A Term Adjunct position is open at the Smith School of Business for an instructor to teach at our main campus in a lecture-style graduate course in the Master of Business Administration program. The position is to teach the Digital Execution course, MBAS 842, which is an elective subject taught during the summer term. Teaching the Digital Execution course will generally include teaching six "three-hour" sessions in August 2021. Case studies and experiential learning should generally be conducted within these sessions. The successful applicant will be required to teach 100% of one (1) section of MBAS 842 with an anticipated enrollment of approximately 40 students.

Qualifications

Qualifications include: a Master’s degree or Ph.D., several years of familiarity and experience in digital projects and initiatives, and experience teaching university courses.

The course is described as follows:

This course will provide students with a conceptual overview of the basics of human-computer interaction and how organizations are using prototyping and experimentation to implement digital projects and initiatives. It is expected that cases and real-world examples be used to help students explore opportunities and challenges in digital execution. Beyond conceptual content, the course offers students an experiential learning opportunity (e.g., wireframing, creating a low or no-code mockup) in applying HCI principles, prototyping, experimentation, and evaluation. Students will learn how to review their solution with potential users, analyze feedback and update/validate their digital solution.

On completion of this course, a student should be proficient in a structured way of thinking about modern methods in technology implementation. This material is an essential skill set in the FT MBA Digital Business Specialization.
