The Hull University Business School develops people and practices for a fast-changing and interconnected world. The school is an international community which, to echo our vision and mission, behaves with friendliness, openness, responsibility and integrity. The University delivers an online portfolio of master’s degree programmes under the brand name Hull Online. These programmes are delivered in association with a collaborative partner, Cambridge Education Group (CEG), who assists with recruitment, marketing, course design and course build. There are currently 6 programmes in the online portfolio and the University has ambitious plans to add several more. All programmes are taught on a flexible, part-time basis over two years within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Students can study the same degree as they would on campus without interrupting income and career progression. Programmes are delivered wholly online.
This post is for an academic to lead the Information Management and Visualisation module, which will introduce students to information management principles in the context of business decisions. The module places a lot of emphasis on information visualisation and visual thinking in the broader management sense. Case-based explorations will need to be developed to create hands-on opportunities to reflect on data principles and the key distinction between data and information. How can managers move from the different possibilities that data create in order to generate meaningful information in a business context? These explorations will be done through specialised software like Qlik or Tableau but no coding is required for students. Overall, the module is taking a management approach to information, reflecting critically on the value of data in business, understanding the impact of data, and exploring different forms of data visualisation for business decisions.
Applicants will have a sound knowledge of sophisticated qualitative and quantitative methods for decision making, with an emphasis in information visualisation and be familiar with Qlik or Tableau. The post-holder will initially develop content for the module (at 0.4 FTE for six months) and then act as module leader when the module is live in delivery (0.2 FTE for 15 weeks). Please note, as this is an online programme, candidates do not have to be based in Hull.
