Al-Quds Bard, Palestine
Part-time Graduate Faculty- Master of Arts (MAT)Employer Website: http://apply.interfolio.com/112567
Now in its fourteenth year of operation, Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences (AQB) is an innovative program introducing a liberal arts undergraduate education to the West Bank, with an enrollment of approximately 331 undergraduate and graduate students. AQB’s undergraduate program, taught in English, is rigorous, culminating in a two-semester independent senior project, which, in many fields is a demanding research paper. The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program requires an equal amount of advanced study in the elected academic discipline (Mathematics, Biology, English, History, or Sciences), and in key education courses that challenge teachers to apply the results of research and pedagogical analysis to the actual work of teaching. Graduates of AQB receive two degrees: a BA or a MAT from Al-Quds University and a BA or MAT from Bard College (New York). Al-Quds Bard College is one of 15 Al-Quds University (AQU) faculties in Abu Dis. The College is also part of a global network of higher education institutions, the Open Society University Network (OSUN).
The MAT program works closely with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), an innovative hub for engagement in teaching and learning. It is a central pillar for professional development for teachers and faculty.
AQB MAT program invites applications for part-time faculty across all MAT disciplines, including English language, Math, Sciences, Biology, History, and core education courses. For more details about MAT courses, please visit the MAT website at: https://bard.alquds.edu/academics/mat.html
We seek faculty whose teaching methods are student-centered, involving students in active discussion and group tasks to develop their reading, writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills in English.
