We frequently field inquires about teaching with the MAET program. In addition to our regular program faculty, we often have a need for additional instructors to assist with course delivery. We have formalized procedures for expressing interest and on a yearly basis, around the first part of the new year, accept interest applications for the upcoming academic year.
The window is now open to express interest in joining our team for the 2016-2017 academic year. We are seeking qualified, energetic educational technology leaders. In short, we are working to gather a team of individuals who embody in practice the 7 trans-disciplinary habits of mind and who demonstrate what Thomas Friedman calls CQ and and PQ — curiosity quotient and passion quotient. Appointments to the instructional team are on a yearly basis with the possibility of renewal based upon evaluation.
Teaching with MAET is a part-time adjunct position. We welcome applicants who may already have positions elsewhere as educational technology professionals. Teaching assignments may vary from 1-3 courses per academic year depending on need and instructor availability. We are seeking both lead instructors, course assistants, and content curators.
You can indicate your interest for the 2016 – 2017 academic year by filling out the following form by February 8, 2016:
