  • Contributing to the development of new courses and programs
  • Contributing other service to the iSchool related to area of expertise
  • Mentoring adjunct instructors
  • Other related duties and service as assigned to further the mission of the unit

Minimum Qualifications:

Requirements include a minimum of three years of teaching, experience with a variety of teaching tools and technologies, deep knowledge of a subject domain related to areas described above, and excellence in classroom teaching with a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
