Adjunct Faculty Recruiting
Thank you for your interest in teaching for the Florida Tech Online programs. We seek to provide our students with the finest possible education using the most appropriate delivery technology. We offer an education that is reflective of current best practices and that is taught by instructors who are fully qualified academically and by virtue of professional practice.
Faculty members are appointed on an adjunct, part-time basis only and are contracted to teach courses over an 8-week term with the strong possibility of recurring assignments. Adjunct faculty are able to teach up to three classes over a 16-week period.
Undergraduate Course Work
Candidates should have, at a minimum, a Master's degree from a regionally accredited institution with a concentration in the teaching discipline (minimum of 18 graduate semester hours in the teaching discipline). A doctorate or master's degree in the teaching discipline from a regionally accredited institution is preferred.
Graduate Course Work
Candidates should have an earned doctoral/terminal degree from a regionally accredited institution in the teaching discipline or a related discipline.
Any open adjunct faculty positions for our Online Learning programs will be posted at www.HigherEdJobs.com. Search by Location, Institution, then Florida Institute of Technology. When a position is posted and applications are reviewed, qualified candidates will be contacted to set up a telephone interview. Should you be chosen for a position, you will be required to submit official transcripts, an I-9 form (employment eligibility), and a W-4 form.
The course content will be fully developed beforehand. However, the adjunct faculty will facilitate all aspects of instruction, including mentoring and monitoring student progress, fostering communication and collaboration, guiding and evaluating student project work and other assignments, and responding to individual student requests/queries and similar functions. Since courses will be taught online, adjunct faculty can be based at any location with a reliable high-speed internet connection.
Candidates will be required to complete an online training program covering online teaching in general and Florida Tech's methodology in particular.
