Job Expectations
Curriculum in the school for Professional and Continuing Education is based on stackable certificates and related bachelor’s degree curriculum comprised of 4-credit and 8-credit offerings, normally planned at a 25:1 student to faculty ratio, and capstone work including undergraduate research or internships and individual study. Faculty appointed to the school for Professional and Continuing Education will teach a mixture of those types of offerings, with a planned full-time workload of 400 student credit hours per quarter. Most courses and programs will be offered online or in a low residency, hybrid, or high-flex format with both remote and in-person elements. Most synchronous instruction would be taught in the evenings or weekends, with some flexibility to offer instruction in the day if there is demonstrated demand or if teaching during daylight hours is an important part of the pedagogy (such as for field work). In the first year of the contract faculty will have the opportunity for partial release from teaching to help with the design and development of new certificates and curriculum in the school for Professional and Continuing education. Faculty will be provided with opportunities to increase their skill in online curriculum development.

Evergreen uses narrative evaluations in lieu of grades and faculty are generally responsible for evaluating 25 students/quarter in each class. Faculty are also responsible for advising students as they reflect on their learning process, develop a pathway of study, and formulate their own areas of concentration.

Our teaching is student-centered, which means we are interested in helping students develop strong skills in critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaborative work. Because over 80% of our students come from underserved and marginalized groups, we are particularly invested in approaches to teaching that emphasize diversity and equity, that provide opportunities for challenge and growth, and that foster a learning environment where all are welcome and all can learn from each other.
