Visiting or Adjunct Professor for US, European or Asian colleges and universities
Do you have a gap in your curriculum that needs to be filled out? What about hiring a part-time Visiting or Adjunct Professor of Economics? I have graduated from the University of Iowa (USA) and have 8 years of US style teaching experience (including 6 years in the USA). I have taught Principles of Macro- and Microeconomics and multiple MA level courses. For further details, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
While working as a Head Teaching Assistant at the University of Iowa, I also acquired a considerable organizational experience in handling lecture hall courses for 600-700 students. In particular, I managed 10 Teaching Assistants, taught lectures, organized exams, grading, weekly TA meetings and so on.
My courses are well-organized with a course-webpage, printed lectures notes, homeworks, quizzes etc. I am happy to talk to students throughout the day and not just during the office hours. My teaching evaluations are systematically in excess of 4 out of 5.
What courses can I offer as a visiting or adjunct Professor?
