Interested in teaching at the college level? Walters State Community College invites prospective instructors to attend the 2013 Adjunct Faculty Recruitment Fair from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23. The event will be in the Duggins Foundation Room of the Dr. Jack E. Campbell College Center on the Morristown campus. Candidates can drop in at anytime during the two-hour period.
“This year, we are very interested in finding instructors who are willing to use alternative delivery methods targeting non-traditional students,” said Linda Roberts, assistant vice president for academic affairs at Walters State.
“This includes teachers willing to work in accelerated programs, like our popular College Express. We’re also looking for instructors willing to use technology and to teach hybrid courses, where some instruction is in the classroom and some online,” Roberts added.
Walters State is also seeking instructors for dual enrollment (for high school students), evening courses, video-streaming and web-based courses. Adjunct faculty are needed at all four campuses locations: Greeneville, Morristown, Sevierville and Tazewell. Classes may also be available at off-campus locations including area high schools.
Distance education staff, division deans and department heads will be available to meet one-on-one with candidates during the recruitment fair. Roberts encourages those interested in adjunct teaching positions to bring transcripts, resumes, and completed Walters State applications. Applications are available at www.ws.edu. Most positions do require a master’s degree with 18 graduate hours in the subject taught. Some positions teaching technical subjects may only require bachelor’s degrees.
At this time, the college needs instructors in the following subjects: American government/political science; first aid; geography; psychology; sociology; special education; nursing (must have MSN); physical therapist assistant; art history; English; philosophy; Spanish; speech; violin; voice; music; theatre; mathematics; anatomy/physiology; biology; chemistry; physics; clean energy technology; computer science; industrial mechanics; industrial electricity; drafting and design; and manufacturing. More subjects may become available during the year.
