Instructor Profile

The residential learning environment at the Bader International Study Centre (BISC) is characterized by small classes, daily interaction between faculty and students, and a strong emphasis on experiential learning. Applicants for a teaching position should therefore feel comfortable with the fact that they will be in much closer and more frequent contact with students than is common on most university campuses. More specifically, a BISC instructor must be somebody who:

  • Photo of Dr. Scott McLean teaching on Hadrian's Wall in Scotlandenjoys teaching in an international and interdisciplinary learning environment and values exchanging ideas with colleagues from other disciplines;
  • accepts the BISC pedagogy which requires instructors to extend learning beyond the classroom by integrating scheduled field studies into the curriculum and by accompanying students on study trips;
  • appreciates interacting with faculty, staff and students on a daily basis and enjoys living in close proximity with students;
  • would like to become involved in extracurricular activities;
  • Faculty should be accessible to provide appropriate tutorial support as necessary to any student who needs such support;
  • is willing to assist the student support staff in emergency situations.

It is also expected that instructors will be available for consultation on a regular basis with the Executive Director, the Academic Director and the administrative staff of the BISC regarding academic and non-academic issues.
