Subject: TUTORS for 1st year uni subject in 'scientific literacy'
Science communicators,

Want to help develop the next generation of science graduates?

A local university is looking for TUTORS for a first-year subject in
'scientific literacy'.

The subject addresses the professional skills and insights that a
science graduate needs.  It provides a well conceived transition to
university study for students who may be the first in their family to
attend university.

We are looking for expressions of interest from individuals who have a
demonstrated capacity to tutor at the first-year level at university.
You would need to be experienced at working in a facilitation role,
rather than a presenting role.  A background in science (particularly
the life sciences) and insight into the mechanics of writing,
presenting, and teamwork are also required.

The commitment would be to facilitate at least two, 2-hour tutorials
per week for the period of March to June 2012.  Classes occur in
Parramatta, Campbelltown, and the Penrith area.  Additional planning,
training, and coordination meetings would occur in certain weeks.
Marking is also involved.

Please send expressions of interest to me by Tuesday, 3 January 2012.

An expression of interest is just that, not a commitment and not an

Also, please pass on word to friends and colleagues (or even enemies)
who might be interested.  Thanks.
