American University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-line position at the Associate Professor rank beginning August 1, 2019. Depending on the qualifications, the appointee to this position may be recommended to tenure at the time of hiring, subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees. The individual selected for this position will have a faculty appointment in the School of Education (SoE) and an affiliation as the Associate Director of the Center for Teaching, Research & Learning (CTRL), a university-wide, faculty development center. As an affiliate appointee, the faculty member will be in a position to directly connect research to instructional design, assessment, and evaluation of learning, and implementation of evidence-based practices in teaching in higher education.

As a faculty member in SoE, the individual is expected to maintain an active, externally-funded research program, contribute to teaching, primarily online graduate-level courses (including in the EdD program), and advise and mentor students. As Associate Director of CTRL, the individual is expected to provide leadership and guidance in adapting best practices in teaching and learning, primarily through their work with instructional designers. To support the dual roles of this position, the faculty member will have a reduced teaching load.
