Job description
We are seeking two enthusiastic Teaching Assistants for the Master’s programme in Digital Design in the upcoming 2019/20 academic year. They are recently graduated from a Master’s programme in design and are able to create a positive, productive and creative environment in a design studio. They have a strong affinity for digital design, they can facilitate group work in an international and multicultural setting, and they are willing to assist lecturers in teaching. They also have good communication skills, and are able to document the creative process and presentations taking place at the design studio of the M.Sc. Digital Design through pictures, blogs, and videos.

The primary functions of the two Teaching Assistants in Digital Design are:

  • support the various lecturers of the programme in teaching, as well as in providing formative evaluation;
  • support students and lecturers in promoting their work outside the programme, e.g. writing and publishing research papers with students and colleagues, or actively attending professional networking events;
  • contributing to the public communications of the programme with regular blog posts on http://masterdigitaldesign.com, as well as facilitating students’ contributions;


The Master in Digital Design programme brings together practice, research, and technological innovation. The 1-year full time curriculum combines a rigorous background in design research (‘Research through Design’, ‘Action Research’) with real-world projects involving industry partners carried out in a studio setting. It is designed to challenge students, and prepare them for the real-life rhythms of design professionals. The programme centres around four main areas of expertise: Literacy, Research, Creation and Strategy. It is completely taught in English, to a multicultural cohort of 24 students.

The M.Sc. Digital Design is an initiative of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, in cooperation with eight leading Dutch digital agencies (DDB Tribal, FHV BBDO, Fabrique, MediaMonks, Mirabeau, Momkai, TamTam, and Woedend!) and a network of project partners (for 2018/19: The Royal Dutch Touring Club ANWB, VodafoneZiggo, Informaat, Gemeente Amsterdam, World Wildlife Fund, Philips Design, Dudok Architectuur Centrum, Ijsfontein, Waag).
