If you would like to teach University 100 in fall 2013, please review the information on this webpage to ensure that you meet the application deadline. There are two separate pools: one for University 100 (no specialization) and the other for University 100 serving students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Complete information for each pool is available in the relevant linked document listed below. Possible additional assignments may be available from the first pool (no specialization) for sections of University 100 offered in Spring 2014 and also in Summer 2014 as part of the Strong Start six-week session.
Priority consideration will be given to applicants who meet this year's announced deadline. We will file all late applications (those received after 3/15/2013), but we will only review those late files if the pool of qualified applicants is insufficient to meet our needs. We will acknowledge on-time applications by email beginning March 18, 2013.
Note: the pdf documents on this page can be viewed online using free Adobe Acrobat Reader software.
All applicants should follow the Application Process, which is outlined in each announcement.
Faculty who have taught U100 recently need not resend materials (such as letters of recommendation) that we still have on file (given that the personnel policies in Section 700 explain that we keep personnel materials from U100 faculty for five years). However, Section 700 also suggests that faculty should reapply if they wish to be considered for the coming year's openings, particularly given our qualification requiring "Demonstrated competence using Moodle's administration block, discussion forums, and links to files and websites." (See information in next section on "Ways . . . to Demonstrate Basic Moodle Competence.")
Of course, updates (such as additional experience, professional development, or education) to existing files are always welcome.
You can find further information about University 100 on the University 100 website, including the course description, the student learning outcomes, and a map of the core showing key course topics. You may also contact Cheryl Spector, University 100 course director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone in the office of Academic First Year Experiences at 818-677-6535.
Note: applicants interested in teaching University 100 in the EOP Transitional/Bridge Programs should contact José Luis Vargas: email@example.com
Whether you're a Moodle expert or a real rookie, here are four different ways you can demonstrate the basic Moodle competence called for in the UNIV 100 position announcement:
In 2013, University 100 faculty & graduate student mentors will be invited to participate in a two-hour course overview. Additional UNIV 100-sponsored professional development activities that focus on teaching CSUN freshmen will also be available in late spring and summer 2013.
