Faculty Needed For New Online Psychology Program at CUNY SPS

Dear CUNY Colleagues –

I encourage you to consider joining us in building a brand new undergraduate program in Psychology – one in which courses will be fully online and available to students from New York City, as well as many other locations around the world.

The Online B.A. in Psychology was approved by New York State in June 2011 and applications are being accepted for classes that will begin in Spring 2012. The curriculum is rigorous and consistent with recent recommendations by the American Psychological Association; that is, it is sequential and emphasizes research methods from the beginning. In addition, writing and career planning are fully integrated. Detailed information about the curriculum is available at: http://online.sps.cuny.edu/catalog/psychology/index.aspx

As you may know, the new CUNY Multiple Position policy increases the overload allowed for tenured and non-tenure track full-time faculty when they teach in an online degree program. A complete copy of the policy statement is at: http://www.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/ohrm/policies-procedures/multiple-positions.html

Interested candidates should send their CVs to marisol.flores@mail.cuny.edu

In addition to teaching roles, we will be hiring individuals with appropriate expertise to build Blackboard-based course sites. In contacting us, please indicate if this second type of opportunity would be of interest to you.

Join us as a partner in this exciting venture. You will gain skills in online teaching that will serve you in a variety of future teaching assignments.
