I am seeking a dedicated and qualified online adjunct(s) to potentially teach Business Law I or possibly a graduate course in International Business Law at Texas A&M University-Central Texas in the upcoming spring term and beyond (including summers). I presently have tried to manage all of these sections, but I need to back off my teaching load in order to concentrate on my duties as department chair. Adding to the demand is the fact that we have been growing at an annual rate of 20% over the last three years. I use the Miller/Jentz text Business Law Today: Comprehensive Ed. I basically cover chapters 1-6, 8-19, 21-23. If you are unfamiliar with the text, this is Legal Background, Con. Law, Dispute Resolution, Torts, IP, Criminal Law, Ethics, Contracts, UCC (Sales), Warranties and Products Liability, and Negotiability/Banking.  For the graduate course in International Business Law, I use International Law and its Environment by Schaffer, Agusti, Dhooge and Earle.

The following are essential qualifications:

1.       Experience teaching online and with Blackboard as a Learning Management System

2.       An earned J.D.  from an ABA accredited Law School

As a part of the assignment, you would also need to follow my guidance on material coverage (chapters), complete our required online instructor training program (can be done remotely in a couple of days), and demonstrate the ability to maintain an active instructor presence in the online classroom. The instructor’s experiences, explanations, and feedback are vital to the online learning environment. Demonstration of this skill will be required and we can discuss how this can be accomplished. The course(s) will either be 16 weeks, starting January 13th, or 8 weeks, starting March 17th. I have a basic template that may be altered or you may construct your own after we talk about qualifications, experience and preferences.

 Adjunct positions are subject to demand and the needs of the university. As such, they can be terminated at anytime and teaching one semester does not guarantee employment in subsequent semesters. An application may be found at: http://www.tamuct.edu/departments/humanresources/employmentopportunities.php. Please email me at loafman@ct.tamus.edu if you have any questions or want to discuss possibilities prior to applying. Any applicant would also need to email me a brief statement of their online teaching philosophy and qualifications for the position as described above.
