Tutor in Image, Music and Text

Do you have experience of interdisciplinary teaching? Are you able to support learners who are undertaking a transition into Higher Education (HE) with the development of academic skills for success in undergraduate study?

The Arts and Humanities Foundation Year programme is designed to equip students with knowledge and skills for progression to a range of degree programmes in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures.

You will help to deliver the module ‘Image, Music and Text’.  The module is a 20 credit compulsory module taught at Level 0.  It runs over two semesters, and it is scheduled in Semester 2 (January 2020-May 2020) with teaching timetabled on Tuesdays from 12pm to 1pm.  You will be responsible for leading 6 peer-reviewed creative workshops, tutorial support, and summative assessment in Semester 2.

‘Image, Music and Text’ gives an overview of how image, music and text can be used to create narrative and convey ideas, and considers the ways in which these three areas can interact.  Students develop a critical and creative awareness of this through a case study of their own choice.

Your role will be to help students develop a creative portfolio and a final creative outcome which focuses on a combination of two specific elements (out of Image, Music and Text).  The portfolio and the creative piece should be informed by relevant criticism and other examples of artworks.  The students have a range of options for their creative piece, including, but not limited to: film, photo-journal, podcast, website, comics, artwork, creative writing.  The portfolio and final creative outcome make up 60% of the total mark of the module.

Module teaching will consist of the leading of workshops where students peer-review each other’s work. The applicant must be able to guide and advise the students with a range of creative practices and processes.

Tutors are unpaid members of the Centre’s staff when not actively teaching.
