The successful candidates will be expected to deliver a number of modules relevant to their expertise. Fellows will also be expected to have a central role in the design of future programmes, while Associates will deliver a range of established teaching modules. The teaching and learning environment within Strathclyde is rapidly evolving, including more use of online and technology enabled, as well as more traditional delivery, so experience of teaching in a variety of models would be welcome. You will need to demonstrate flexibility to adapt and innovate your approach to teaching and learning to embrace this evolution. Some overseas teaching may also be required on occasion.
