Description

Walden University is an accredited institution that has been serving the higher education needs of professionals for more than 40 years. Offered online, Walden's doctoral, master's, and bachelor's degree programs are designed to help students achieve their goals so that, as graduates, they can help advance the lives of others.

Walden continues its tradition of quality as it grows. Walden's School of Psychology Ph.D program seeks faculty members who specialize in Industrial/Organizational Psychology to commit to part-time positions as doctoral committee members. This is an opportunity for candidates to share their professional experience and academic knowledge with students across the country and around the world. With a computer and a high-speed Internet connection, the faculty member can teach on his or her own schedule while maintaining other professional and personal commitments.

GENERAL SUMMARY
Walden University seeks a dynamic, innovative faculty member for this contributing (part-time) position in the School of Psychology. Key responsibilities of this position include mentoring student research.


What to Expect as a Walden Faculty Member

Faculty members educate Walden University students by effectively and proficiently using online technology and resources so that knowledge, information, feedback, and critique are imparted to and shared with students in thoughtful, carefully formulated, well written, and timely communications. This is accomplished in an environment that is respectful of the student, the faculty member, Walden University, and the discipline in which the faculty member is involved.

Training
All new faculty members receive specific training from Walden University in the techniques of online teaching; use of an electronic learning platform; specifics of the policies, procedures, and degree programs of the School or College in which they are going to teach; socialization into the Walden University culture; assessment of academic integrity of student work (including use of www.turnitin.com); and research supervision of theses and dissertations. Teaching and mentorship assignments are contingent upon successful completion of required training. During the first term of teaching, faculty members may be assigned a faculty peer mentor (senior colleague) as an extension of their new instructor training. Peer mentors will continue to support instruction and provide peer reviews of the classroom on a regular basis.

Course Teaching/Availability

Faculty members are assigned courses, which are taught using the Learning Management System (LMS), and are responsible for interacting with students within the LMS. Discussion Boards for classrooms are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Faculty members are expected to be in the classroom a minimum of 4 days per week and responses to student questions must be posted within 48 hours. The university suggests regular and predictable availability, such as online office hours or regular online chats; office hours may be required based on program or college policy.

Research Mentorship

Faculty mentors will be assigned to work one-on-one with students to help students meet the research requirements of their degree. Faculty members are responsible for the provision of timely feedback, approval, assessment, and evaluation of each student's work within the classroom.

Residencies
Graduate-level faculty may be invited to attend Residencies held domestically or internationally, where they will teach face-to-face intensives and colloquia, and facilitate school and university-wide discussions. Contributing (part-time) faculty may be invited to participate but are not required to attend.

EDUCATION and EXPERIENCE



The successful candidate will have:


  • Earned a doctorate in the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology or Organizational Psychology from an accredited university.


  • Possess a significant record of intellectual and professional contributions to the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology or Organizational Psychology

  • A minimum of three years of teaching experience at the degree level of the program, with at least one year of online teaching, is preferred.

  • A commitment to supporting student success in a diverse population of adult learners in a distance learning environment.

  • Experience teaching, advising and mentoring; commitment to the promotion of applied research and the recruitment and development of a diverse faculty; excellent leadership; communication, team, and human relations skills.

  • Experience with distance learning/ Learning Management systems preferred.

  • A commitment to the social change mission of Walden University.

  • May perform other duties and responsibilities that management may deem necessary from time to time.




WORK ENVIRONMENT

Work is performed primarily in a standard office environment but may involve exposure to moderate noise levels. Work involves the operation of personal computer equipment for 6–8 hours daily and includes physical demands associated with a traditional office setting (e.g., walking, standing, communicating, and other physical functions as necessary).

Technology Requirements
Faculty members are expected to have a personal computer with virus protection and Internet access. Walden University provides a Walden e-mail account and access to the learning platform, password-protected faculty sections of the website, university and college listservs, and other faculty communications tools.
