ADJUNCT FACULTY, Continuing Education Developmental Programs
Do you have a course idea for Continuing Education? We have a variety of non-credit courses in personal enrichment and career development and are always exploring new topics. If you have an innovative idea for a new course, we’d love to hear from you. The process for submitting courses proposals has two steps:
- Apply for the ADJUNCT FACULTY, Continuing Education New Course Proposal posting.
- Complete a New Course Proposal form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. New course proposals will not be considered until you have applied for the ADJUNCT FACULTY, Continuing Education - New Course Proposal posting.
We are fortunate to receive a high volume of proposals and inquiries from very qualified presenters, content experts and instructors, so we are not always able to respond to each one individually. While we may not have a need for your course this term, please feel free to repeat your submission according to the proposal timeline here.
Adjunct Faculty instructors at College of DuPage are responsible for course planning and instruction in classroom, lab, or clinical settings, courses may be conducted in various delivery modes, such as, face-to-face, on-line, hybrid and/or blended formats. In addition, adjunct faculty are responsible for student evaluation, and timely and accurate submission of required paperwork related to instruction.
Continuing Education developmental programs cover a range of topics for students with developmental or cognitive disabilities. Programs in this category include Literacy, Reach Out, Vocational Skills, and COACH.

Most courses meet 2 - 3 times a week for 2 – 3 hours over the span of 5 - 16 weeks. No academic credit is awarded. Minimum two years’ teaching experience is preferred.
In your cover letter, please discuss any experience in teaching online and/or hybrid courses, as well as any training in learner-centered pedagogical practices in face to face and online teaching environments.
