Applications are invited for a full-time, ongoing Senior Tutor position in Digital Media Production in the Media Studies programme of the School of English and Media Studies at Massey University. We are looking for a candidate with proven expertise in multiple forms of Media Production and a passion for helping students develop their own skills in this area. This position is based at the Wellington campus in New Zealand.
The School of English and Media Studies has a strong record in teaching excellence and pastoral care in an interactive learning environment. Courses are taught in internal and distance learning modes (including online delivery), at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The School currently offers programmes in English, Media Studies, Creative Writing, Expressive Arts, Public and Professional Writing, and Theatre Studies.
We are looking for a candidate with strong technical and pedagogical skills to assist in the planning and delivery of courses involving digital media production. All applications will be carefully considered, but we particularly encourage applicants with media production skills, industry experience and/or experience in University-level teaching and curriculum development. An ability to contribute to both web-based media production and film/video-production may be an advantage.
The successful applicant will have a Masters-level qualification (such as an MA or MFA) either completed or very near to completion at the time of application. A strong commitment to teaching, pastoral care of students and a professional and team-orientated attitude is essential.
Media Studies is offered as a major in both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Communication. The undergraduate programme in both degrees currently includes courses across three major areas of specialisation: digital media production, social/cultural approaches to media, and medium-specific approaches/methodologies.
It is anticipated that the selected candidate will take up the appointment in July 2018. However, a later starting date will be considered by negotiation. Inquiries should be directed to Associate Professor Jenny Lawn (firstname.lastname@example.org), School of English and Media Studies, Massey University.
