What It Takes to Teach in a College Affiliated with The New American Baccalaureate College
At this time, there are no faculty positions available while we await the implementation of the NAB at participating colleges. Once this has been accomplished, here is what we will be looking for:
We seek exceptionally motivated and highly qualified people to teach in a new baccalaureate program for self-motivated non-traditional students at a liberal arts college. Your academic background and teaching experience in specific areas are important. But more significant for our program is your ability to facilitate the learning of students in various ways.
Desired qualities include:
- Ability to create a constructive partnership with learners in a student-centered milieu but one that is guided by a list of performance capabilities each student must achieve in order to graduate;
- Ability to work in a collaborative environment where fellow teachers influence the design and operation of the seminars they teach;
- Ability to assess student performance with flexibility and sensitivity while upholding high standards of performance;
- Ability and willingness to spend a period up to one year (pre-enrollment) working half-time in area high schools to help prepare non-traditional students for college; the other half spent on our campus in curricular and program planning with college faculty;
- Sensitivity and responsiveness to the culture and life experience of non-traditional students who are likely to be the first in their families to attend college;
- Ability and willingness to assume responsibilities outside of classroom teaching that further students’ success in meeting graduation requirements;
- Doctorate or its equivalent (masters degree plus relevant teaching experience);
- Experience in both traditional and non-traditional educational settings and ability to work well within a liberal arts college environment.
All positions will be full-time, including benefits and the opportunity for stipends for extra-curricular responsibilities in areas such as recruitment, training of student mentors, internship placement and supervision, counseling, and liaison to College faculty and administrators.
