Instructional opportunity for an online research methodologies class

My name is Melanie Pruit, and am an instructional specialist for Richland Collegiate High School on the Richland College campus in  Dallas, TX. A friend of mine at UTD referred me to you. I have an instructional opportunity for an online research methodologies class beginning in January 2018.  I thought you might be able to spread the word to any graduate students with a strong background in humanities, especially as that involves writing. Someone with teaching experience is definitely preferred. To clarify, the class is online, the curriculum is already developed, and the target student population would be 11th graders who are concurrently taking college classes.  A bachelor degree is required.

If you know, or think you might know, someone who would be interested and could be a suitable candidate, please let me know or have that someone contact me at this email address.

Thanks for your consideration,
Melanie Pruit

Protect Manager opportunity in Digital Humanities at IPRH

Dear Colleagues and friends,

I am writing to share a link to a Project Manager position we are advertising at the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH). It’s been developed in connection with a “Training in Digital Methods for Humanists” pilot project we have support for from our provost and vice-chancellor for research. It’s also been imagined as a career diversity opportunity for a PhD in the humanities: https://jobs.illinois.edu/academic-job-board/job-details?jobID=86156&job=project-manager-illinois-program-for-research-in-the-humanities-a1700625

Please spread the word amongst your career diversity networks, and let me know if you have questions.

Thanks!
Antoinette

After graduation, how will you launch a high-impact career in Nevada?

Nevada Teacher Corps trains recent college graduates to become exceptional, certified elementary school teachers. Our fast-paced seven-week summer training program focuses on the essential skills, knowledge, and mindsets that teachers need most to start strong. Fellows will repeatedly practice foundational classroom management and instructional techniques, receive direct feedback from skilled coaches, and must pass a series of evaluations to be eligible to start teaching in the fall.
