Library Instructor (Queens College, CUNY)- Flushing, NY

Library Instructor Position

Queens College Library, City University of New York

The Queens College Library (QCL) seeks adjuncts to teach the 2-credit (30 contact hours) course LIBR 110: Information in the Digital Age in the Fall 2024 semester. Successful candidates may be offered the opportunity to teach up to two sections. The course is a long-standing collaboration between QCL and the Percy E. Sutton Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge (SEEK) Program, and is offered exclusively to students enrolled in the SEEK Program. About LIBR 110: Information in the Digital Age Students are challenged to think critically about information: where it comes from, how one finds it, how it’s used in the world, and what one can create with it. Students learn how to find and use (and cite) relevant sources. Additionally, students examine how information resources are structured, identify and critique the markers of authority, and reflect on and improve their own research practices. The curriculum for this course is set by QCL, although instructors have some flexibility in shaping their syllabi. Instructors are supported by the Instructional Design Librarian and Teaching & Learning Committee. About the SEEK Program Since 1966, the SEEK program has provided access to college for equity-deserving students whose high schools may not have prepared them for the rigors of college, but who demonstrate great academic promise and potential to succeed. With a population of over 1,000 students, SEEK is the largest and most diverse cohort-based program at CUNY. Students receive holistic support from admission to graduation, from a dedicated team of professionals. This model allows students to meet and often exceed the academic performance and retention numbers of their campus peers. Schedule A course meets once per week for 115min. Sections are offered on: Wednesdays 10:05am-12:00pm, or 1:30-3:25pm, or 3:55-6:00pm, and on Thursdays 1:30-3:25pm. Classes run from 08/28/2024 until 12/21/2024 with final grades required by 12/27/2024. Location LIBR 110 is delivered in the hybrid synchronous instructional model, meaning that the instructor will have a mix of in-person and online sessions.
