SPRINGFIELD — Lincoln Land Community College is seeking individuals interested in teaching part-time at the college and will hold information fairs Wednesday, Nov. 2, 6-8 p.m., at the Springfield campus, and one week later, Nov. 9, 6-8 p.m., at LLCC Outreach Centers in Taylorville, Litchfield and Jacksonville.
“Teaching part-time at a community college is great way to supplement your income and share the knowledge you’ve gained through education and work,” said Jason Dockter, Ph.D., associate vice president of academic services.
Dockter said part-time teaching can appeal to retirees, those currently in the workforce and those who have just earned a graduate degree. Prior teaching experience is preferred but not required.
“Even if you’ve never thought about teaching, we invite you to come out and learn what’s involved. You can even apply on the spot if you bring a cover letter, resume and unofficial college transcripts.”
Part-time faculty are required to have earned a master’s degree with at least 18 hours in the subject being taught. Work experience can substitute for a degree in career and technical fields.
LLCC currently has available positions for part-time faculty in multiple fields including communication/public speaking, English composition and humanities, history and sociology, as well as in the career/technical fields of certified nursing assistant, welding, auto tech, electrical/industrial maintenance and hospitality/culinary arts.
