No Duties and Responsibilities
The School of Education ( SOE ) at Loyola University Chicago invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track position as clinical assistant professor of teacher education with an initial three-year appointment. This individual will join the faculty in the SOE’s Teaching and Learning (T&L) program area, which runs Loyola’s CAEP -accredited teacher education program, TLLSC (Teaching, Learning and Leading with Schools and Communities).

The selected individual will play a key role in ongoing social justice initiatives shaped around the SOE’s conceptual framework and mission. We seek candidates who will collaborate with colleagues across the program, SOE, and larger university to build an anti-racist teacher education program. Candidates will also demonstrate a strong commitment to urban education and dedication to serving a historically minoritized student population consistent with Loyola’s commitment to advancing social justice through transformative education.

Credentials, background, and teaching experiences in the following areas are critical:

· Elementary education with experience in K-2 education
· Culturally responsive and anti-racist pedagogy, along with a social justice lens on educational psychology, child development, and educational policy.
· Serving diverse populations including children with disabilities and emergent bilingual students
· Teacher education and clinical supervision experience are also critical given that TLLSC modules use an apprenticeship approach to building the knowledge and skills of future teachers.

The primary responsibilities of this position include the following:
  • Maintaining a 4/3 teaching load (the equivalent of seven three-hour courses or 21 credit hours) of undergraduate and graduate teacher education courses and modules. Courses are offered in university classrooms, while modules are field-based learning experiences which primarily are taught within partner sites. Enrolled students are pursuing Illinois teaching licensure in early childhood, elementary, secondary, and/or special education.
  • Teaching and program leadership of integrated and sequential modules focusing on our program, learning and developmental theory, teacher identity development, and teaching for social justice. These largely involve generalist modules for students with a variety of educational interests who have not yet chosen a specialty area.
  • Teaching in elementary-focused courses and modules focusing on inclusive early elementary education, including methods across the content areas.
  • Fulfilling the service responsibilities of a clinical professor, including advising of students, supporting our accreditation process, continual service to T&L, the SOE, the larger university, community, and profession. This involves continual collaboration with T&L faculty across specialty areas in efforts to provide student supports, maintain high quality programming, and improve TLLSC .
  • Research and publication are not required, but opportunities for collaborative research are available and encouraged.
  • Maintaining and enhancing existing partnerships with schools and community agencies. This includes building partnerships with teachers and administrators to support field-based teaching and learning.

  1. Earned doctorate in Teacher Education, Curriculum and Instruction or other related fields, preferably from a CAEP accredited program.
