The World Language Program in the School of Humanities, Education, Justice & Social Sciences at Lasell College is seeking a part-time instructor to teach American Sign Language. We currently have 2 classes open. While we will consider hiring separate instructors for these classes, our preference is to hire a single person with availability to teach both.
ASL111 is the first level of Elementary Sign Language. It is a face-to-face course that has been scheduled Tuesdays & Thursdays 3:30 - 5:10.
ASL211 is the third level of Sign Language (Intermediate Level). It is an online class.
Responsibilities and Duties:
Develop a syllabus and course outline for students that clearly communicates course learning outcomes.
Provide instruction for all sessions of assigned courses utilizing the college philosophy of connected learning.
Maintain office hours each week.
Incorporate Canvas (online learning platform) into the course.
Keep accurate records of student progress (grades) and complete mid-semester and final grade reports.
Collaborate with other language instructors to determine appropriate leveling and pre-requisite work
Instructors who are hired to teach in our online classes are required to participate in an online teaching certification class offered through Lasell's Teaching & Learning Center. The class is offered this summer and we expect the person hired to teach ASL211 to take the online class as they develop the online class sessions.
Lasell College is committed to equal opportunity in every aspect of hiring and employment. Lasell proactively reviews its policies and practices to assure that decisions with respect to every dimension of employment are made without regard to age, color of skin, disability, gender expression and identity, genetic predisposition, marital status, national origin, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran's status, status as a victim of domestic violence, and all other protected groups and classes under Federal and State Laws and executive orders.
Qualifications: Experience teaching American Sign Language, as well as a master's degree or ABD in a related field are required. A willingness to incorporate the college's Connected Learning Philosophy into the course is also important.
