warwick learning technology tools. The module is divided into 5 key weeks of study on a variety of themes

(including digital and online behaviours, Warwick digital tools, employability) and culminating in a piece of

student reflection on skills developed. Most of the module is asynchronous and self-paced but weekly

themes will be released sequentially, from April and into May.

To enable this online module to be a success, we are seeking dedicated online tutors from the PhD and

postdoctoral community to support undergraduates as they undertake this work. This is an exciting

opportunity for early years’ researchers to further enhance and develop teaching skills, with the support

of experienced colleagues.
