The Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University seeks an adjunct instructor to teach diverse graduate students in the Master of Science in Public Policy & Management Washington DC track program. The program seeks to prepare diverse masters students for careers and impact in public policy, government, international development and management. Courses are taught at our campus in Washington DC. For the 2022-23 Academic Year, we seek candidates for the following course:

Data Visualization & Dashboards (Spring 2023)

This elective course, taught in person to second year Heinz College public policy graduate students in Washington DC, provides students with a formal grounding in data visualization as well as hands-on experience using Tableau, a popular modern software package.

This course is designed to introduce data visualization as an analytical tool, a medium of communication, and the basis for interactive information dashboards. Students will learn best practices in data visualization, sharpen analytical skills, and learn how to design dashboards for use by stakeholders.

Students will have the opportunity to practice skills with concrete deliverables, and will synthesize course material in a comprehensive final project. This project will reinforce comfort with the Tableau software package and will provide a portfolio item for students. Students will use Tableau as their main tool to visualize data and develop dashboards but will develop transferrable skills which can apply to many of the most popular software packages in the current marketplace.

The course is half semester (i.e. 7 weeks) in length, and is taught on one weekday evening (M, T, W or Th) from 6-8:50 at our Washington DC location. Adjunct instructors need to be available to develop, organize and deliver course materials and assessments, respond to inquiries, meet with students as needed, and provide timely and relevant feedback.

  • The instructor should be an accomplished, culturally responsive practitioner or academic with at least 2 plus years direct experience or research in the field with a strong understanding of data visualization concepts and direct experience using Tableau.
  • Recent experience in teaching graduate level or professional courses is preferred.
  • Master’s or PhD degree in relevant fields preferred
  • Experience in engagement with students
  • Demonstrated success in similar positions with positive references.
