Job Description below
The University of Hull Business School is seeking to appoint an academic to
lead the Delivering People Analytics: predictive modelling, text mining and
data visualisation module, which will teach students the steps to be taken
to deliver a people analytics project efficiently and effectively. It is
focused on more practical and technical aspects concerning the choice of
variables to be investigated and what methods, instruments and algorithms
should be selected to deliver a PA project.
The University delivers an online portfolio of Master's degree programmes
under the brand name Hull Online. These programmes are delivered in
association with a collaborative partner, Cambridge Education Group Digital
(CEGD), who assists with recruitment, marketing, course design and course
There are currently eight programmes in the online portfolio and the
University has ambitious plans to add several more.
All programmes are taught on a flexible, part-time basis over two years within
a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Students can study the same
degree as they would on campus without interrupting income and career
Programmes are delivered wholly online with students having the option of
attending annual/ biannual face-to-face events either at the University campus
or at industry events in Europe.
The post-holder will initially develop content for the module (0.4 FTE for 6
months) and then act as module leader when the module is live in delivery
(0.2 FTE once a year for 15 weeks, May to August)
Design and development of the academic content will be undertaken in
partnership with a Learning Designer (LD) from CEG to translate academic
material into the Canvas VLE.
The Module Leader, who does not have to be based in Hull, will have
overall responsibility for the delivery and academic direction of the module,
managing Online Tutors who do the day-to-day teaching of the course. Tutors
can be located anywhere in the world.
Module leading will involve high-level academic input to steer the module
through its course, intervening to clarify major points, requesting any
required adjustments to course content within the VLE and summarising topics.
It will also involve ensuring that Online Tutors grade work (as first
marker) in a timely manner and the module leader then will second mark or
moderate assessments, in accordance with University guidelines.
The successful candidate will demonstrate:
A PhD in a related area
Excellence in teaching at Master's level or above from peer review, from
student assessment/feedback, from examination results, from external
examiner reports and from teaching awards
