This is an exciting opportunity to join the UW-Madison Department of Curriculum & Instruction, ranked #1 by U.S. News, as a Faculty Associate to teach in a cutting-edge, joint ESL/Secondary Masters program for teacher certification. The Department of Curriculum & Instruction is home to a number of research-based teacher certification programs. These programs are designed around practice-based field experiences in which students observe, assist, and teach in both classrooms and out-of-school educational programs as they work toward earning their initial educator licenses. The new masters-level program in secondary teacher education is at the forefront of a new approach for preparing teachers in both a content area and in teaching English as a second language. We are seeking a faculty associate to teach core science pedagogical methods in the program and to work with area schools to find appropriate practicum and student teaching placements for students.

Candidates should have at least three years of experience teaching school science at the secondary level. Candidates should also have excellent interpersonal, teamwork, written and oral communication skills, and an exceptional record of classroom instruction and curricular innovation in science education methods that can further enhance our program.

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction has a strong commitment to disability, racial, ethnic, linguistic, gender, and sexual diversity and seeks applications from members of historically underrepresented groups and those who can demonstrate a commitment to diversity.
