ESL Faculty Associate – UW-Madison

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is looking to hire a faculty associate in the area of English as a second language for its Secondary Level, Teacher Certification Masters Program. This is an exciting opportunity to join UW-Madison to teach in a cutting-edge, accelerated program in the top-ranked Curriculum & Instruction department in the United States.

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction is home to a number of research-based teacher certification programs. These programs are designed around practice-based field experiences in which students observe, assist, and teach in school classrooms and in out-of-school educational programs as they work toward earning their initial educator licenses. The new masters-level program in secondary teacher education is at the forefront of a new approach for preparing teachers in both a content area and in teaching English as a second language. We are seeking a faculty associate to teach core ESL pedagogical methods in the program and to work with the program Field Coordinator and area schools to find appropriate practicum and student teaching placements for program students. 

Candidates should have at least three-years experience teaching school at the secondary level. Candidates should also have excellent interpersonal, teamwork, written and oral communication skills, and an exceptional record of classroom instruction and curricular innovation in ESL methods that can further enhance our secondary teacher certification program.

This faculty position is housed within the Department of Curriculum & Instruction, which is located within the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the flagship campus of the University of Wisconsin System. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction hosts undergraduate and graduate teacher preparation programs, research-oriented graduate programs, and community, state, national, and international educational initiatives. As a part of UW-Madison, we are a diverse community of scholars, researchers, and educators with a commitment to the Wisconsin Idea, supporting an inclusive and diverse community, striving for innovation and excellence. UW-Madison, a public land-grant university, is home to world-class education seeking to solve real-world problems, a vibrant research portfolio, and deep traditions.
