The Department of World Languages and Literatures at Skidmore
College invites applicants for an instructor of Portuguese in the
Self-Instructional Language Program (SILP). Skidmore seeks to
attract an academically and culturally diverse faculty, especially
those who can contribute to the growing diversity and excellence of
the community through their teaching. In the SILP program, students
work independently and meet with the instructor for 2 hours per
week. The instructor guides students to resources in addition to
the textbook and helps them improve their command of the language
in all four skill sets: reading writing, listening, and speaking.
The successful candidate will teach all levels of the Portuguese
language, especially basic and intermediate.
