Vacation Teaching Development Assistantship Scheme 2016

Vacation Teaching Development Assistantship Scheme

Deadline Tues 3 May 2016

The University is funding up to six (full-time equivalent) Vacation Teaching Development Assistantships for the summer of 2016. This exciting new pilot scheme has been set up to assist in the development of new approaches to learning and teaching which embed the use of digital technologies at module and course level. The scheme is proposed to eliminate some of the barriers which staff experience in being able to plan or develop on-line/digital/blended, technology enhanced approaches to teaching and learning. UW staff are now invited to submit project applications for this scheme.

Support for projects will be available from the Learning and Teaching Technology Unit (LTTU) and details can be found within the scheme details. General enquiries about the scheme may be sent to Libby Symonds, LTTU (

The Assistantships will provide UW undergraduates and recent graduates with ‘hands on’ and valuable experience of collaborative working on an innovation project over the summer vacation, enabling them to contribute to the development of teaching and learning materials, as well as enhancing their CV.

Each Assistantship will carry a stipend (subject to tax and NI) which can only be used to fund the student’s salary costs. The Assistantship can be for a maximum of 4 weeks (subject to FTE; maximum total 148 hours at £8.30 per hour = £1,228.40 max, gross).

Please return your completed, signed application forms to Carolyn Nisbet ( by 9.00am on Tues 3 May 2016. Please note, application forms must be signed by your Head of Institute before submission, so please allow time for this.
