Full-Time Instructor - Design Department

Position Description

Are you passionate about design? Not ďI like thinking about itĒ passionate, but "I canít stop thinking about it and annoy random people at the store" passionate? Does the idea of helping students open their eyes and understand how much design impacts the everyday world make you bubble over with ideas?

DigiPen is looking for instructors to help teach the next generation of designers. Join our team of instructors and help our students develop the skills they need to enter the industry. Support them as they try, and fail, and try again. Help guide them as they make projects and games that win awards, showcase their skills and help get them jobs. Apply your passion for design and your experience in the field to the DigiPen classroom.

The position is responsible for teaching design courses with a variety of specializations, helping to develop curriculum for existing and new courses, and supporting our design students.This is a full time position at our Redmond, Washington campus.

Key Duties and Responsibilities

Teaching and Coursework

  • Full time faculty are expected to teach a full course load in Spring and Fall semester. This will usually include 7-8 class sections each academic year, with lectures and labs. Class size varies by course content. This position includes Summer release from teaching.
  • Support students with prompt detailed grading and feedback, maintain office hours and respond to student questions and needs.

Areas of Specialization

Please include details of any experience with teaching or instruction at any level. In addition, while it is valuable for design faculty to be able to teach courses in many different aspects of design, we are currently looking for subject leaders in the following areas:

  • User Research: User research focuses on understanding user behaviors, needs, and motivations through observation techniques, task analysis, and other feedback methodologies. DigiPen projects tend to be game focused, but UR experience in any field or medium is valuable. If you are interested in applying for a UR design teaching position please include details of three UR projects you have been involved with, preferably in a lead position. Describe what your testing methodology and goals were, and what results your research generated.
  • User Experience: User Experience designers focus on every aspect of personís interaction with a system, including UI, game feel, and efficiency of operations. A UX designer must be aware of both the details of the system and the needs and capabilities of the user. DigiPen is seeking UX instructors passionate about helping students understand the needs and process of other people as they use products of all types, primarily focused on games and game systems. If you are interested in applying for a UX design teaching position please include examples of UX projects you have been involved with, ideally in a lead position. Include notes on the intended user and how that impacted the UX design.
  • System Design: System Designers focus on game play systems and what users/players can do in student games and projects. A system design instructor should have a passion for helping students reduce complex systems to simple understandable components/modules and understanding how those systems interact to encourage engaging experiences for our users. If you are interested in applying for a system design teaching position please include details on systems where you have been responsible for developing the system verbs Ė what users can do and how they do it. Include details on the intended user and how that influenced your design.
  • Level Design: Level Designers focus on level and spatial design, creating usable and believable spaces that encourage engagement for players. Like many fields of design, strong level design is often invisible to the end user. A successful level designer uses layout, lighting and visual cues, pacing and an understanding of user psychology to create engagement and suggest user behavior. If you are interested in applying for a level design teaching position please include examples of spaces you have designed, including maps and visual examples. Include details on the intended user and how that influenced your design.
  • Narrative Design: Narrative designers develop and guide the underlying themes and stories involved in games projects, with a focus on making players feel like they are a driving force in a powerful, engaging experience. Narrative designers guide a gameís dialog, pacing, story and plot development, and the emotional experience of the player. If you are interested in applying for a narrative design teaching position please include examples of three interactive experiences for which you have been responsible for the narrative, theme and story, ideally in a lead position. Include details on the intended user and how that influenced your design.
  • Technical Design: Technical designers focus on the technical scripting and implementation of game play systems and on systems where the design is closely integrated with the code such as in procedural generation of content. Technical designers bridge the gap between engineers and pure designers, often building tools, establishing APIs with the engineers, and guiding the engineersí efforts to meet the goals of the design.

Qualifications

Required

  • Undergraduate degree in any field or equivalent. Preference is given for degrees in related fields Ė Design, Psychology, Communications, or other field.
  • 5+ years of professional experience. 2+ shipped titles, published works, published research projects or other body of work.
  • Lecture experience, including talks or panels at conventions or events.

Preferred/Valuable

  • 10+ years of experience including design lead positions with the ability to apply the skills of the area of specialization.
  • Shipped titles in different platforms and media.
  • Teaching and lecture experience in a college setting.

About DigiPen-KMU Special Program

DigiPen-KMU Special Program is a dual degree program where students spend five semesters at Keimyung University in Daegu, South Korea before completing the program's last four semesters at DigiPen's main campus in Redmond, Washington, USA. (Participants also have the option of finishing their degree at DigiPen's campus in Singapore, instead.)

For the first two years of the program, students study advanced mathematics as well as general computer programming in C/C++ at Keimyung University. Students then apply these subjects to their freshman and sophomore game projects. First-year students create 2D game projects using DigiPenís proprietary Zero Engine editor and a basic graphics engine. Sophomores collaborate on game teams to build their own 2D game and graphics engine.

During the last two years of the program, students study advanced computer science topics at DigiPen in Redmond while taking more elective-based coursework. For their junior-year project, students complete an original 3D game and graphics engine. Students live and work alongside degree candidates from other majors, such as game design and digital art and animation.
