PWSC provides instruction through a variety of formats and structures. Adjunct faculty often teach by distance delivery, either asynchronously through Blackboard or a similar platform, or synchronously with Collaborate or desktop video conferencing software. Those teaching in classrooms often connect to multiple sites by video for synchronous instruction, depending on the discipline and nature of the course. Additionally, adjunct instructors may be appointed to teach dual credit courses consisting entirely of secondary students who are eligible to complete college-level coursework, and appointment terms may reflect high school academic semester schedules.

Position locations:

Valdez, Copper River Region, and Cordova

Knowledge, Skills, Abilities: Knowledge of accepted instruction methods. Ability to communicate effectively both orally and in writing. Public speaking skills. Customer service skills. Preferred Experience & Education:
2 years relevant experience.

Candidates will be evaluated on suitability of their academic qualifications, past teaching experience, and potential for providing high quality instruction to undergraduate students. Demonstrated subject expertise and experience relevant to teaching the specific course content is preferred. Candidates should be willing to work with distance delivery technologies such as Blackboard and videoconferencing equipment; preference will be given to applicants with experience in these areas. Preference will also be given to Alaskan residents or those residing in Alaska during the semester in which they intend to teach.

At least one year of college instruction, preferably within the discipline of instruction, is strongly preferred, but applicants with no formal college-level teaching experience will be considered.

Required Experience & Education:

A master's degree or higher in the specific discipline of instruction, from an accredited institution of higher education, is required for standard Outdoor Leadership & Recreation courses. If applicant's master's degree is in a non-Outdoor Leadership & Recreation field, 18 minimum graduate credits in the specific instruction discipline must have been completed, with related professional experience in the field.

A Wilderness First Responder certification is also required. A valid driver's license and clean driving record in compliance with UA safe driving criteria.

Salary Information:

This is a part-time, for credit, adjunct faculty position. Salary is based on experience as well as the number of previous semesters teaching experience within the University of Alaska.

Special Instructions to Applicants:

Successful applicants must provide official transcripts documenting academic credentials required for the position as a condition of employment. Applicants must attach a cover letter, resume, list of up to three references, and request a transcript that documents their graduate credits to be sent to the PWSC Office of Academic Affairs.

Need for adjunct instructors is determined on a per-semester basis. Successful acceptance into the adjunct pool does not guarantee an offer of a contract, though qualified applicants will be held in the pool for multiple semesters in the chance that a need for instructors in their discipline may arise. This is a pooled position, which means that the position remains open over the entire academic year. 

*To be eligible for this position, applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States without restriction.  Applicants who now or may in the future require visa sponsorship to work in the United States are not eligible.
