Anne Arundel Community College

Position Summary:

The English department at Anne Arundel Community College seeks a full-time instructor or assistant professor of English who is committed to the ideals of community college education and is eager to join an innovative, highly professional faculty. First-year composition and developmental writing constitute the primary teaching responsibilities, with the possibility of teaching sophomore literature. Teaching load is 5/5 with summer options.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:


With meeting community needs and improving teaching and learning among Anne Arundel Community College’s highest priorities, we are strategically positioned to set and surpass new standards of excellence in our primary teaching and learning mission. Guided by principles that emphasize equity and student success, especially in learning, and continuous improvement for a progressive and vital learning community, we envision AACC as a premier learning organization that is in the vanguard of community college education. As a consequence, we welcome qualified faculty candidates who

  • integrate learning outcomes assessment techniques in their instructional planning, curriculum design, and teaching activities
  • apply informational technology to the teaching and learning process
  • deliver instruction in a variety of formats
  • understand and apply learning organization theory
  • thrive in cross-functional roles
  • make data-driven decisions

While faculty work of 30 faculty load hours an academic year will include primary responsibilities for teaching and assessing learning and for institutional service, advising, and professional development, the college seeks to break the frame that traditionally surrounds faculty assignments, especially since academic divisional needs vary. As such, faculty should expect to integrate with their primary responsibilities some combination of the following,

  1. Creating experiential learning opportunities and assessment techniques, (e.g., work-based and service learning; portfolio assessment, including developing and evaluating learning portfolios; etc.)
  2. Mentoring
    • students from target groups
    • new full-time faculty
    • part-time faculty
  3. Designing, formatting and delivering curriculum for synchronous and asynchronous learning
  4. Training and consulting for workforce initiatives (e.g., for public and corporate partners, etc.)
  5. Developing and implementing community education and extended learning programs
  6. Partnering with colleagues to enhance services to students and the community
    • recruiting and marketing
    • advising with expanded responsibilities
    • devising retention strategies and activities
  7. Strengthening relations and collaborative activities with K-12 and baccalaureate-granting colleagues

Job Requirements

Required Qualifications:

  • Master's or doctoral degree in English, composition, or a closely related field
  • Minimum of 24 credits experience teaching college composition
  • In addition to a cover letter and a CV, candidates must submit an original essay assignment for a composition course that requires students to incorporate research. In addition, candidates should submit a corresponding rubric addressing specifically how the assignment will be assessed.
Preferred Qualifications:

  • Proven excellence as a creative, effective college composition teacher with at least 30 credits experience (community college preferred)
  • Proven excellence in teaching a diverse student body (e.g. underprepared, returning, non-native, first-generation college students)
