Job Description

Instructional Coordinators (ICs) bring professional-level industry experience in the specific content areas of the Master of Computer Information Systems (MCIS) program. This experience adds value and reinforces academic content to the students enrolled in the College’s online graduate programs. The College of Business online MCIS program follows a lecture-capture, distributed learning model. Under this framework, the role of the Instructional Coordinator is to work closely with lead faculty instructors to facilitate, extend, amplify and mediate course instruction with online students. By reinforcing and clarifying content, Instructional Coordinators monitor student performance in each course as it progresses. ICs collaborate with the lead faculty before the course begins by discussing course content, learning objectives, student participation, assignments, and grading metrics. This collaboration and communication between the faculty and the ICs is ongoing from 2-3 weeks before courses begin until the debrief session after the course ends. Instructional Coordinators allow the College of Business to extend the classroom experience to a large, diverse online audience. Serving along with lead faculty, Instructional Coordinators clarify and reinforce course content and extend theory to practice. ICs in the Master of Computer Information Systems Program oversee approximately 20-30 online students. They are the primary point of communication, grade assignments, are available via email, phone, or during virtual office hours to field questions, and recommend grades to the lead faculty. For our online students, this is a significant role, as it connects them to the program during a time when they might otherwise feel disconnected. ICs provide a valuable high-touch level of customer service to the student while allowing the lead faculty to focus on developing and delivering quality content to students. Instructional Coordinators provide a high level of student outreach and have the availability to frequently connect with students, academic advisors and team leads. They must be engaging, offering an increased and innovative presence in the online classroom to best serve the student and facilitate student success. Instructional Coordinators are expected to provide substantial student feedback and offer a quick turnaround on grades. Instructional Coordinators reflect department and institutional values, and they are expected to foster the college’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States by proposed start date. The College of Business will not sponsor a visa for these positions.
