Instructors sought for NIC center located in Bonners Ferry
The North Idaho College center located in Bonners Ferry is scheduled to open this summer and qualified individuals are needed as instructors.
Instructors are sought to teach courses in a variety of subjects, including communications, art, psychology, sociology, creative writing, English, economics, history, math, accounting, human anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, medical transcription, medical software applications, legal issues in health care and medical coding.
“We are seeking instructors from the Bonners Ferry area to teach several face-to-face classes this fall,” said NIC Director of Distance Education Candace Wheeler. "We can rely on using interactive video conferencing technology to utilize NIC instructors on the main campus if we have to, but our preference would be to start the center off on the right foot by offering face-to-face instruction for students.”
Five credit classes will be offered fall semester of 2006 and a total of seven credit classes will be offered in the spring. A master’s degree is required for most academic disciplines with different criteria for some skills curriculum. Part-time faculty with a bachelor’s degree will be considered in some circumstances. An NIC department chair will review the candidate’s qualifications.
To apply, visit the NIC Human Resources website
and follow the application instructions.
Several noncredit workforce training classes and community education classes will also be held in fall of 2006 and spring of 2007.
Individuals with knowledge in a particular subject area and a willingness and ability to teach in a group setting are welcome to apply to teach personal interest classes through NIC’s community education department. Many community education instructors enjoy sharing their talents and hobbies and do not need a degree, special training or certification to do so.
Individuals applying to teach a for-credit course should call the NIC Human Resources Office at (208) 769-3304. Those wishing to apply to teach a personal interest class should call the Workforce Training Center at (208) 769-3333.For More Information
