We seek an advanced scholar/teacher (associate or full professor) with administrative experience and a record of significant publication and exemplary teaching to guide our first-year writing program. The successful candidate will rotate through this administrative position (three-year term) and, while working in this capacity, spearhead curriculum development and teacher training for graduate instructors. In addition, this individual will teach and develop courses for our M.A. track in Composition and Rhetoric and serve on related thesis committees. Opportunities to teach in and/or assist with our professional writing minor degree program are also available. Area of specialization is open, although candidates with strong backgrounds in rhetorical theory and/or the history of rhetoric, composition research methodology, assessment, electronic writing, or composition pedagogy are especially welcome. The expected teaching load for this position is 2/1.
The course itself was designed by a partnership of high school teachers and CSU faculty. The original task force trained another set of teachers to work as trainers, and teams consisting of one CSU person and on high school person went out to train still more teachers, in an arrangment that some have jokingly compared to a pyramid scheme. This year, we have brought the community colleges into the mix as well.
