EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE
Visiting Lecturers (Non-tenure-track)


The Experimental College at Tufts University seeks adjunct instructors from a range of backgrounds and professions for the Spring 2017 semester. Applicants are asked to design and – if selected – teach small, discussion-based courses that promote active learning and that engage Tufts undergraduates in an exploration of ideas and experiences shaping the world today. Classes that offer critical, and quite often, interdisciplinary contexts form the core of the Experimental College's curriculum. Our mission is to challenge an already motivated set of students and get them thinking in new ways about such important subject areas as current affairs, cultural studies, media, technology, politics, race, gender, law, world religions, environmental concerns, business, healthcare, and ethics. Twenty courses will be chosen from a very competitive pool. Classes meet in the evening, once or twice a week, for a total of 2.5 contact hours per week, over thirteen teaching weeks. While the majority of our courses are taught in a traditional classroom setting at the Tufts Somerville/Medford campus, proposals for online courses have been considered in exceptional cases. The Spring semester begins Thursday, January 19, 2017, and runs through May 1, 2017. For more information, examples of courses offered, and the on-line application link, go to www.excollege.tufts.edu, or call 617-627-3384, or email us at excollege@tufts.edu.
