Position Highlights:

The Department of Marketing in the Eller College of Management is seeking course facilitators to support faculty members teaching online marketing courses. Course facilitators improve the student experience by assisting course instructors with tasks such as providing timely responses to student questions, grading assignments, holding virtual office hours, and monitoring discussion boards. Duties will vary based on course, program, and instructor.
The Department of Marketing is one of six academic units in the Eller College of Management offering undergraduate, master's, and doctoral programs. It is internationally recognized for pioneering research, innovative curriculum, and distinguished faculty.
This is not a continuous position; facilitators will be assigned to courses based on their areas of expertise. Initially, facilitators will be assigned to individual courses. Based on the needs of the department, facilitators may also be invited to facilitate additional courses; additional courses may overlap by prior arrangement between the department and facilitator. Facilitators will be hired from this posting for multiple course sessions including Fall, Spring, and Summer with start dates aligning with the course assignments. Assignments are contingent on minimum course enrollment, therefore not guaranteed every semester. Facilitation will last the duration of the online course assigned, which can range anywhere from 7 to 15 weeks depending on the program. This position is expected to average around 10 hours per week per course, but generally varies week-to-week based on assignments and the course schedule.
Course facilitators will need to provide their own computing equipment and have access to reliable, high-speed internet. No special software will be required; although, the device(s) must be capable of accessing D2L and using virtual conferencing software.
