The Manchester Leadership Programme is looking to recruit eTutors of any discipline from the University of Manchester PhD student community to support the delivery of its academic course units. The MLP is a university-wide programme which helps students to explore sustainable and ethical leadership and to engage with the community. The programme is made up of 10 and 20 credit-rated ‘Leadership in Action’ academic units, and up to 60 hours of accredited volunteering. Vacancies are available for Semester 1 and Semester 2.
eTutors are responsible for tutoring a group of approximately 25 undergraduate students on an academic unit, leading online discussion groups, conducting face to face tutorials and assessing students’ work. An interest in leadership and/or sustainable development and a passion for working with students is essential. Ideally, you should have some experience of teaching undergraduates, an interest in elearning and an awareness of some of the issues associated with leadership, sustainability and community engagement. You should also be a postgraduate student, studying towards a PhD at the University of Manchester for the duration of the unit for which you are applying.
Working hours will average 5 hours per week for the semester in which you are tutoring – see Further Details for workload. Payment will be at the agreed Graduate Teaching Assistant rate (currently £14.29 per hour).
Further details, and the application form, are available to download from www.manchester.ac.uk/mlp/eTutors. The closing date for applications is 6 August at 12noon, and interviews will take place on 20,21 or 22 August 2012. If successful you will need to attend eTutor training to take place on either Monday September 3rd or Monday September 17th 2012. If you have not heard from us by Friday 17 August, you can assume that your application has not been successful.
