Expressions of interest are invited from university graduates to work part-time as tutors in undergraduate English, Film, Theatre, and Media Studies courses for 2018.

Tutoring roles are characterised by the following set of basic conditions or expectations:

  • Tutorials are designed to provide: opportunities for small group discussion and interaction; learning support for course material and lectures; in-class advice as to the completion of assignments;
  • Tutorial teaching begins in the second week of trimester and involves approximately ten weeks of actual tutoring;
  • Tutorials generally comprise up to 20 students per class depending on enrolment numbers;
  • Tutorials (while their coverage may be directed by the Course Coordinators) are planned and resourced by individual class tutors;
  • In addition to preparing and running tutorials, a tutoring role involves a few hours each week for student consultation and additional hours during the trimester for the marking of student assignments;
  • Tutors are expected to attend regular meetings with the Course Coordinator during the trimester, and one end-of-course examiners' meeting, and possibly attend the lectures for courses on which they work.
