Job Opening: Design a college course about science education/great teaching
- Many non-educators don't understand the beautiful complexity, creativity, and rigor involved in excellent teaching. But we think if college students got a glimpse of it, more of them would be excited to become teachers. We need to inspire the next generation of science teachers!
That is why we are offering $8,000 to a course designer or co-designers to design a course that gets undergraduates excited about teaching science/math. The course designer(s) will be supported by an advisory panel and an assistant. Note that the course designers are tasked with, first and foremost, designing the course. Whether you teach the course at your university depends on a variety of factors, including your interest to do so. But, regardless, the course syllabus will be introduced initially at University of Southern California and Stanford University, and, down the line, will be distributed to universities around the country.
Course designers should be passionate about teaching science/math. They must have been a highly effective teacher themselves, and experience in a PhD program is preferred but not required. If interested in this opportunity, please review the job description here and submit answers to a few brief questions by March 18, per the instructions in the job description (http://goo.gl/JTGZo).
