Position Highlights

The Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) is seeking applicants for a part-time Facilitator to support faculty teaching online courses in MIS, specifically MIS 545 (Data Management for Business Intelligence).

The selected applicant will improve the student experience by assisting instructors with tasks such as providing responses to student inquiries, grading assignments, holding virtual office hours, and monitoring discussion boards. Additional duties will vary based on course and instructor.

A facilitator position is not a continuous position and assignments are not guaranteed for every session. This is an on-call position.

The chosen Facilitator may have the opportunity to support other MIS courses across all Eller Online programs. Assignments will last the duration of the online course, which can range anywhere from 7 to 15 weeks. This position is limited to a maximum of 19 hours per week; however, assignments typically average between 10-15 hours per week for the duration of the course. Hours vary from week to week depending on the needs of the course. Facilitators hired for MIS courses may be asked to support other online Eller programs if qualified.

Course facilitators will need to provide their own computing equipment and have access to reliable, high-speed internet. No special software will be required; although the device(s) must be capable of using virtual conferencing software and accessing the D2L LMS and course textbooks and materials.

The MIS Department is one of six academic departments in the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona. The department has been ranked in the top 5 in the field of information systems for over 30 years.

We celebrate the diversity of our students and are working to increase diversity among our faculty and staff. We welcome applications from all qualified individuals. We believe diversity enriches us all, expands our understanding, and allows us to create better solutions.
