The Experimental College invites you to be a Visiting Lecturer for the Fall 2016 semester. You will have the opportunity to design undergraduate elective courses , explore interdisciplinary subjects , examine contemporary issues and ideas, use innovative teaching methods , and teach evening classes. Advanced graduate students are always looking for opportunities to teach in their area of expertise, and the Experimental College at Tufts University is a place where that can happen. Up to twenty-five instructors are selected each semester to teach at the Experimental College, and they can attest to the unique and rewarding experience of designing and teaching a course to highly motivated undergraduate students.
The ExCollege offers a full range of largely new courses every semester – on an elective basis – to Tufts undergraduates. The courses are intended to provide an alternative to the traditional departmental curricula by presenting interdisciplinary or contemporary subjects. Classes are usually kept to less than twenty students and are highly discussion and participation oriented. An applicant whose proposal is approved will become a Visiting Lecturer for the semester, will receive a stipend, and will have access to university facilities. Advanced graduate students and adjunct faculty are encouraged to apply online by March 11, 2016.
