The Faculty of Arts at Mount Allison University invites applications to develop and teach two non-credit
online academic transition modules. One will focus on personal productivity and time management; the
second on university-level writing skills. Each module will be delivered online, will contain approximately
five hours of educational material, and will be designed for a-synchronous delivery with periodic
instructor contact. The prospective audience is students in transition to university at Mount Allison after
leaving high school or who have been away from formal learning for a period of time. The aim of each
course is to develop competencies that can help students succeed at the post-secondary level. Students
taking these courses will be enrolled in a range of subject areas from the pure sciences to social science
and humanities to creative arts.
The successful applicant must have completed a master’s degree and must be familiar with post-
secondary education, have taught at that level, and have experience in the module areas being
designed. Our goal is to launch these courses in early July and be available until the fall.
To apply to develop and teach one or the other of these non-credit modules, please send a letter of
application (not longer than one page) and a curriculum vita that lists at least two references by email
attachment to Dr. Andrew Nurse, Interim Dean of Arts, Mount Allison University at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of candidates will begin on June 12, 2020.
