Dean College's School of Business is looking for a dynamic,
experienced, student-centered educator to teach Internship
Connections: Creating Your Plan (DCA 200) during the Fall 2021
semester. The College seeks Adjunct Faculty who focus on
experiential learning and active engagement in their classrooms.
Adjuncts chosen to teach at Dean create a compelling and
professional learning environment for students of diverse learning
backgrounds. Adjuncts should be prepared to be flexible. The
adjunct faculty member is expected to teach the entire semester
face-to-face. However, given changing conditions, the
instructor may need to pivot to synchronous online instruction
and/or accommodate students who may need to isolate for a period
during the course.
We are seeking an adjunct instructor for DCA 200 -
Internship Connections. DCA 200 is a 1-credit class that
meets for 2 hour/week for one Quarter. The adjunct pay
rate is $1,067/section. Adjunct faculty are expected to hold one
office hour each week for each section they teach. The Business
program provides a course charter with course objectives as well as
sample syllabi. All faculty are expected to make active use of the
learning management system (Canvas) at least at a minimum level
established by the College.
This course is part of Dean College's Dean Career Advantage
(DCA), is a holistic approach jointly developed by Academic Affairs
and Student Development to assist students in preparing for life at
Dean. Students work with their Success & Career Advisor,
faculty, and staff to make the most of the college experience so
that when they graduate, they have a resume of accomplishments and
experiences that will make them as competitive as possible in the
job and/or graduate school market. Through a series of
career-preparation courses and career-intensive experiences
required by every major, combined with co-curricular involvement,
students will develop their career mindset - the ability to
understand where they are now, see where they want to go next and
design and implement a plan to get there.
All instructors will receive a course charter with course
objectives and outcomes, as well as the syllabi used by other
instructors teaching the same courses in the program. Initial
training, as well as on-going support, is available for all DCA 200
instructors from the DCA team.
The course description is as follows:
Internship Connections: Creating Your Plan (DCA 200) is
the third in a series of DCA career-preparation courses, and all
Dean College students complete it in their sophomore year. In this
pre-internship preparation course, students will continue to refine
their career objectives and develop and practice the essential
skills needed for employment. Students will also research, apply
to, and prepare to be successful in their internship, a graduation
requirement in all majors. The course also teaches students
about other career-experience opportunities available to them
through Dean College. Each section meets for 50-minutes
There are 3 sections of DCA 200 available for the first Quarter
(September 8-October 22) and 2 sections of DCA available for the
