Tired of singing the same old song about teaching, learning, and technology to an apathetic audience? Want to liberate yourself from those degrading improv gigs in the campus commons to anyone who will listen? I bet you are, and I know you do. So why aren’t you applying for Director of the UMW Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning position? I mean, come on, Mary Washington provides a unique experience for anyone who is deeply passionate about teaching and learning, especially if you think these practices in relationship to emerging technologies. We don’t only have an absolutely amazing faculty committed to exploring and experimenting with their pedagogy out in the open, but we also have a crack crew of instructional technology folks (if I must say so myself) which is just an added bonus.
So, this is my shameless plea to anyone out there (or anyone out there who knows someone else out there) who might be interested in getting on board with a bunch of punks who won’t deign to beg for beer money, but rather just go out there and snatch it. Real innovation, real fast, and a faculty to back you up, that’s what we got—and we are serious about what we do. So, think about it, but make it quick because applications are being accepted until 5:00 p.m., January 30, 2009.
