Brandeis University Lecturer in Education in Waltham, Massachusetts

The Brandeis Education Program engages in the practical application of our scholarly work. Our approach to teaching and learning is driven by four pursuits: Teaching for Social Justice, Teaching as Inquiry, Teaching ALL Learners, and Teaching for Understanding. At Brandeis, ?teaching for social justice? isn?t just a slogan or lofty ideal; it?s about teachers? everyday interactions with students and their daily work in schools. Whether in the university or in pk-12 schools, we focus on the students - who they are, what they bring, and how they think. About the Position The Brandeis Teacher Education Program seeks an Instructor for the undergraduate course: ED 104a Pedagogy in the Discipline: Teaching & Learning MATHEMATICS. This is a four credit course to be taught in Fall, 2024. The course meets in the late afternoons, once per week for 3 hours for a full semester. There is some flexibility to meet twice per week instead. This appointment is to a position that is in a collective bargaining unit represented by SEIU Local 509. About the Course This is a teaching methods course for students who are pursuing a license in teaching math grades 6-12; it is also open to graduate students interested in teaching in post-secondary education; and math majors curious about teaching and learning.
