Adjunct Instructor, Anatomy & Physiology (Bloomington, IN)
The Anatomy & Physiology program at Ivy Tech Bloomington is seeking people interested in serving as part-time adjunct instructors for some of our A&P classes, particularly our labs, starting this fall. We are re-designing the labs to minimize the amount of time that adjunct instructors work outside of the lab sessions while still providing opportunities for professional development and career advancement.
- The greatest need is for adjunct instructors for A&P I and A&P 2 labs, although lecture positions (or combined lecture/lab positions) may also be available.
- The courses cater largely to pre-nursing and pre-allied health program students.
- The lectures are usually managed by a full-time faculty member. An adjunct lab instructor would thus be a co-instructor with and be supervised by this full-time faculty member, who would do the vast majority of the out-of-class course administration.
- We have a wide availability of lab section availability – mostly Monday through Thursday morning, afternoon, and evening (possibly also Friday afternoon and Saturday morning)
- The lab sections will meet two days each week for an hour (for 16-week sections) or four days each week for an hour (for 8-week sections).
- Section sizes are currently capped at 12 students for the fall term.
- Lab protocols, assignments, presentation slides, handouts, exams, and all other materials are provided; no need for the instructor to make up anything on her/his own. (The tradeoff is not much freedom for an instructor to do their own thing.) That means minimal prep and easy, straightforward grading.
- Adjunct instructors for our A&P classes must have earned at least 9 graduate credit hours in a biological science or related field.
- Adjunct instructors are limited to 12 contact hours a week.
- If you interview with us and are accepted into our pool of adjunct instructors, we will work with your availability and preferences for the number of sections you teach and the days/times of those sections. Ultimately, instructor assignments are dependent on enrollment.
