Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Computer Science Faculty

At ALU, we aim to move away from conventional, lecture-based approach to teaching Computer Science. Our early efforts include forays into project-based learning and coding dojos. Our longer term ambition is to experiment with evidence based research and new approaches to learning Computer Science; i.e. drawing on lessons from leading Computer Science Programs and Bootcamps around the world while considering additional questions related to Computer Science in African contexts. The key goal of our Computing Degree Program is not just to prepare our students to think like “Computer Scientists”, but to also help them develop the skills to design, develop, and most importantly apply fundamental concepts and techniques of computation, algorithms, and computer design to a specific design problem. We are giving them the ability to think and understand the societal implications of the work being performed in this rapidly changing world.

ALU academic programs use project-based assessment, active & experiential learning, flipped classrooms, and peer-to-peer teaching to create a rigorous, engaging, and effective learning experience. As our Computer Science faculty, you will work closely with our Head of Degree Program and Learning Design Lead to curate powerful and engaging learning experiences. Your time will be divided between applying best pedagogical practices in Computer Science in class, measuring their results, making the call to “use it or lose it”; and actually engaging with students in some of their amazing projects such as coding dojos, building algorithms to trade cryptocurrencies and setting up their very own hackathon. On a higher level, you will be involved in the co-creation of a vision and strategy for the program, setting up the path that will allow students to extend the skills they learned to the outside world as the future leaders of the African Continent.
