K-State First seeks instructors for fall courses
K-State First is looking for qualified instructors to teach EDCEP 111 Foundations of College Student Success and DAS 100 Introduction to K-State Culture.
In fall 2023, the university will offer nine sections of EDCEP 111 Foundations of College Student Success 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 K-State First schedule will also include six sections of DAS 100 Introduction to K-State Culture. 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.
K-State First is 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 $2,000 stipend and complimentary admission to the performances and events on the fall DAS 100 schedule.
