The University of Michigan School of Information (UMSI) seeks qualified individuals as Lecturer III to provide instruction in Python programming and data science skills and techniques to students in our new Master of Applied Data Science online degree and in our other academic programs. We expect the applicant to support courses, such as data manipulation, exploratory data analysis, data mining, and natural language processing. Students in the online degree program take four-week classes on the Coursera platform. You will act either as the instructor of record or work with the instructor of record and be the main instructional and student support, and participate in the continuous process of program improvement. You may be assigned course development responsibilities. Given the online degree program structure, there will be a variety of classes that change from month to month. Course assignments are made in advance giving teaching faculty ample time to prepare. You will work collaboratively with lead instructors, other instructional team members, and UMSI staff to ensure that students receive an excellent education and are aware of support services in the larger UM and UMSI communities. You will continuously learn about the courses and future offerings, the program, and effective online pedagogy.
