Position description

Cowell College at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of part-time lecturers to teach sections of Cowell College 1 , the first course of UCSC's Academic Literacy Curriculum. College 1 is a required core course designed to help students develop academic and civic proficiency in reading and critical thinking. Students will develop understanding of “academic ethos” and habits of mind and practice that are tied to a sense of belonging and academic success. This course prepares students for success in other UCSC courses. There is no placement exam for College 1 ; enrollment in this course is not tracked by proficiency in reading, writing, or critical thinking.

Instructors meet with a seminar of about thirty students two or three times per week and present material from an established syllabus; assign and evaluate student work; meet with students in small groups; prepare grades, which may include narrative evaluations of student performance; hold weekly office hours; and carry out other typical instructional duties.

Cowell College 1 focuses on the concept of justice, both historic and contemporary, and considers how theorists, artistic media, and societies themselves may transmit, question, or revise notions of what is just. How do we define justice? When can we say that justice has been served? Do ideas about what is just differ according to time, place, and culture, or are some notions of justice recognizable as general human values?

Applicants with any of the following qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • Ph.D. (or equivalent foreign degree).
  • Demonstrated record of working effectively with students from a wide range of social, cultural, and academic backgrounds.
  • Familiarity with current theory and research in critical and analytical reading.
  • Cowell College : https: // cowell.ucsc.edu/
