Limited Term Lecturer - Indigenous Education and Pedagogy

The Faculty of Education, Simon Fraser University, seeks applications for a two-year Limited-Term Lecturer position in Indigenous Education and Pedagogy. The appointment will begin as soon as possible and no later than July 2019 and will carry a teaching load of eight courses or equivalent. The successful applicant will teach undergraduate-level courses in the Bachelor of Education Program and within Professional Programs (PDP, PQP, PLP), and relevant graduate courses within the Faculty of Education. The final selection of candidates will be based on the best overall demonstration of potential to support teaching and curriculum development in these two areas.

The Faculty is committed to high-quality teaching, and the successful applicant will have a critical role as a member of the Indigenous Education and Reconciliation Council community. The position will also work in partnership with the Office of Indigenous Education and the various program areas of graduate education, undergraduate education, and teacher education (e.g., PDP, PQP, PLP).

Specifically, the successful candidate will be expected to work collegially with faculty and staff to further develop the Faculty's capacity to fulfill and surpass the Teacher Regulation Branch (TRB) mandate that requires every pre-service teacher in BC to take a course or course equivalent pertaining to “First Nations pedagogy and issues related to the historical and current context of First Nations, Inuit and Métis learners,” as per Policy P5.C.03.1 of the TRB. This will require close collaboration with the large and diverse team of educators involved in the Faculty’s Professional Programs in teacher education and the Bachelor of General Studies in Education program. Prior relationships and collaborations with Indigenous communities, particularly those in the lower mainland and British Columbia, are considered a strong asset.

Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Indigenous Studies, Indigenous Education (or related area). K-12 experience (either in a teaching or research capacity) is preferred. Familiarity with methodologies of teacher-led inquiry will be an asset. Furthermore, this position will also include supporting the professional development (e.g., intercultural competency) of faculty and staff in the area of Indigenous education in relation to the Faculty of Education’s 5-Year Plan, which is committed to Equity, Indigeneity, and Culture of Inquiry.

Located in the greater Vancouver area, the Faculty of Education offers classes on three urban campuses in Burnaby, Surrey, and downtown Vancouver and works with communities and school districts throughout British Columbia. The Faculty has an outstanding record in research grants and publications, and in the design and delivery of innovative community based programs in teacher education and professional development.
