The Experimental College at Tufts University seeks Visiting Lecturers from a range of backgrounds and professions for the Spring 2024 semester. We are committed to diversity and inclusion. 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. We are looking for out-of-the-ordinary courses that also have broad appeal.
Up to fifteen courses will be chosen from a very competitive pool. ExCollege courses are three-credit, letter-graded electives. Classes meet in the evening, once a week, for a total of 2.5 contact hours per week, over thirteen teaching weeks. Our courses are typically taught in a classroom setting at the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus. Spring 2024 courses will primarily be offered in person, and online courses will only be considered under special circumstances. Selected applicants may be asked to adjust their proposed syllabi as necessary to meet ExCollege and university guidelines. Stipend: $5,500.00 for the semester, whether taught individually or team-taught. The semester will begin on January 17, 2024. The last day of classes is April 29, 2024.
Anyone who has some special expertise to offer Tufts undergraduates and has the ability to share that expertise effectively may apply.
All offers of employment are contingent upon the completion of a background check and meeting the University’s current COVID-19 vaccination requirements.
Applications must be submitted via Interfolio apply.interfolio.com/125525.
You will be asked to upload four documents: a biographical statement, course description, syllabus, and CV.
You will also be asked to include a 200-word course summary and instructor bio which will be used to market your course to students.
The deadline to apply is: Monday, August 14, 2023.
