The University College ATLAS (ATLAS-UCT) together with the Philosophy Department at the University of Twente invites applicants for a combined junior Lecturer (40%) and PhD (60%) position. Are you passionate about education? Do you want to contribute, by both teaching and educational research, to the innovations that we are currently implementing in our interdisciplinary engineering and social science education? In this job, you will join a team of dedicated Lecturers, educational scientists, and philosophers of science.
Our mission is preparing students for the 21st Century in which technological and societal developments progress faster than knowledge of experts, which requires intellectual resilience and agility. The challenge is how to teach academic skills, such as creative, critical, and interdisciplinary thinking, needed in scientific research, design, and decision making. The project includes the design, execution, and evaluation of innovative ways to teach model-based-reasoning and interdisciplinary in challenge-based education.
As a Lecturer, you will take part in the design and execution of teaching modules in ATLAS-UCT. Your research project seeks to bring together theoretical insights and methodologies from both the education sciences and philosophy.
This project is a collaboration between ATLAS-UCT, the Department of Philosophy, the BMS research theme Learning (ILLUSTRATE), and the 4TU Centre for Engineering Education (4TU-CEE). You will be a member of the ATLAS-UCT team and the philosophy community in BMS.
University College Twente (est. 2013) is the international Honours College of the UT. Its Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences programme (ATLAS), aims to educate a new kind of engineer. The ATLAS engineer works on modern engineering solutions that require not only technical but also social perspectives and understanding.
