NIHR e-Learning for Clinicians Module Lead (Self-employed consultant)
Contract type: Fixed contract for delivery of set activities
Location: Remote working (home based)
We have an exciting opportunity within our Education and Professional Development team for experienced researchers to provide consultancy services. The RPS is being funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to develop a series of bespoke e-learning modules with the purpose of developing research capability and capacity amongst Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians by Summer 2022. The resources are mainly intended for those who have not followed or are beginning an academic career path and/or who have little or no experience of research delivery.
As a Module Lead, with recognised research expertise, you would oversee the development of short 45-minute interactive module(s) in collaboration with the RPS team in line with the e-learning style guide. You would advise on appropriate and relevant content for the module as well as suggesting case studies as examples of research in practice. Our research team and e-learning partner will draft content and configure the materials into the module. You would have involvement in peer review of the module series to facilitate coherence, minimise risk of duplication and ensure content is appropriate for the target audience as well as the ongoing evaluation and review of the module.
You should be an experienced researcher with a clear understanding of different research methods and show an understanding of the research development needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. You must possess experience of designing or developing teaching or training materials.
The ability to manage your own schedule and workload, and complete activities within defined deadlines is also essential to the role.
