Lecturer in professional communication – 90% (m/f/x)
Karel De Grote Hogeschool | Antwerpen | Deeltijds
Would you like to share your communication expertise and your business experience with our students in Applied Information Technology and motivate them to sharpen their communication skills in both Dutch and English? Then be sure to read on!
Within the Applied Information Technology study programme we train students to become developers, data engineers, IT project managers or system and network administrators. We strongly believe in an educational model that starts from a coaching role, rather than from a role as a ‘teacher’.
What is your role?
As a lecturer you build on the personal development of our students: from student to passionate IT professional. You do this on the basis of constructive feedback, personal coaching and assessments. Together with your colleagues you develop new content and work methods, so that you can always provide your students with high-quality study programmes, based on the changes within our society.
What do you actually do?
- You stimulate the students to communicate in a professional manner with the various target groups (internal and external customers, suppliers, managers, etc.). According to the standards and practices of the IT sector, both in Dutch and in English
- You use the classes to teach and sharpen the skills in English and in Dutch, while students independently learn the required professional terminology and study the grammar in greater depth.
- The first year is built around a visit to a company. The student plans, makes arrangements and carries them out. In the meantime, you will refresh skills, attitudes, vocabulary and grammar in Dutch and English, among other things by role play and writing a report. At the end of the course the student gives a presentation on the visit to the company in the different languages.
- In the second year you focus on working together in a team in developing a product. Students meet, manage their project according to the SCRUM methodology and give presentations and demonstrations for a group of stakeholders. In addition, you will practise business-related skills and attitudes with the students.
Who are you?
- A hands-on person preferably with an affinity for the IT sector and an excellent knowledge of Dutch and English. You approach a language in a practical way and can translate your experience in a way tailored to the students.
- A motivator who can deal with diversity in a class group in an inclusive way and who is able to make students push their boundaries.
- A team player who likes to learn from other perspectives, inspires colleagues and so ensures that one and one makes three.
You also have a master’s degree in a language discipline (option English and possibly Dutch) or similar.
- A warm welcome in a teaching team of colleagues with diverse backgrounds, but all with the same goal: to help students develop their career path and make their dreams come true! They are also ready to offer you the necessary help right from the time you start. As a new lecturer you can also expect teaching and educational support.
- In addition to a welcome day held throughout KdG on 6 September where you will get to know KdG better as an organisation, you will also have the chance to make use of a wide range of internal and external training.
- An environment where diversity and inclusion are central and where we encourage everyone to become the best version of themselves. We strongly believe in the power of differences and complementarity.
- A 90% appointment as a contracted employee with long-term prospects. You start on 1 September on a one-year contract, with the intention of extending it after a positive assessment. This appointment can be combined with other vacancies within Applied Information Technology.
- As holder of a bachelor’s degree, you will receive a salary based on the Lecturer Salary Scale 316 and, as holder of a master’s degree, you will receive a salary based on the Lecturer Salary Scale 502.
