University of Manchester

OFFICE OF THE ACADEMIC REGISTRAR
Teaching and Learning Support Unit


CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
Further Particulars
September 2001


Background Information

The University wishes to appoint a Curriculum Development Officer to
replace a current member of staff who is leaving. The new postholder
will join an established team of colleagues in the Curriculum Innovation
team that is part of the Teaching and Learning Support Unit (TLSU).

The University has a strong commitment to curriculum development and has
benefited from a close collaboration with UMIST in this work over the
last decade. Established initially as part of the Enterprise in Higher
Education Initiative in 1992, this partnership has been instrumental in
the introduction and development of personal development programmes,
career management modules tailored to Departmental needs, problem based
learning and a vibrant Student Enterprise programme. Another key aspect
of the University's commitment is a dedicated Curriculum Innovation
Fund, currently worth 100K p.a.

The aim of the TLSU (which is part of the Academic Registrar's Office)
is to support Faculties and Departments across the whole University in
all matters relating to learning and teaching. It comprises four groups
of staff concerned with:
Quality assurance and enhancement;
Curriculum innovation and development;
Distributed and on-line learning;
Continuing education and training for business and industry.

The Curriculum Innovation team is led by Dr Ray Wolfenden. Its other
current members, with their primary roles, are:
Catherine O'Connell: curriculum development (Catherine's post
                            is the subject of the present appointment);
Peter Kahn: professional development of teaching;
Colin Morgan: employability and skills in the curriculum;
Marcia Ody: student enterprise programme;
Veronique Rizzutto: secretarial support for the team.

Ray Wolfenden will be retiring as Head of the team at the end of July
2003. At that time new arrangements will be made for the leadership and
management of the team: however it is expected that the work of
curriculum innovation and development will continue, and that staff will
be retained subject to satisfactory performance.


Job Description

The purpose of this post is to assist the development of the curriculum
at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The main duties and responsibilities of the post include: -
To help implement the University's Learning and Teaching Strategy,
especially at Faculty level, by monitoring implementation of the Faculty
strategies and providing relevant information, support and advice;

To monitor, advise and support projects funded from the University's
Curriculum Innovation Fund and its Teaching and Learning Support Fund;

To manage a number of existing projects and initiatives concerned with
the implementation of Problem Based Learning and Personal and Academic
Development Programmes;

To facilitate and support the Teaching Research and Development
Network, and to help organise its annual symposium;

To manage a dissemination strategy for curriculum innovation and
development;

To contribute to the development of the University's Learning,
Teaching and Assessment strategy, and the strategy of Curriculum
Innovation;

To network extensively within the University, within UMIST as
appropriate, and elsewhere within HE;

To manage the work of other staff associated with curriculum
development and innovation, as necessary from time to time.

It should be noted that the established and preferred manner of working
in the Curriculum Innovation team, and in the TLSU and its associated
networks, is collegial and collaborative. The person appointed will be
expected to adopt this approach and to be positive and flexible in
fulfilling the duties and responsibilities of the post.


Person Specification

It is expected that the person appointed will:
Have at least a first degree (in any discipline), and experience and
qualifications enabling the postholder to gain credibility with senior
academic staff;
Have a successful record of managing curriculum development,
associated projects and the work of other staff;
Possess extensive experience and up-to-date knowledge of curriculum
innovation in higher education, both in the UK and overseas;
Be committed to participative, collegial and collaborative ways of
working;
Be a skilled communicator, both orally and in various written genres
(e.g. committee reports, newsletters, press releases etc.);
Be able to relate effectively to colleagues of different seniority and
background;
Be skilled in time and caseload management, and be able to work to
tight deadlines;
Be a self-starter who is equally adept at working individually and as
a member of a team;
Be computer literate, preferably with some web authoring skills.
Terms of Appointment

The post is a full-time appointment on the ALC Grade 3 salary scale
(27,273 to 32,215), commencing as soon as possible after 1st November
2001 and lasting until 31st July 2003 in the first instance. The
appointment may be renewed or extended thereafter, subject to
satisfactory performance. It is subject to the University's standard
terms and conditions of appointment for Administrative staff and is
superannuable.

http://www.intranet.man.ac.uk/rsd/tlsu/) and to view in particular the
pages relating to the University's Learning and Teaching Strategy and
the work of the Curriculum Innovation group. You are also welcome to
