The Integrated Business (IB) department at the University of Central Florida (UCF) seeks to fill a lecturer position. The teaching assignment will focus on the program's newly developed and required Business Climate Analysis course, which covers strategic analysis of the impact of changes in macro-environmental factors on businesses using the PESTEL framework. This course will include a heavy emphasis on individual writing that incorporates visual display of information. The teaching assignment may include other courses in the undergraduate IB program and the IB track of the Master of Science in Management (MSM) program.

This is a nine-month, non-tenure earning position anticipated to start August 8, 2019 (fall semester). The normal teaching load is four classes each fall semester and four classes each spring semester. While the primary assignment is at the UCF main campus, the selected candidate will be required to teach at two or more campuses each semester. Campus assignments could include the main (Orlando), Valencia West, Valencia East, and Osceola campuses.

The IB program employs a lead faculty member structure in which the content and structure of each course is developed and maintained by the lead. Lecturers are expected to focus on high quality course delivery and substantive student engagement. Lecturers also provide input on development of common assignment and assessments and changes in course content and structure. The IB program has adopted a flipped classroom approach in which face-to-face class time is used to actively engage students with course material and develop in them a range of soft skills.
