Ridley College is based in Melbourne, Australia and offers a range of diplomas and degrees through the Australian College of Theology. We are committed to academically rigorous theological training in the Evangelical tradition while engaging seriously with contemporary culture.
Ridley Online is our world-class online theological education and formation program. Units are offered in all subject areas: Bible and languages, Christian thought and history, and ministry and practice. The growth of the program has created the need for Online Tutors to manage classes, tutor students and grade assessment. Ridley teaches three semesters: February through June, July through November, November through February. There is an opportunity to teach multiple classes across the entire year.
Tutors will ensure that Ridley Online students receive the best possible guidance, engagement, support and feedback. We are seeking tutors who will work diligently, prayerfully and collegially to serve our students and equip them for Christian service.
Online tutors may be based anywhere in the world.
Training is provided and can be offered remotely.
Ridley online tutors are responsible for facilitating online student learning through:
- guiding students through supplied weekly learning activities;
- fostering online interaction, particularly through online seminars and forums;
- responding to (or redirecting) academic, administrative and pastoral queries;
- grading minor and major assessment items.
Hours will depend on the number of students in the class and the weighting of the subject. A standard class of 20 students would require around 7–8 hours per week over 13–15 weeks (including grading). In this example, remuneration would be AU$5,000.
