The Visiting Lecturer Scheme is now open for applications for 2022-2023 – key dates are below:
Application Deadline: 17:00 on 18th July 2022
Interviews will be held via TEAMS on 27th and 28th July 2022
Visiting Lecturers will begin in post in September 2022.
What will I do?
Visiting Lecturers will teach a minimum of 5 sessions at the University during the 12-month post. Sessions will include practical skills instructing, small group facilitation, and bedside teaching.
Who should apply?
We expect a highly competitive application process for the scheme recruiting high calibre trainees with a passion for education. To ensure trainees have adequate time to commit to the programme, completion of some or all of the MRCP diploma prior to starting the scheme is a desirable, but not essential application criterion. We hope to attract trainees interested in a career in medical education keen to further their existing knowledge, skills and experience.
What training will I receive?
Visiting Lecturers will receive bespoke training and mentorship from experienced educators within the School of Medicine. Sessions will be focussed on ensuring VLs develop their teaching skills through hands-on practice with peer and expert feedback to improve performance. VLs will receive feedback on their teaching practice over the period of the scheme. Training will include practical skills teaching, small group facilitation, lecturing, online delivery of teaching (hybrid), feedback, and assessment.
Is this a paid position?
There is no direct remuneration for the scheme. The VL programme is a valuable opportunity for formal training in and experience of student education. An honorary University contract entitles Visiting Lecturers to the use of UoL resources including the Library, CPD courses and online journal access.
Will I get a formal qualification from the scheme?
Visiting lecturers will be encouraged to apply for Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy during their post. VLs will receive certificates to confirm CPD received and formal feedback on their teaching performance which can be used as evidence for their ePortfolio.
How do I apply?
