DALLAS – Each of the seven colleges in the Dallas County Community College District will hold an adjunct faculty job fair to find qualified persons who are interested in teaching part time. Those seven colleges – Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake and Richland – will host the job fair on Sat., May 18, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Interested persons should bring copies of their resumes and transcripts to the college where they would like to interview. Subjects and adjunct teaching needs vary from college to college, so participants can check online to identify where their areas of expertise are needed by visiting www.dcccd.edu; click on the “Adjunct faculty jobs fair” item under the calendar of events. College addresses, building locations and room numbers are available on that site.
To teach credit classes for the colleges in the district, adjunct instructors must hold a master’s degree which includes 18 hours in that specific teaching discipline. Transcripts from foreign institutions must be evaluated based on U.S. standards before they are submitted.
Persons interested in teaching developmental education courses must have a bachelor’s degree in the subject area or a bachelor’s degree and “significant course” work in the subject at the undergraduate level. Additionally, they must have high school or college teaching experience in the subject matter; graduate-level courses in pedagogy related to the teaching field may be substituted for teaching experience.
Additional certifications may be required to teach in certain specialized fields.
Individuals who want more information and who are interested in visiting one of the adjunct teaching job fairs should call the college where they plan to apply.
