Part-time Lecturer Information Design and Data Visualization (IDDV)

About the Opportunity


The Information Design and Data Visualization (IDDV) graduate programs combine analytical methods with visual communication. Graduates gain expertise in the visual and technological languages of data, applying modes of visual cognition and using analytics tools to create interactive, data-driven communications, and installations. These interdisciplinary programs prepare graduates to collaborate across a variety of fields and settings, bridging technology, public communication, and design, as well as to harness visual languages to investigate and communicate relevant issues.


The IDDV Part-Time Lecturer will teach introductory and intermediate courses in information design, data visualization, and visual communication history. Other courses could focus on teaching methods and principles to visualize qualitative and quantitative data, visualization technologies, data storytelling, or visual cognition for designers. Additionally, there may be requests to instruct other graduate courses related to these topics as determined by enrollment, funding and departmental needs. Starting Dates: January, and September.


The ideal candidate will have an MFA or equivalent terminal degree. Have at least two years of successful college teaching experience, or at least five years of professional practice experience in information design or data visualization practices. Candidates should have active careers with current exhibition, publication, or creative practice and course related experience. Candidates must have the ability to effectively engage Northeastern students at course relevant levels of study, whether beginning, intermediate or advanced.
