I went to the interview. I was there very early, but that was good because my driving directions didn’t work and I had to drive around the area and “find” the school myself. I actually drove around it without realizing it was that, since it includes buildings that used to be for something else and still look like those things.
I found the school. Then I walked around campus and found the building. Then I went outside and enjoyed the cool shade and graded papers. That was fun.
There were seven questions I was asked.
These were taped to the desk at the front of the room. They’d been interviewing quite a bit on Monday and Tuesday.
I’ll only be able to go with the simple version. They were far more elegantly stated.
1. Discuss your philosophy of grading, particularly as it impacts revision.
2. What is your experience with dual-credit, honors, distance-education, hybrid, and some other kinds of courses?
3. Tell us about your incorporation of technology in teaching writing and research.
4. Give us examples of your innovation and/or leadership and/or outreach.
5. Tell us about a situation when you worked with a student with special needs.
6. Tell us about a teaching method you used to use that you don’t any more and explain why.
7. What in your teaching and educational experience prepares you for working in an open-enrollment, urban, diversity enriched environment?
