Tufts University’s Experimental College is searching for adjunct instructors during the Spring 2016 semester. Applicants are asked to design and then, if selected, teach small, discussion-based courses that promote active learning and that engage Tufts undergraduates in an exploration of ideas and experiences shaping the world today. While the majority of our courses are taught in a traditional classroom setting at the Tufts Medford campus, proposals for online courses will also be given serious consideration. Classes that offer critical, and quite often, interdisciplinary contexts form the core of the Experimental College’s curriculum. Our mission is to challenge an already motivated set of students and get them thinking in new ways about such important subject areas such as current affairs, cultural studies, media, technology, politics, race and gender, the law, world religions, environmental concerns, business, healthcare, and ethics. Twenty courses will be chosen from a very competitive pool.
The semester begins Wednesday, January 21, 2016, and runs through Monday, May 2, 2016. Classes meet in the evening, once or twice a week, for a total of 2.5 contact hours per week, over thirteen teaching weeks.
Deadline to apply: Friday, October 9, 2015.
