Overview
The New Media and Digital Design (NMDD) program at Fordham University is seeking a Part-Time Faculty to teach two sections of a Creative Coding course using p5.js in the Fall 2024 semester.

The Fall 2024 semester at Fordham University begins on Wednesday, August 28, 2024, and the two sections meet at the following times:
  • Section 1: Mondays 2:30PM - 05:15PM
  • Section 2: Mondays 6:00PM - 08:45PM

Teaching takes place in person at the university’s Lincoln Center (Manhattan) campus. A pre-existing syllabus is available for use by instructors. The existing syllabus (open to change) focuses almost entirely on the use of p5.js to learn basic coding concepts such as variables, loops, graphics, analyzing sound data, u5, using ml5, etc. In addition to this class time, instructors are required to hold regular weekly office hours (which can be held remotely). Class enrollment sizes typically range from 15-35 students.
Part-time faculty at Fordham University are represented by Fordham Faculty United, part of the SEIU Union. A collective bargaining agreement between FFU and Fordham University is in place and can be viewed here.
