Demonstrated experience with educational technologies, such as online homework systems, message boards, videos, smart boards, or classroom personal response systems ("clickers") and experience teaching large lectures.

These are full-time, nine-month, non-tenure track positions which may lead to long-term multi-year contracts. The teaching load for these positions is approximately six courses per year. These positions have an anticipated start date of August 23, 2017.
