Online Academic Coach/Teaching Assistant (Virtual, Part-Time) Job
Los Angeles, CA
Academic Coaches are highly qualified, experienced practitioners who most frequently serve as the liaison between the university faculty member and students. The exact requirements and requirements of an Academic Coach are tailored according to individual university and program needs. Often the Academic Coach is the student's initial point of contact, and acts in much a similar fashion that a traditional teaching assistant does in a university. Coaches monitor student engagement, facilitate course content, provide on-line student support, and regularly collaborate with university faculty. Academic Coaches serve as facilitators and graders, while university faculty are the teacher of record. Compensation is based on a per-student- per-course formula. About 75% of the courses are six to 8-week course cycles and the programs are year round. The average is approx 10-15 minutes per student per week; however that can vary on the course you are assigned to and the number of open ended assignments within the course. The Academic Coaching positions are considered part time work (as an independent contractor). Academic Coaches who consistently complete coach assignments with quality will be considered for additional sections or responsibilities. We do not want to over extend a coaches' responsibilities to such a degree that this negatively impacts their expertise to serve students. In a 1st assignment, the practical limit is 50 students, with 30 being more typical. A highly proficient coach with ample time may be assigned up to 150 students but this is the upper limit. If selected as an candidate, you will be required to complete an Academic Coach Training course (which is a Pre-employment Screening). Participants can expect to commit four to 6 hours to training, typically accomplished in a week. Training includes introduction to the learning management system (LMS) and a study of the principles of on-line education. If a participant does not complete this training in the allotted time, he or she may re-enroll in the course again. The training is offered 2-3 times per month and always start on a Monday. Upon successful competition of the training (active participation and working through all modules), you are advanced to the contracting phase. The contract is dependent on the success of the experience investigation and training. Once your contractor package is complete, your name will added to our pool of screened and qualified Academic Coaches ready for an assignment. Coaches are assigned to courses, and the courses are offered in a gallery format - in which the same course may not be offered each course cycle. The courses are divided into sections of approx 30 students. You may be assigned to multiple sections within a course. Coaching assignments are made in consultation with Lead Coaches and/or Coordinating Coaches. Either of whom may guide the candidate in a short orientation to the assigned program and course. Actual course assignments are made near to the course start date and are dependent on many factors including: area and level of graduate study, university approval and student enrollments.
