During this time of remote learning environment, the PTACs do not have access

All job postings will be for in-person teaching, unless they are indicated
"OC" for Online Course or "Remote" for remote teaching. OC and Remote teaching
is defined below.
Courses created specifically for online instruction have been collaboratively
designed by a content expert (normally a faculty member) and an
instructional designer and digital media and educational technology
specialists. Online course development is guided by instructional design
strategies and makes use of pedagogically led technology. Online courses are
intentionally developed for instructors and students to be separated by space
(location) and/or time (often both).
Remote instruction, as the term is used here, uses technology-enabled tools
and software to facilitate course delivery when in-person instruction is not
possible in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Remote" instruction is not
directly comparable to "online course" instruction. The difference is not in
the quality of the content, but in the design of content delivery.
In-person fall teaching will be supported by classroom safety and hygiene
protocols aligned with public health guidelines in effect at the time and will
adhere to any COVID-19 related university policies including the COVID-19 face
covering policy. Questions related to classroom safety protocols can be
directed to SHERM (firstname.lastname@example.org). Questions related to employment
accommodation needs can be directed to the confidential Health & Abilities
team in Human Resources email@example.com.
