  • Full time, continuing
  • Location independent - Can be based at La Trobe University’s Melbourne (Bundoora) or Victorian regional campuses.
  • $98,510 - $116,332 plus 17% superannuation

This position is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants only, as La Trobe University considers that being Aboriginal or a Torres Strait Islander is a genuine occupational requirement for the position under the 'special measures' of section 12 of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic).

La Trobe University’s success is driven by people who are committed to making a difference. They are creative and highly motivated, pursue new ideas and create knowledge. La Trobe is one of Australia’s research leaders, and the largest provider of higher education to regional Victoria.  Our teaching and research address some of the most significant issues of our time and we’re passionate about driving change through operational excellence to benefit the communities we serve.

 About the role

The School of Education has entered into a period of renewal and has adopted an ambitious strategic plan that is intended to reinvigorate the School’s research and coursework portfolio and connectivity with stakeholder groups and industry.

Our mission is to be an agile and vibrant School of Education that leads contemporary education debates and delivers leading research and evidence-based teaching responsive to professional educators. We are known for being current and flexible in a dynamic environment.

Teaching focused positions are critical to enhancing the student experience and the quality of learning and teaching at La Trobe. For staff, teaching focused appointments provide the flexibility to focus on learning and teaching for a defined period or to prioritise learning and teaching and the Scholarship of Learning and Teaching (SOLT) over the more traditional teaching and discipline research track as a career path. Teaching focused academics may contribute to teaching excellence and the student experience through a variety of teaching-related roles, including College or School leadership in learning and teaching; course leadership and curriculum development roles; and the management, development and mentoring of a teaching team.

The position holder will be an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person with experience and scholarship in Early Childhood Education and Indigenous Education. A strong understanding and demonstrated experience in developing curriculum and learning and teaching opportunities in Indigenous perspectives and Indigenous knowledges is essential. The position holder will have a track record of scholarship of teaching in Early Childhood Education and Indigenous Education. The position holder will have strong links with Indigenous communities and Early Childhood stakeholders to inform teaching and partnership collaborations.

The position holder will be required to undertake travel to other La Trobe University campuses.

  • Masters degree or PhD degree or equivalent accreditation and standing recognised by the University/profession as appropriate for the relevant discipline areas.
  • Demonstrated familiarity, sensitivity and respect for the diverse needs, aspirations and cultures of Indigenous societies
  • Demonstrated ability to maintain currency of knowledge in one or more areas of education specialisation, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges, curriculum design, assessment, technology-enhanced learning, and practically apply learning theory to academic support.
  • Demonstrated effectiveness in teaching, curriculum development and subject coordination in face-to-face, blended and/or online modes, as evidenced by sustained high results on student feedback on teaching surveys, teaching excellence awards or through other forms of evidence.
