What to Expect as a Faculty Member:
Faculty members educate University students by effectively and proficiently using online technology and resources so that knowledge, information, feedback, and critique are imparted to and shared with students in thoughtful, carefully formulated, well-written, and timely communications. This is accomplished in an environment that is respectful of the student, the faculty member, and the discipline in which the faculty member is involved.
All new faculty members receive specific training from the University in the techniques of online teaching; use of an electronic learning platform; specifics of the policies, procedures, and degree programs of the School or College in which they are going to teach; socialization into the University culture; and assessment of academic integrity of student work.
Teaching and mentorship assignments are contingent upon successful completion of required training. During the first term of teaching, faculty members may be assigned a faculty peer mentor (senior colleague) as an extension of their new instructor training. Peer mentors will continue to support instruction and provide peer reviews of the classroom on a regular basis.
Faculty members are assigned courses, which are taught using the Learning Management System (LMS), and are responsible for interacting with students within the LMS. Discussion Boards for classrooms are open 24 hrs/day, 7 days/wk.
Faculty members are expected to be in the classroom a minimum of 4 days/wk and responses to student questions must be posted within 48 hrs. The university suggests regular and predictable availability, such as online office hours or regular online chats; office hours may be required based on program or college policy.
Faculty mentors may be assigned to work one-on-one with students to help students meet the research requirements of their degree. Faculty members are responsible for the provision of timely feedback, approval, assessment, and evaluation of each student’s work within the classroom.
To perform this job successfully, an individual must be able to perform each essential duty satisfactorily. The requirements listed are representative of the knowledge, skill, and/or ability required. Incumbents will be evaluated, in part, based on the performance of each essential function. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform essential functions.
Faculty Members must be appropriately credentialed, work currently as NP, possess an earned degree from an accredited institution, or be recognized by a country’s ministry of education in the discipline being taught, and may be expected to be licensed or license-eligible to teach in specific programs.
Faculty Members must maintain their licenses and any appropriate certifications in order to continue to teach at the University.
