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.

  • 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.
