Call for Facilitators: Summer 2020 Fusion Course Sessions – June 15

Posted by Campus Compact on June 9, 2020

This summer, Campus Compact and Maine Campus Compact are offering an online teaching and learning curriculum, the Fusion Course, which aims to provide critical training and support for faculty as they adapt to online teaching and offers instruction for how to integrate community engagement methodologies into existing curricula to improve the quality of course delivery and foster student engagement.

Through this faculty development course, faculty learn how to infuse community based-learning components into online courses to give students hands-on, real-world experiences that will strengthen learning, create connections to the larger community, and improve student retention rates.

Co-Facilitator Position Description

Campus Compact is seeking to hire skilled co-facilitators for our Fusion Course sessions. The main objective of the facilitator role is to provide support and deliver instruction on how to integrate community-based learning pedagogy into an online classroom setting. The curriculum for this course is currently being finalized, and most elements will be delivered asynchronously, as participants self-pace their learning and complete assignments autonomously. The facilitator will deliver the synchronous components: the live sessions; drop-in office hours; and online discussions.  In addition, the facilitator will help provide feedback on the participants’ assignments as well as their infused course blueprints. There will be a maximum of 40 faculty participants per session.

Facilitators must be able to commit to 20 hours a week during two distinct two-week sessions (one in early July, the other in early August) as well as 40 hours during an accelerated one-week session in late July.

Learn more and apply:

Compensation: $2,000 per facilitator for each two-week session; $2,000 per facilitator for one-week accelerated session

The initial review of applications will begin on June 15th, 2020, and continue until positions are filled. 

Applications must include:

  • Detailed CV or resume
  • Cover letter outlining your experience and competency facilitating faculty development related to community-engaged pedagogy and practice in an online classroom setting
  • Brief statement (roughly 150-200 words) summarizing the significance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in your own personal or professional life
  • 2-3 minute video segment example or demonstration of your online teaching or facilitation

For additional questions about this opportunity, please contact Sally Slovenski, Executive Director, Maine Campus Compact,
