Tufts Teaching Opportunity for Fall 2018
The Experimental College invites professionals and graduate students to apply as Visiting Lecturers for the Fall 2018 semester.
Graduate students in particular are always looking for opportunities to teach in their area of expertise, and the Experimental College at Tufts University is a place where that can happen. If this opportunity sounds like a good fit for someone you know, please help us spread the word by including the announcement in departmental newsletters or other communications.
Design an undergraduate elective course
Explore interdisciplinary subjects
Examine contemporary issues and ideas
Use innovative teaching methods
ExCollege courses seek to complement – rather than duplicate – classes being offered in the traditional departments.
Up to fifteen courses will be chosen from a very competitive pool. Classes meet for 2.5 hours in the evening, once a week, over thirteen weeks. They are usually kept to less than twenty students and are discussion/participation oriented. Courses are usually taught in a classroom setting at the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus.
In the past, each Experimental College course has carried an honorarium of $4,500.00 per course, whether individually or team-taught.
The Fall 2018 semester begins September 4, 2018 and classes end on December 10, 2018.
Read the complete job posting and apply via Interfolio at: apply.interfolio.com/46757.
Applications must be uploaded through Interfolio with these four documents: a biographical statement, course description, syllabus, and resume/CV.
The deadline to apply is: Monday, January 8, 2018.
