Description:

Woodsworth College in the Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto invites applications for a full-time teaching-stream position as Lecturer and Program Co-ordinator for the College's foundational first-year program, Woodsworth One. The appointment will be at the rank of Lecturer starting July 1, 2015.

 

Woodsworth One offers students a fully integrated First Year experience, combining interdisciplinary seminars and a wide range of co-curricular activities, including guest lectures, academic skills support, student leadership events, and field trips, all designed to complement students' other courses. The program's major theme is "Order and Disorder," bringing together studies in Criminology, Sociology, Political Science, Philosophy, and History.

 

The Program Coordinator will be responsible for the overall management of this program and will also teach in the program. The Coordinator will collaborate and liaise with the College Registrar, the Director of the Academic Writing Centre, the College Learning Strategist, and other members of the College staff on all aspects of the program's development and ongoing management. Specific responsibilities will include: teaching several Woodsworth One seminars; participating in hiring additional instructors for the program, if required; developing curriculum and preparing course descriptions; organizing and coordinating co-curricular activities; recruiting student mentors and work-study students for participation in the program; liaising with other academic units and disciplinary faculty to coordinate the program with students' other first year courses; collaborating with Woodsworth's IT staff on the program's online components; working with the Registrar's Office on program admissions; representing the program at recruitment events; and surveying students and faculty and compiling statistics to assess the success of the program.

 

The successful candidate must have earned a Ph.D. by time of appointment or shortly thereafter in one of the academic disciplines included in Woodsworth One's interdisciplinary range (Sociology, Political Science, Philosophy, History, or a related interdisciplinary field of study such as Criminology) and must have demonstrated experience in teaching and curriculum development and a record of teaching excellence. Qualifications and/or teaching experience of an interdisciplinary nature would be an asset. The successful candidate should have demonstrated experience in academic program administration.

 

Appointments at the rank of Lecturer may be renewed annually to a maximum of five years. In the fifth year of service, Lecturers shall be reviewed and recommendation made with respect to promotion to the rank of Senior Lecturer.

 

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

 

Please submit a letter of application with curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a teaching portfolio including samples of teaching materials, writing instructional materials and student evaluations.
