About the Job

We are interested in building a diverse group of faculty with experience in arts and cultural leadership who are passionate about educating emerging leaders. We're also interested in engaging first-time instructors who are themselves arts and cultural leaders. Teaching Specialists report to the Associate Dean for Graduate Education, CCAPS and typically teach on a semester basis to teach at least one course per academic year. Courses may be offered in face-to-face, online, or hybrid formats.

As a growing program, ACL has a need for additional instructional staff to offer coursework in topics that include current trends in the arts and cultural sector, cross-sector collaboration, and arts entrepreneurship. Responsibilities

  • Revise course or provide input as appropriate to stay abreast of discipline practices and trends, and to support changes in the disciplinary goals and curricula.
  • Stay current in the discipline and participate in activities to support professional development, faculty community dialog, self-assessment, and teaching reviews.
  • Be responsive to student communication as needed
  • Work with the Director of Graduate Studies and program staff as needed to resolve course- or student-related situations that require support or resources outside the classroom.

    • Master's degree
    • Five or more years of professional experience in a field directly related to the course of instruction Preferred
      • A PhD or equivalent terminal degree in a field closely related to the course of instruction
      • Ten or more years of professional experience in a field directly related to the course of instruction
      • Experience in teaching higher education courses
      • Experience in building curricula in arts and cultural leadership
      • A demonstrated understanding of pedagogy blending theoretical concepts and professional application.
      • Excellent written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills and proven ability to work successfully with diverse groups of people.
