Courses are offered in 8 and 16-week formats, and in online, face to face , and hybrid settings.
Responsibilities will include:
- Course preparation and instruction, including the creation of OER courses, short-term courses, creative scheduling, and off campus options
- Program and class recruitment and retention, including dual-enrollment and professional development for educators/early childhood educators
- Course development based on accreditation, Arizona Department of Education and program needs/requirements
- Participation in the on campus college community, support of student activities (clubs) and continued professional growth (college and content related)
- Participation in community service (scholarship committees, advisory groups, conference planning, partnerships)
- Creative program development in collaboration with other faculty, the program director, and Family Enrichment Center lab school based on needs assessment, certification requirements, and potential 4 year degree options

- Student support e.g. student placement, scholarship, and monitoring in observation and practicum experiences
The successful faculty member recognizes that service to our students is our highest priority, and embraces their role in student success, recruitment, and retention. This includes being open to a variety of delivery methods and course design with the possibility of interactive, online, day, evening, weekend classes and/or teaching at various College locations and/or in the high school/college dual enrollment programs. In addition, faculty should be open to both traditional (16 week) and compressed course design (i.e., 8 week classes). Faculty can expect to participate in innovative forms of assessment and should be willing to utilize OER when possible.
The expectation is that full-time faculty serve as provisional faculty for a period of three years prior to being reviewed for continuing status. The determination of faculty status is, however, ultimately at the discretion of the College President as the Yavapai College District Governing Board’s designee.
