Here’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
I am writing to ask for your help in changing the way mainstream higher education thinks about teaching and learning. Okay, that may be a bit hyperbolic, but only a bit. At least if you read this blog, I know you are sympathetic to the goal.
The University of Mary Washington is in the process of hiring a director for our new teaching center. We are looking for someone with a special skill set to build a program from the ground up. We are looking for someone who thinks originally and creatively about higher education. We are looking for someone who believes in the transformative power of higher education, someone who, while conversant with the concept of the CMS, is not limited by that concept, someone who understands that teaching is a creative, individual process, not a one-size-fits-all transaction.
I would like to solicit your help in reaching individuals who you think might fit what we’re looking for as described more fully here. UMW provides a rather unique situation for someone interested in creating a forward looking program to promote teaching and learning for the 21st Century. To this end, I wonder if you could to forward information about this opportunity to anyone you think would be qualified for our position, or anyone you think might know someone so qualified. The closing date for the position is January 20, 2009, which I realize is fast approaching. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.
