Submit your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit your videos via GoogleDrive or Dropbox to email@example.com
Email any questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Resume or CV
- Select an academic article or a long-form magazine article (e.g. Anne-Marie Slaughter’s 2012 essay in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All”). Use them to record a 10-15 minute presentation that covers one of the 3 topics below:
a. Discuss introductions and conclusions – what is their purpose? How can a student craft effective introductions and conclusions? What might students have to learn and unlearn in order to do so?
b. Explain how academic writing is different from other kinds of writing. What distinguishes it from other forms of prose? Address assumptions that students might have about academic writing – dispel the myth that academic writing must be stodgy and impersonal.
c. Teach the students about citations – emphasize the importance of citations and academic integrity, and take them through the basics of one of the following formats: APA, MLA, and Chicago.
Conclude your session by stating 3 clear takeaways. You are free to use whatever resources you like in your video. You do not have to simulate an actual class with student participation; we are interested in what material you choose to teach, and how you teach it.
Specify the article’s title, author and location for our reference.
The students you’re addressing are in their first year of an undergraduate liberal arts program. Most of them will have entered Ashoka from a fairly traditional school system and are not well-acquainted with paper-writing and research – or the liberal arts, for that matter. As an Introduction to Critical Thinking Instructor, your job is to bridge the gap between their high school skillset and the skills they will need to take rigorous, research- and writing-intensive classes in a variety of fields.
- Accompanying your video presentation, submit a one-page lesson plan that specifies:
a. Any preparation that you would have assigned your students before this particular video presentation: any reading or homework relevant to what you will be presenting. Please also include links or excerpts of any material that you’ll be covering in your video.
b. Any follow up work that the students do after your video presentation, such as a homework assignment, or subsequent in-class exercise or project.
- A 300-word response to one of the following prompts:
d. What is the role of private, liberal arts universities in India today?
e. How has the pandemic shifted your teaching, learning and/or working methodologies?
- Names of 3 referees and their contact details
📅 IMPORTANT DATE
- The deadline for submitting a complete application is: June 26th, 2021, 5 p.m.
