Adjunct Teaching Opportunities
Looking for opportunities to develop your teaching skills?
Pacific University is seeking applicants for a range of adjunct-instructor positions. If you feel you have effective teaching skills and practice expertise that you would like to share with our graduate occupational therapy students, please consider submitting an application. You will also have the benefit of faculty mentoring to support the development of your teaching and instructional skills.
We are seeking OT practitioners whom have developed specialty knowledge and practice skills that can come from any one or more of the range of all typical and emerging practice areas, as well as research. Duties of adjunct instructors will be dependent on the set of skills and knowledge presented in the application in relation to the needs of the program. Examples of ways that we expect to employ adjunct instructors are:
- Guest lecturing on individual topics (1-3 hour commitment)
- Guest teaching special units (e.g., a three-class unit on splinting to a one month course on advanced pediatric practice)
- Laboratory teaching assistants (weekly commitments of 6-8 hours in foundational OT process courses for a full 15 week semester)
- Innovative Practice Project supervision (providing 3-10 hours per week of on-site supervision for the development of emerging practice models with student teams of 2-4 students)
- Level I fieldwork supervision in community-based psychosocial or pediatric settings, and
- Serving as an on-line course discussion leader on topics in your practice area
If the challenges and rewards of teaching are of interest to you, please complete the application and submit it along with a letter outlining the instructional areas in which you feel you will be most effective to the address below:
