We are looking for three Associate Lecturers to join the team, areas of Speciality and experience we are looking for are: 

Media Narratives – PM: This is a traditional Journalism module, looking at the multiple platforms used to cover news stories as they emerge. Exploring the progression of media narratives being communicated through the passive broadcasting of event with little or no interaction with audience, to complex transmedia narratives which spread across platform. 


 
Data Journalism – AM: This is a year three (Level 6) module which covers different techniques of investigating topics and methods of presenting information to audiences, often using specific software tools. Data journalism involves reporters finding newsworthy patterns within new or existing sources of data. This may require working with other agencies to access data sets or using specific software tools to gather data from online sources. This module will inform students about the journalistic potential of using these techniques, key processes and the tools used to manipulate and understand patterns that may be of interest to their audience.


 
Advanced Marketing and Communication – AM: This is a Level 6 module which covers advanced marketing and communications techniques. The media and creative industries are a vital part of local, regional, national and transnational economies, sometimes with global reach and influence. Students will build on knowledge and skills developed in L4 and L5 marketing modules in order to develop in-depth understanding of the theories, processes and practices of advanced marketing and media planning techniques in today’s industry.
Students will put tools, techniques and software into practice that marketing professionals use to build advanced marketing strategies for a multiplatform world. There will be a focus on measurement, data and technology-driven marketing practices as well as digital transformation of industries and businesses, both of which are driving significant change in the marketing and media industry today.
