K-State First seeks instructors for University Experience and Introduction to K-State Culture
K-State First and the Academic Achievement Center are looking for qualified instructors to teach EDCEP 111 University Experience or DAS 100 Introduction to K-State Culture.
In fall 2020, the university will offer 11 sections of EDCEP 111 University Experience as a high energy, active-learning First-Year Seminar that meets twice a week. For first-year students only, this course is designed to introduce students to K-State and teach them the skills they will need to thrive in a college learning environment.
Next fall's Introduction to K-State Culture schedule will include six sections of DAS 100. These First-Year Seminars provide an introduction to the intellectual and cultural life of the university and support in the transition to college-level learning and college life.
We are looking for faculty, student life professionals, or advisors at K-State who have experience working with new students and an interest in new student success. Instructors of EDCEP 111 will receive professional training, a stipend of $2,000 that can be taken as professional development funds or salary, and the support of an undergraduate learning assistant. DAS 100 faculty will also receive training, a stipend of $2,000 that can be taken as professional development funds, and complimentary admission to all of the performances and events on the fall DAS 100 schedule.
If you're interested in the position or would like to nominate someone, please complete a short application online — fall 2020 UE and DAS 100 Hiring — and submit there also a short — one-page — curriculum by Thursday, Jan. 30. Alternatively, you may apply by sending a one-page letter of interest and CV to Gregory Eiselein at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the deadline.
