Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Anyone interested in becoming a part-time instructor for Ozarks Technical Community College can learn more about teaching opportunities on Saturday, March 22 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Adjunct Faculty Career Fair at the OTC Springfield Campus. OTC is recruiting general education and technical instructors to teach part-time at all five of its locations in Springfield, Richwood Valley, Lebanon, Waynesville and Table Rock beginning in summer 2014.
For general education courses, such as English or math, adjunct (also known as part-time) instructors should have at least 18 graduate-level credit hours in the discipline they seek to teach. For technical disciplines, such as nursing or welding, instructors should have at least five years of practical experience. Some teaching experience is desirable.
"At OTC, we value instructors who have training and practical experience," said Tim Baltes, OTC college director of human resources. "Instructors who bring academic knowledge and work experience into the classroom can enhance student learning. As a lot of our students also work, we feel that working professionals can bring applicable situations and real-world examples that will be even more salient to our student body."
Adjunct instructors start at $707 to per credit hour and over time can earn as much as $960 per credit hour. Conveniently, most of the class opportunities are on-line or taught after working hours. Interested candidates should bring a completedOTC application, resume, unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and any certifications or licenses appropriate for the position to the career fair.
