The College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Sciences at North Dakota State University invites applications for an assistant professor of practice. We are searching for an individual with expertise in technology applied to university instruction and interests in health sciences. The primary responsibility of the position is to enhance the quality and reach of health science courses taught across four college departments. The 11-month position will report to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the college and will also be connected to the Department of Distance and Continuing Education (DCE) and the College of Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies. The major responsibility will be to enhance the teaching mission of the college. The college plans to increase the scope of distance education activities and technologies used while producing the highest quality learning experience for students. The college also aspires to improve its assessment activities relative to learning outcomes. The person in this position will be asked to work with faculty and graduate students in the service of these goals and to join in that process with other professionals in DCE. Although the chief responsibility of this position is to enhance teaching in the college, we would also expect the successful candidate to teach, support collaborative research, and to serve on college and university committees related to his/her expertise (i.e. 60% Service, 30% Teaching, 10% Research).
