We are located on the 2nd floor of the Student Alumni Union (SAU). If you take the large staircase to the right of Artesano's, there is an information desk at the top that can direct you to our office space. The Year One Programs team is currently working remotely. The best way to reach us is through our department email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the difference between a Facilitator and a teacher/instructor?
As a teacher/instructor you are likely to be considered an authority in the room and have an expertise in the subject matter of the course. The role of a teacher/instructor is to deliver content information in a format that helps students learn and retain it. As a facilitator, you are not an expert and actively work to discourage the authority that students may give you because of your position. Your role is to create a space where every student's experience and perspective is valued equally. As a facilitator, you are a co-learner with the students.
Is there a deadline to apply? What is the hiring timeline?
We are hiring on a rolling basis. Applications are welcome beginning February, and will be accepted through mid-August. After applying, you will receive detailed information regarding scheduling an interview.
