Assistant Professor of Practice
The College of Education at Oregon State University invites applications for a full-time (1.00 FTE), 9-month, fixed term Assistant Professor of Practice position in Education. This position is in alignment with the College of Education’s Strategic Plan and Oregon State University’s commitment to student success.
This position is responsible for professional engagement, developing curriculum and teaching courses, and for providing intellectual leadership in the Education Major, Double Degree teacher preparation program with an Elementary Education focus. Students in this program earn two concurrent bachelor’s degrees – one in a content area and one in education – plus an Oregon teaching license. The Double Degree program is a campus-based program on OSU’s Corvallis campus with limited online coursework options for students, and with tracks for both elementary grade and secondary grade teacher licensure.
Students have the opportunity to earn an ESOL endorsement or a dual language specialization as part of the degree program with some additional coursework required. The program is designed to prepare excellent elementary school teachers who are ready to meet the needs and build on the assets of linguistically and culturally diverse students.
The Assistant Professor of Practice engages in the professional community of K-12 education, delivers courses, and supports development of courses that model the use of current research in elementary education and the learning sciences, with particular attention to issues of equity, social justice, and inclusive teaching practices. The position carries the expectation of engagement in applied research that supports continued programmatic innovation and reform. However, the 10% budgeted time for scholarly work and research, it is not designed for a scholar who wishes to devote significant time to research and publishing and does not carry an expectation of robust publication or independent pursuit of extramural funding.
The College of Education contributes to major national dialogues concerning research and the promotion of social justice in (1) the success of English language learners of all ages; (2) developmentally appropriate pedagogy for all ages; (3) learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics inside and outside of school; (4) the preparation of mental health and school counselors; (5) adult and higher education leadership. We develop change agents who go on to serve as formal and informal educators, counselors, and educational leaders. These change agents identify issues and act towards social justice and the full development of human potential through education.
The College of Education is part of the Division of Arts and Sciences, and we support the campus-wide goal to provide transformational educational experiences. Our work seeks to extend and update the historic democratic mission of public education: to prepare all citizens across their lifetime for full participation in a culturally diverse and technically driven world.
This position, along with all positions within the College of Education, is directly responsible for advancing the mission of the College. For more information about the College of Education, please visit http://education.oregonstate.edu.
