Job Description

Garden City Community College is seeking part-time on-campus Instructors who are passionate about connecting with students and helping them to explore their worlds through learning. The college's values include Bold Innovation with a Student-Centered Focus, and successful candidates will demonstrate a history of these concepts in their teaching.

Instructional Technologies: Garden City Community College uses Canvas by Instructure as the Learning Management System, and all instructors have access to Canvas, Canvas Arc/Studio, Microsoft Office 365, and a licensed Zoom account for working with students. Currently, GCCC has an institutional connection with Cengage Unlimited, and wherever possible, instructors use Cengage texts that are free for students. This allows students to have immediate access to e-texts when courses begin, and it allows instructors to incorporate Cengage learning support functionality such as WebAssign and MindTap when available.

Essential Functions and Responsibilities

Adjunct instructors shall only complete duties directly assigned to them, e.g., teach assigned courses as specified in the schedule and course contract including the preparation of course materials, student interaction and assessment, and maintaining course related institutional records based on established deadlines. College Committee participation or involvement shall not be assigned or self-assigned. Part-time faculty are assigned a content area mentor or liaison.

Performance Measurements

Preparation of Course Materials:

  • Prepare course materials and lesson plans that move students beyond comprehension of material presented in the textbook and guide them toward application, analysis, and evaluation in an interactive learning environment.
  • Deliver course content using a variety of teaching styles and provide interesting and engaging assignments that demonstrate the real-world applications of concepts covered.
  • Provide students an approved syllabus that includes department approved course objectives and learning outcomes, teaching methodology, attendance policies, texts and readings, assignments and deliverables, timelines and evaluation criteria.
  • Use established expectations for teaching a course to organize course materials, including syllabus, assignments, discussions, lecture videos and materials, to Canvas, the institution's LMS prior to the start of term.
  • Revise and update course content as needed.
  • Instructor and Student Interaction:

  • Observe and evaluate student performance in meeting course objectives and learning outcomes through assignments, projects, discussions or examinations; provide feedback in a timely manner on student progress.
  • Be available for students by maintaining two office hours per week.
  • Interact directly with each student and facilitate student to student interaction.
  • Participate in course retention initiatives, mainly through completing DropOut detective alerts if student's participation or quality of work changes.
  • Encourage students to submit course evaluations, review course evaluations when available and use feedback to improve course delivery.
  • Instructor and Institution Interaction:

  • Maintain records of enrollment and attendance, assessments, and grades, submit class certification rosters and student grades by GCCC established deadlines.
  • Monitor e-mail for announcements, scheduling, official grade and enrollment communications, and reminders.
  • Work closely with a liaison to provide all required program assessment data in a timely fashion.
  • Knowledge and Skills
