The UOC is looking to hire affiliated teaching staff for the Bachelor in Software Development ( academic year 2019/2020).
The Bachelor in Software Development is a new official 3-year undergraduate degree aimed at preparing the software developers of the future. It has a global audience: teaching is performed online through UOC’s virtual Campus and English is the language of instruction.
In an online learning environment, course instructors present, guide, plan, stimulate, focus, motivate, assess and tie together students' learning processes, with a proactive approach. It is the course instructor's job to provide teaching assistance to students (individually and collectively), monitoring their learning over the semester and proposing improvements to the course.
Course instructor must settle doubts, offer examples and additional explanations that make it easier for the student to understand the subject matter, stimulate debate, encourage participation in forums, correct assessment tests, provide feedback to help students' learning processes, etc.
In addition to these basic functions, those contracted as course instructors may perform other activities related with the preparation of learning resources.
Course instructor must log on to the Virtual Campus on a daily basis and must answer students in a maximum of 48 hours.
The course instructor's activity is coordinated by a member of the UOC's faculty.
Affiliated teaching staff need to have experience and currently be employed in their field. The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya needs professionals whose main professional activity is linked to the position they are applying for, enabling them to provide a quality service. Therefore, applicants must have a main professional activity that they will maintain alongside their work as affiliated teaching staff.
