The Department of Elementary and Special Education in the College of Education invites applications and nominations for a one-year Visiting Instructor of Elementary Mathematics/Science Education position.

Georgia Southern University is a distinctive combination of Southern charm and uncompromising academics. We are a Carnegie Doctoral/R2 institution serving about 26,500 students through nine colleges on three beautiful oak-lined campuses in Statesboro, Savannah, Hinesville, and via a growing online program. Throughout its degree offerings at the associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, Georgia Southern cultivates community collaboration, world-class scholarship and hands-on learning opportunities
Georgia Southern University was founded in 1906 as a school for teaching modern agricultural production techniques and homemaking skills to rural school children. Its Savannah campus was established in 1935 as Armstrong Junior College for local youth who could not afford to attend college away from home. The Liberty Center in Hinesville was established in 1998 to serve the military and their families at nearby Fort Stewart, the largest military base east of the Mississippi. All three locations came together in 2018 when Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University consolidated. The "new" Georgia Southern University preserves a passion for serving its neighbors while preparing students for lifelong service as scholars, leaders, and responsible stewards of their communities.
Believing that diversity, equity, and inclusion contribute to excellence in the workplace and to the quality of the University's academic environment, Georgia Southern University is committed to recruiting and retaining diverse faculty and staff to support, promote, and serve a diverse student body and promote Inclusive Excellence. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups, whose work furthers the institution's Inclusive Excellence goals and who bring to campus varied life experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
Within this setting, the College of Education offers undergraduate and graduate programs to prepare students for work in public and private education, community agencies, and higher education. The Department of Elementary and Special Education is committed to preparing reflective educators who work collaboratively and effectively with diverse students in public schools by using current research to inform their practices. The College of Education is accredited by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. The individual hired in this position is expected to contribute to the college's goals of continued excellence and innovation in teaching, scholarship, and service.
Reporting to the Chair of the Department of Elementary and Special Education, the one-year Visiting Instructor of Elementary Mathematics/Science Education position primarily focuses upon teaching mathematics and science education methods courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and supervising teacher candidates in both the department's traditional Armstrong campus-based undergraduate program in Savannah and our fully-online MAT program in Elementary Education. The teaching requires the modeling of effective instructional practices for diverse student populations and the use of instructional technology in face-to-face, hybrid, and online learning environments. Some supervision responsibilities will require in-person observation of undergraduate teacher candidates in local K-5 public school classrooms. Other supervision responsibilities will be fully online observations of graduate-level in-service teachers. In addition, the position involves collaborating with faculty across the College of Education and performing service to the department, college, University, regional schools, and professional community. The position is a 10-month appointment, and the salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
To equitably serve a fast growing and highly diverse student body and to fulfill the University's commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, we actively seek candidates with a demonstrated commitment to Pillar 3 of our University Strategic Plan: Inclusive Excellence (See: https://www.georgiasouthern.edu/inclusive-excellence/recommendations/ )
