Transforming engineering education: transforming lives
TEDI-London is an innovative new higher education institution in London wholly focused on engineering. It is co-founded by Arizona State University, King’s College London, and UNSW Sydney.
TEDI-London’s vision is to transform engineering education to transform lives – both for students and for the users of the products they design and make. Our mission is to attract and empower individuals and partners from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to develop the skills and confidence to create practical real-world solutions that advance how we live as a global community.
We will inspire, disrupt and transform.
TEDI-London will teach engineering differently. The curriculum will be unique in the UK, with total flexibility according to student needs. Students will be “professionals-in-training” and will be treated as professionals from day one. The programme will be split between project work, codesigned and delivered with support from employers, in which the students will make things and self-directed online learning through our Learning Tree. The projects will be supported by one-to-one mentoring and group work. The goal is to attract and empower a diverse cohort of capable students, give them the skills to solve complex contemporary challenges, and provide employers with job-ready graduates through a flexible, project-based, rigorous learning program.
We are now looking to grow our team with the appointment of a Deputy Dean. With responsibility for the curriculum and pedagogy, you will lead our academic activities, including professional accreditation, curriculum development, establishing effective learning outcomes and graduate attributes. A passionate academic educator with a desire to make a difference to the future of engineering education, you will continue to develop a curriculum framework which is project based, industry led and flexible, supported by an online learning hub.
First and foremost, you will need to demonstrate a genuine alignment with our ambitions and values. You should also offer experience of strategic and inspiring leadership, innovative and creative approaches to academic programme design and delivery and support an inclusive community across the new organisation.
This role is part of our executive team which has been established as a charity in the UK, operating out of London. It is an exciting time to join us and to take a significant lead in the shape and direction of our ambitions and activities.
