Workshop and Teaching-Circle Coordinator

The coordinator would be responsible for workshops across the year that are designed to address the particular needs of WSAP instructors. This involves:

Workshop planning, in general, requires writing announcements, collecting RSVPs, keeping records of attendees, collecting workshop evaluations, and working closely with the department secretary to send announcements, reserve rooms, and provide snacks.

The coordinator will also be responsible for creating and managing teaching circles. Teaching circles bring together a small group of peers with different amounts of teaching experience for regular (monthly or twice a month) informal get-togethers around the topic of teaching. The groups might share in-class activities, teaching successes and challenges, and the like. The WSAP coordinator helps to form these groups, provides snacks and possibly a space to meet, and, with the help of program directors, assesses their worth.


Compensation is $4,000 per academic year.


Deadline: May 1, 2015
