“At OTC, we value instructors who bring academic knowledge and work experience into the classroom to enhance student learning,” said Tim Baltes, associate vice chancellor of human resources and workforce development. “As a lot of our students also work, we feel that working professionals can bring applicable situations and real-world examples that will be even more salient to our student body.”
Starting pay is $714 per credit hour for lecture and $492 per contact hour for lab, studio and practicum; this amount will increase based on years of service to the college. Conveniently, many of the course opportunities are taught online or after working hours. Interested candidates should bring a completed OTC application, resume, unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and any certifications or licenses to the career fair.
