Role Title: Online Tutor

CEG Digital wishes to engage the services of an Online Tutor for their MA in Film Practice run in partnership with Arts University Bournemouth.
Online Tutors play a central role in the day-to-day success and vibrancy of the university’s online courses and are a consistent presence in the modules to which they are assigned and are usually the first point of contact for academic queries from students. Each Online Tutor will have a group of up to 30 students.
This is a flexible, part-time role and it is estimated that during a typical week, each student group may need approximately ten hours of online tutoring, although flexibility is required in order to accommodate busy periods such as assessment. Note that there will be key dates and contact points you will be required to adhere to which are driven by assessment dates in the course calendar. Full details will be provided prior to the start of the module.
The MA in Film Practice integrates filmmaking and theory through intensive online study. The degree offers students an opportunity to develop and realise their creative ambitions while exploring new filmmaking approaches in the context of an international learning community that foregrounds peer feedback and research driven experimentation.
Throughout the course, students are encouraged to apply their thinking through images and sounds in ways that respond to the contemporary world and challenge established mainstream modes of filmmaking. The experiences and knowledge that each student brings is central to the course as they actively expand their body of work during a series of structured creative projects, critical interrogation of practice and bespoke mentorship leading to the conceptualisation and manifestation of a final thesis project. Emerging from the course as reflective and committed practitioners, students will innovate in the evolving fields of film creation and exhibition.

We are looking for tutors to join the course team for 3 upcoming modules and invite applications from candidates with experience in any of the below:
The Positioning Practice module starting on May 29th, 2023. During this introductory module, students will position their practice, establish, or reinforce a critically informed grounding in filmmaking and develop a reflective journal practice. The module examines key disciplines and processes in filmmaking, situating them in relation to the creative industries and society more broadly. As research is an integral aspect of any creative process, the module will explore suitable methods of investigation, analysis and discourse that will help to frame and enable students to further understand their filmmaking within a critical context.
The Film Aesthetics module starting on May 29th, 2023. The module is research-orientated and focuses on developing the skills and knowledge necessary for analysing film as an art film. Students will explore questions of film aesthetics in relation to their practice including the style and form of moving imagery, history of creative techniques employed by filmmakers, philosophical perspectives, and their application to cinema as well as key debates and contemporary developments in film theory.
The Encountering Performance module starting on July 24th, 2023. This practice-orientated module explores issues around performance and cooperation in filmmaking. The module poses the questions what role do characters, subjects or collaborators perform in the filmmaker’s creative process? How does the filmmakers interact or share ideas with these people and what impact does their approach to communication have on the resulting performance?
