The Department of Academic Support is seeking Saint Louis University faculty and staff to apply to become University 101 (EDH 101) course primary instructors. This course is designed to assist in the transition to college for first-year students. Students learn about campus resources, and how to become involved on campus. The interactive course will cover topics including introduction to the Jesuit mission, academic and time management skills, values and career exploration, and awareness of self and others.
The University 101: Enhancing First Year Success primary instructor is responsible for the oversight and direction of 1 section of this 1-credit, 14 week, course including class preparation and in-class facilitation. All primary instructors are paired with a peer instructor, who is an involved upper-class student leader, who serves as a student voice and active participant in class planning and facilitation. Instructors spend approximately 5 hours/week for the duration of the course for class preparation, attendance, meeting with your peer instructor, and evaluation of student material.
Those interesting in applying must be able to demonstrate knowledge of SLU and ability to balance additional responsibilities, have attained a minimum education level of a Masters-degree, and attend two training sessions scheduled for Friday, April 12, 2013 and Monday, August 19, 2013, both from 1:00pm - 5:00pm.
