To undertake teaching activities to support the teaching and learning activities in the Centre for Environmental Policy. The CEP’s long-running course “MSc in Environmental Technology” provides the highest standard of knowledge and skills development for environmental and sustainability specialists. Through the course students acquire a diverse range of discipline-specific problem-solving frameworks for tackling contemporary environmental and sustainability issues. A major emphasis of the course is on the way that environments function and on the compatible tools, alternative technologies and policies for sustainable management.
You will primarily be responsible for co-convening, teaching and learning activities on the “Business and the Environment” Option (B&E) of the MSc in Environmental Technology with the existing convenor (Mike Tennant). You will also teach across our other specialist Options, as appropriate, and help develop new education programmes as part of wider department strategy.
Your experience should complement that of the current convenor with a preferred focus related to sustainable innovation practice or policy.
The Business and the Environment Option (B&E)
The focus of B&E is to develop student’s interest and expertise in topics related to sustainable business practice. Two themes that shape the teaching and learning are: understanding how contemporary businesses tackle sustainability challenges through exposure to best practice and thinking; and to understand how businesses could create positive sustainable impact, delivered through an innovation and entrepreneurship module.
