EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE
Lecturer (Non-tenure track)
Tufts University
Medford, MA

The Experimental College at Tufts University seeks adjunct instructors from a range of backgrounds and professions for the Fall 2016 semester. Applicants are asked to design and – 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. 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 as current affairs, cultural studies, media, technology, politics, race, gender, law, world religions, environmental concerns, business, healthcare, and ethics. Twenty courses will be chosen from a very competitive pool.

Classes meet in the evening, once or twice a week, for a total of 2.5 contact hours per week, over thirteen teaching weeks. While the majority of our courses are taught in a traditional classroom setting at the Tufts Somerville/Medford campus, proposals for online courses have been considered in exceptional cases. The fall semester begins Tuesday, September 6, 2016 and runs through December 12, 2016.

For more information, examples of the courses offered, or to apply, please visit: www.excollege.tufts.edu, or call 617-627-3384, or email us at excollege@tufts.edu

To receive full consideration applicants should apply by Friday, March 11, 2016.

Tufts University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
