    Members of the Contract Teaching Faculty bargaining unit:

    During this time of remote learning environment, the PTACs do not have access to Official Files. If there are documents you submitted to your Official File you would like the PTAC to use in the review of your application, you will need to include those documents when applying for positions.

    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 (shermcovid19@wlu.ca). Questions related to employment accommodation needs can be directed to the confidential Health & Abilities team in Human Resources cgruhl@wlu.ca.

    Should you be interested in learning more about this opportunity, please visitwww. wlu.ca/careers for additional information and the online application system. All applications must be submitted online. Please note, a CV and letter of introduction will be required in electronic form.
