The School of Professional & Extended Studies (SPExS) invites
applications for adjunct faculty to teach a 3 credit online
graduate course Evaluation Quantitative Methods
responsibilities include equipping students with the required skill
set, facilitating online discussions, assessing student performance
and preparing students to be successful leaders in their chosen
profession. Courses are asynchronous, fully online, and offered
over 8 week terms. Adjunct faculty are expected to hold online
office hours, provide assignment feedback, and consult with the
Program Director on the progress of the class.
This course provides opportunities for students to apply
statistical measures to test evaluation hypotheses. Students
explore the use of statistical software in managing and
manipulating data and the proper production of descriptive and
analytical reports that meet the guidelines and expectations of
professional practitioners in the field. Students develop an
understanding of an often intimidating and difficult subject with
an approach that is informative and clear as they are guided
through various statistical procedures, beginning with descriptive
statistics, correlation, graphical representation of data through
inferential techniques, analysis of variance, and more.
The ideal candidate will hold a Masters, PhD or a terminal degree
in an applicable field with at least 5 years of professional
experience. Teaching experience at the college level is highly
preferred though not required. Course assignments and schedules
will depend on the selected candidate's profile and strengths.
Review of applications will be ongoing and are subject to ongoing
budgetary approval and sufficient course enrollment.
