Job Summary & Responsibilities
Students enrolled in the DCI are taught the majority of their classes in English, with the intention that they will study part of their degree in Paris on programmes taught by CNAM in English. The English Language Department is responsible for ensuring that the students are prepared for both the language and academic requirements of studying their major course of study (currently, mechanical engineering, software engineering, and communications engineering) in English, as well as preparing them to pass language examinations (CET/TOEIC). Our students study in small classes (a maximum of 25 students) and benefit from one-to-one tutorials with staff frequently throughout the academic year. As well as focusing on improving their listening, speaking, writing, and reading, we also work on English to prepare them for academic life (e.g. report writing, presenting, research skills) and on the language that they will require to study within their chosen discipline. All teaching materials are provided, which have been custom-written for the project, although we are always developing our courses and improving our programmes in response to student feedback and the strengths of our staff. You will be expected to teach 5-10 classes a week (class time is 1.5 hours), depending on requirements, while the remaining hours are free for curriculum development, research, preparing papers for publication, and tutorials. As DCI grows, we are interested in bringing a range of academic staff into our department – ranging from new lecturers who are looking for a place to start their career, through to more experienced staff who can contribute to the shape our department takes in the future. We are a new institute, so there is considerable opportunity for professional development and progression, while working in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We are currently seeking staff who would be available to start work on 1st September 2018 for a minimum of one year (contract is renewable, dependent on successful competition of annual performance review). Support will be provided in obtaining the relevant working Z-visa and in relocating to Dongguan. Early application is recommended to ensure there is sufficient time to prepare the necessary paperwork.
