This position is covered under the collective bargaining agreement between the U-M and the Lecturers Employee Organization, AFL-CIO, which contains and settles all matters with respect to wages, benefits, hours and other terms and conditions of employment.
The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures (RLL) in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan seeks applicants for a full time Lecturer III position to begin August 29, 2022. This is a non-tenure track position with a university year appointment.
We are seeking a first-year Spanish Coordinator to oversee Spanish 100, 101 and 102 language courses. The Department envisions Spanish 100, 101 and 102 courses as an opportunity to introduce students to first year courses and to blend language learning with content that aligns with LSA’s and RLL’s mission of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The coordinator will lead a group of instructors – other Lecturers and Graduate Student Instructors employed by RLL – and will be responsible for creating all the syllabi for each course.
The Spanish 100, 101 and 102 Coordinator will closely mentor instructors as administrators and language educators through leading course meetings and workshops, creating common syllabi, providing sample classroom and assessment materials, and serving as a resource. The Spanish 100, 101 and 102 Coordinator will work closely with the team of Spanish coordinators and under the Director and Assistant Director of Elementary Language Programs in RLL regarding programmatic and curricular matters, and closely with the Spanish 103 and 231 Coordinator to align objectives and outcomes. A typical full-time (100% effort) teaching load for a Lecturer III in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts is three courses per semester, or the equivalent in other duties. The coordinator will receive a course release for every 10 sections coordinated in a given term.
Qualified candidates will have prior experience in administration and/or course coordination and 5 or more years of experience teaching Spanish at a U.S.-based university. Familiarity with the communicative method of language instruction strongly preferred. Experience developing courses and materials related to themes of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, as well as training in the field of DEI strongly preferred. M.A. or Ph.D. in Spanish, Applied Linguistics, Language Pedagogy, or related field preferred. The successful candidate will be a dynamic teacher committed to excellence in both foreign language teaching and methodologies.
Please submit all of your application materials as a single PDF in this order: 1) a cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) a DEI statement (an appraisal of your goals and plans around diversity, equity, and inclusion including: the strategies you use in your teaching; how you engage in DEI efforts beyond the classroom; how your experiences align with the DEI mission of the University of Michigan), 4) a teaching statement, 5) a copy of all transcripts, and 6) student course evaluations, if available.
