Depending on the performance of the individual hired, multi-year renewals are possible.
They seek to hire a colleague who can teach a wide range of Communication courses to support our health communication certificate, such as health communication, designing health messages, and advanced health communication, as well as introductory level communication courses required for the major and courses supporting one or more of the Department’s pathways in global and intercultural communication, media and cultural studies, and strategic communication. Above all else, we seek a dynamic teacher committed to best practices in student-centered pedagogy and advancing the internationalization of communication via hands-on, skills-based, experiential and problem-based learning. The ICB is a unique international collaboration embodying best practices in international and intercultural communication, so the ideal candidate will function not only as a classroom teacher and student advocate, but as a cultural ambassador helping to merge U.S.-style pedagogies with Chinese cultural practices.
