As required by the Coordinating Board, faculty teaching dual credit EN140 "shall typically have a master's degree" in English. In addition, the Department of English requires the following information, documents, and qualifications of those who are applying to teach this course:
Background in compositio.n theory and/or holistic scoring gained at another college or unive.rsity as a graduate teaching assistant or faculty member may be sufficient to meet this criterion. Applicants should provide a thorough synopsis of soch experiences in their letters of application.
New Faculty Appointments: High schools seeking to have a faculty member approved for dual credit instruction will submit a letter of nomination from the principal naming the recommended faculty member and specifying the course to be taught. This nomination will be supported by the concurrent submission of the nominee's resume and college transcripts. Nominees must possess minimally the master’s degree in the discipline [i.e. the MA in History] or a master’s degree with a minimum of 18 credit hours in the discipline exclusive of method and survey courses [i.e. MA in Teaching with 18 hours in the discipline]. EXCEPTION: The sponsoring academic department may require additional information from faculty applicants provided these requirements are congruent with the requirements placed on applicants for part-time faculty positions on campus.
Nominations will be submitted to the Office of Dual Credit and that office will screen all applicants for compliance with CBHE and university criteria for dual credit and off-campus faculty. Qualified nominations will then be submitted to the subject academic department for review. The process of review and appointment for each department will be the same as for the appointment of any part-time faculty member.
The department chair or designee will advise the Office of Dual Credit in writing of departmental action, and where a dual credit instructor is approved, written notification should be in the form of a letter of appointment that will become part of the dual credit faculty member's permanent personnel file. The Office of Dual Credit will advise the high school of the final disposition on faculty nominations
