We are looking for a multidisciplinary academic practitioner to develop and run an innovative new postgraduate course positioned at the intersection of design and media studies.
MA Communicating Complexity is a creatively-led communication design course in a world-leading graphic communication design programme. The course will foreground communication practice in the development of inclusive, accessible, and culturally resonant approaches to, and discourses around, contemporary global challenges. The starting point for the curriculum is to understand communication as deeply intertwined with complexity, and an increasingly vital skill in empowering responses to our most pressing and complex challenges—without resorting to simplification. The course is designed to be delivered in collaboration with a range of sectors and industries, and its Learning Outcomes refer to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The course is planned to be delivered in a low-residency mode of study.
You will be responsible for all aspects of MA Communicating Complexity including planning and delivery of academic units and assessments, overseeing high-quality curriculum, teaching, and feedback, coordinating the provision of pastoral and academic support, managing staff, participating in quality and enhancement processes, recruiting students, and developing the course’s external profile. During 2023, the incoming Course Leader will lead on delivery planning, the development of learning and teaching materials, and recruiting the initial cohort of students, who will begin their studies in late September.
This position is part-time (0.6), however we are offering applicants the option of a full time position by concurrently applying for the additional role of Senior Lecturer, Graphic Communication Design (0.4 FTE).
