Location: London, UK
The Graphic Communication Design Programme at Central Saint Martins, part of University of the Arts London, is expanding curriculum in the areas of interaction design and digital media. We are interested in meeting new potential Visiting Practitioners and Associate Lecturers in design, art, and technology, with a particular focus on visual communication.
Our values are: creative ambition; technical agility; conceptual integrity; formal quality. We are not interested in drip feed software training, uncritical techno-fetishism, or trend chasing. We are very open-minded though and would like to meet new staff that can contribute something unique to a developing vision.
In the first instance, we plan on offering a variety of workshops and other short duration teaching and learning activities during the 2013-14 academic year. We are interested in hearing proposals that relate to interaction and digital media in their most expanded sense. Themes could include, but are not limited to: creative coding; responsive design; design for networks; data and information; locative media; hybrid media; participatory media; mobility and embedded media; the future of reading and writing; ux design; open source and collaboration; game design; interaction.
How to apply:
Please write to Dr Rebecca Ross <firstname.lastname@example.org> and include a current CV as PDF highlighting practice and any existing teaching or workshop delivery experience (if you have any, none required); a URL for your studio/office/freelance practice; and a covering e-mail addressing each of the following with a few sentences:
- What is your take on the role of Higher Education in relation to design, art, technology practice?
- What could you bring to working with students?
- What kind of workshop or other activity in particular do you propose to run?
Please contact us by 5pm on 21st October. We will be looking to schedule meetings for 23rd-25th October. We are also happy to discuss options with applicants based outside of London by Skype (though you need to be eligible to work in the UK/EU).
