Cornell University’s Learning Strategies Center (lsc.cornell.edu) seeks an experienced instructor to teach our current active learning based courses designed to strengthen the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in Cornell’s rigorous introductory general chemistry courses. This is a twelve-month position. In addition to teaching during the fall and spring semesters, this person is responsible for the preparation and teaching (or co-teaching) of the chemistry components of the University’s Prefreshman Summer Program.
The successful candidate will facilitate learning activities that support students, develop the needed materials, hold extensive office hours, and supervise undergraduate tutors. The candidate will also have experience training, managing, and mentoring undergraduates to provide peer-led learning support. The candidate will contribute to the assessment of the courses they teach and of the peer-led learning support programs. As teaching and learning shifts both nationally and in chemistry at Cornell, the candidate will develop alternative approaches to provide support for emerging student needs.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position if filled. We would appreciate applications by March 1, 2021. For more information and to apply, you can view the posting here: Workday
