ePortfolio Director, Warren Wilson College
Warren Wilson College, a national liberal arts college with integrated work and service programs, seeks a faculty director for our emergent ePortfolio program. This is a faculty position reporting through the office of Academic Affairs with full College benefits and offered on an annual, renewable contract. For candidates with the appropriate qualifications and discipline there is a potential for an extended contract (our faculty are unranked and are not part of a tenure system).
Warren Wilson College is a tier one nationally ranked, independent liberal arts college located on a 1,135-acre campus in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, North Carolina, with a unique program of rigorous liberal arts academics, challenging work experience, and deliberate community engagement through service learning.
We are building a four-year portfolio to collect learning throughout the educational program of academics, work, and service we call the “Triad.” With structured reflection to facilitate the integration of the learning students achieve in their courses, on their work crews, and in their community engagement, this ePortfolio will ask students to intentionally connect the unique components of the Warren Wilson Triad Education as well as to shape a comprehensive sense of self upon graduation. A recently-adopted general education curriculum supports a portfolio structure with a set of scaffolded courses from first-year seminar through capstone; our service program adopted a staged Community Engagement Commitment (PEGS); and our work program is currently investigating a developmental model for work-learning. Students write an inaugural First-Year Letter reflecting on their Triad experiences in their arrival semester and apply for graduation with a public Senior Letter. We have the pieces and the framework to build a meaningful portfolio. We need the leadership and expertise to make it happen.
We seek a dynamic leader and resilient systems-thinker able to advocate and execute our Triad learning ePortfolio program. We welcome applicants with diverse educational backgrounds and skill sets to lead development, implementation, and support of this multi-faceted initiative.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate their accomplishments in ways that show them able to lead our campus in the following activities (both start-up and ongoing):
