You will be knowledgeable in the theories and histories of art and design and have an understanding of research-informed and reflective practice.

You will be able to demonstrate your skills as an engaging, supportive and inclusive teacher and have the ability to deliver innovative and engaging digital and on-campus teaching sessions which are tailored to our postgraduate learners.
