The Department of Languages, Cultures & Film wishes to appoint a Lecturer (Teaching & Scholarship) in Spanish to maintain and enhance our successful and innovative delivery of Spanish language teaching at undergraduate level and to contribute to ongoing departmental and School initiatives in language teaching and learning that form part of a wider Liverpool Languages Strategy. An increasing use of blended learning and technology-enhanced teaching methods are just two of the characteristic features of our current departmental initiatives, as well as the enhanced use of authentic assessment. Within Iberian and Latin American Studies, there is clear emphasis on developing the curriculum with a keen awareness of the importance of drawing on the rich and varied cultures and linguistic features of the areas in which Spanish is spoken.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the delivery and assessment of Spanish language teaching at all undergraduate levels and at postgraduate taught level. Active engagement with scholarship in the field of language pedagogy is expected, as is the demonstration of leadership in high-quality teaching innovations and the development of outreach opportunities. While language teaching remains the absolute priority, there may be some opportunities to contribute more widely to the curriculum in Hispanic Studies and in Modern Languages.
Tenure: Permanent commencing 1 January 2022
The successful candidate will have native or C2 proficiency in Spanish language, hold a relevant postgraduate or professional qualification in a discipline directly relevant to language teaching and will be aware of the latest developments in language teaching methodologies. Experience of teaching Spanish language at undergraduate level in a Higher Education Institution is essential, as is experience of module design, delivery and assessment. We are particularly keen to receive applications from candidates with experience of devising and delivering module components in interpreting and/or translation, as well as experience in methods of authentic assessment.
The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received.
