The Part-Time Instructor Pools are for applicants who are interested in teaching in the future as an adjunct (part-time) instructor for one of our instructional divisions. The Instructor Pools are always open for applications. HOWEVER, THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE HAVE AN IMMEDIATE OPENING IN THE DIVISION. The Instructor Pools function as a way for division chairs to view applicant materials in advance of a need, and determine if the applicant will be approved or not approved to be added to their pool of eligible applicants. Should a part-time instructional need arise in a given division, the division chair will look first at the approved applicants to see if anyone matches our needs, in which case they may make contact to schedule an interview.
PLEASE NOTE: Review of instructor pool applications occurs when needs are identified in a given division.
North Idaho College does not have a need for “online only” adjunct instructors. Because of this, candidates who would not be able to teach in a face-to-face course environment (i.e., be able to physically be at the main campus in Coeur d’Alene, or one of our outreach centers in northern Idaho) will not be able to be considered or approved for the part-time/adjunct instructor pools.
This position is responsible for teaching up to 9 credits in the specified field of study as assigned by the Division Chairperson and for serving as advisor to students.
