Walden continues its tradition of quality as it grows. Walden's School of Health Sciences seeks faculty members for the B.S. in Healthcare Management Tempo Competency-Based Learning program to commit to part-time positions. This is an opportunity for candidates to share their professional experience and academic knowledge with students across the country and around the world. With a computer and a high-speed Internet connection, the faculty member can teach on their own schedule while maintaining other professional and personal commitments.
Walden University seeks a dynamic, innovative faculty member for this contributing (part-time) position in the B.S. in Healthcare Management Tempo Competency-Based Learning program. Key responsibilities of this position include teaching courses in the following content areas: healthcare quality and safety, health informatics, human resources, and/or health insurance and reimbursement.
What to Expect as a Walden Faculty Member
Faculty members educate Walden University students by effectively and proficiently using online technology and resources so that knowledge, information, feedback, and critique are imparted to and shared with students in thoughtful, carefully formulated, well written, and timely communications. This is accomplished in an environment that is respectful of the student, the faculty member, Walden University, and the discipline in which the faculty member is involved.
All new faculty members receive specific training from Walden University in the techniques of online teaching; use of an electronic learning platform; specifics of the policies, procedures, and degree programs of the School or College in which they are going to teach; socialization into the Walden University culture; and assessment of academic integrity of student work (including use of www.turnitin.com). Teaching assignments are contingent upon successful completion of required training. During the first term of teaching, faculty members may be assigned a faculty peer mentor (senior colleague) as an extension of their new instructor training. Peer mentors will continue to support instruction and provide peer reviews of the classroom on a regular basis.
Faculty members are assigned courses, which are taught using the Learning Management System (LMS) Brightspace and are responsible for interacting with students within the LMS. Discussion Boards for classrooms are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Faculty members are expected to be in their assigned courses a minimum of 5 days per week and respond to student questions within 48 hours. The university suggests regular and predictable availability, such as online office hours or regular online chats; office hours may be required based on program or college policy.
To perform this job successfully, an individual must be able to perform each essential duty satisfactorily. The requirements listed are representative of the knowledge, skill, and/or ability required. Incumbents will be evaluated, in part, based on performance of each essential function. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform essential functions.
Faculty members must be appropriately credentialed, possess an earned degree from an accredited institution or an institution that is recognized by a country's ministry of education in the discipline being taught, and may be expected to be licensed or license-eligible in order to teach in specific programs.
