COURSE LEADER: BSc Creative Computer Science Courses

£39,324 to £46,924 plus Course Leader Allowance

Norwich University of the Arts is entering an exciting new phase of development with the launch of a suite of creative Bachelor of Science (BSc) awards in Games Development, Interaction Design and User Experience Design. These awards will complement existing provision in Design and Media and provide students with a strong technical and scientific grounding for their creative endeavours and future careers, with a curriculum that covers coding, research and design. To this end, the University is working closely with employers to ensure the courses meet industry expectations and future needs. The three courses will be developed under the leadership of a single Course Leader and will have a shared curriculum in the first year of study. Subject to validation, we anticipate recruiting our first cohort of students in September 2017.

We are now seeking to appoint a Course Leader with the drive, ambition, skills and experience to develop, promote and deliver these new awards. The successful candidate will have a background in computer science, possess a comprehensive knowledge of the technical and creative demands of the award disciplines, with an understanding of the software engineering, programming and mathematical skills required, together with specialist skills in at least one of the three areas. You will be able to bring your knowledge and experience of industry standards to the requirements for undergraduate study on BSc awards that are clearly focused on preparing students for professional employment.

The role is an opportunity to drive the implementation of Creative Science at NUA. Initially the post holder will assist in developing course documentation, leading the courses through external approval processes and working with the Marketing team to promote and recruit the first cohort of students.

The successful applicant will demonstrate excellent skills in organisation and management and a grasp of the key areas of learning and teaching as they relate to the awards. You will bring with you strong professional relationships with high-profile industry contacts. You will demonstrate an understanding of the current and future drivers for curriculum content and design with the flexibility to meet the change demands of employers.

Closing date: Thursday 4th May 2017
