The program in Education, Inquiry and Justice (EDIJ) and the Capitol Applied Learning Lab (CALL) at Georgetown University invite applications for a joint non-tenure Assistant Teaching Professor position (3-year term, possibility of renewable) to begin in August 2022.
The non-tenure line (NTL) faculty position for the EDIJ and CALL Programs would serve a three-year term teaching a 2/2 load in the first year, and a 3/3 load the final two years. In the first year, the NTL also would build a pipeline between the EDIJ and the CALL and craft an education-focused pathway in the CALL’s Social Impact Program, with EDIJ/CALL program advising over the final two years.
The Program in Education, Inquiry and Justice (EDIJ) is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the nexus of education and social justice. The program anchors the study of education in the pursuit of equity within the liberal arts tradition; models and integrates active, engaged pedagogy; and facilitates rich, community-based opportunities in preK-12 environments for undergraduate students. EDIJ develops students’ ability to critically examine the intersection of education and society and connects students with the local DC community and the broader public discourse on equity and education. In EDIJ, students examine the historical and contemporary social context, policy, research, and practices of education in the US.
The Capitol Applied Learning Lab (CALL) is a curated learning experience for Georgetown undergraduate students that integrates curricular, co-curricular, and experiential learning. Situated at Georgetown’s downtown DC campus, the CALL animates transformative pathways for students to study, live, and intern immersed in the broader Washington, DC, community.
