Penn State Altoona invites applications for a part-time Instructor position to teach one or two sections of CAS 100A (Effective Speech) for the fall 2019 semester. The successful candidate will teach pragmatic principles of communication as part of Penn State’s general education curriculum, with classroom instruction devoted primarily to the preparation and delivery of speeches, with some attention to small group discussion and message analysis. Instructors may devote classroom time to the role of speech in civic and political discourse, explore specific professional speech genres, or examine the implementation of rhetorical strategies in new media or other specific contexts, for example, as an individual course focus. The start date for this position is August 2019, with the possibility of continuance. Applicants must hold a Master’s degree in a relevant field or possess commensurate practical experience in public speaking instruction. To be considered, please submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae. All applications will be considered until the position is filled.
