Scope: 0,8 fte
Work location: Vlissingen

Being a lecturer isn't something you do, it's who you are
Being a lecturer goes beyond just passing on knowledge. As a enthusiastic lecturer you will coach the students towards success. Are you a digitally savvy colleague with a can-do attitude and strong personal leadership skills? Are you the person committed to take the dive and bring your palette of skills and knowledge? Then join the team and feel welcome to guide our students’ journeys.

Your work as lecturer of English
Our English taught Tourism Management program has been successfully innovated over the last three years. Our culture of innovating the industry in a responsible, purpose driven manner is embraced throughout our entire community of practice. We focus strongly on creating a feeling of being welcome (hostmanship), creating experience, motivating change and like to see our students as pioneers. Students can enrol and graduate from the two year Associate Degree or the four year Bachelor Degree.

As lecturer, you are part of a small, open, ambitious, self-organizing, international team with a nice atmosphere. To train students to become pioneering, innovative and driven professionals you'll use your knowledge, skills and enthusiasm. You accomplish that by:

  • teaching within your field of expertise in integrated modules;
  • guiding and coaching students in their study career, internships and graduation;
  • contributing to the organisation and development of the various programmes;
  • actively participating in various student-centred projects and responsibilities.
