Visiting Instructor/Professor - Integrative STEM Education

To enrich education through diversity, The College of New Jersey is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The College has a strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty and staff, and strongly encourages women and members of underrepresented groups to apply.

Description:

The Department of Integrative STEM Education in the School of Engineering at The College of New Jersey invites applications for a visiting professor starting August 2021.

The department leads three design-based programs that prepare the next generation of educational leaders with expertise in both pedagogy and STEM content knowledge, as well as the capabilities necessary to grow our STEM-literate citizenry. The Technology & Engineering Education major is a secondary technology education K-12 program with an engineering emphasis, as represented by content, methods, and course requirements. The integrative STEM dual major produces a large number of integrative STEM capable K-6 and middle school teachers. The department is also expanding a Master of Education program with possible certificates in integrative STEM Methods, Design Thinking, and Environmental Sustainability Education.

The department is searching for a visiting professor for a one-year term to lead courses in K-12 Integrative STEM Education for the undergraduate and the Masters of Education program. Our courses keep the K-12 educator at the forefront. These include Integrative STEM for Young Learners, Integrative STEM Pedagogy & Curriculum, Engineering Math for Educators, Engineering Design, Structures & Mechanics, Mechanical Systems, Architectural Design, Analog Electronics, Control & Robotics, and Digital Electronics. Other courses are designed broadly to meet liberal learning goals including Creative Design, and Society, Ethics & Technology.

Qualifications:

Individuals interested in the one year visiting instructor/professor line should hold an earned doctorate in an appropriate field relevant to department courses, but individuals with a master degree and specialized experience will be considered and are encouraged to apply. This includes Engineering Education, STEM Education, or a closely related field. The successful candidate must present evidence of capabilities in all of the following areas: K-12 STEM education with an emphasis on technology and engineering education (direct experiences with K-12 students are preferred), undergraduate teaching, curriculum and laboratory development, and an understanding of integrative STEM methods. Experience with (or interest in) remote teaching is also desired.

Contact Information:

Qualified candidates should provide a letter of interest, curriculum vitae or resume, a teaching philosophy statement, including relevant teaching experience and unofficial transcripts (official transcripts will be required if offered a position). Please include the names and contact information for at least three professional references. Review of application materials will occur immediately and will continue until a candidate is hired. Employment is contingent upon completion of a successful background check.
