BYU-Idaho Visiting Faculty Position in English

BYU Idaho
I am happy to announce that I recently accepted a Visiting Faculty position at Brigham Young University-Idaho beginning Fall Semester 2015. I will teach courses within the English Department.

Brigham Young University-Idaho, or BYU-I, is a four-year, private university located in Rexburg, Idaho in the Snake River Valley just outside Idaho Falls. Formerly known as Ricks College, the university was founded in 1888 and enrolls approximately 16,000 students each semester, making it the largest private university within Idaho. Campus spreads over 40 buildings located on 400 acres. The university offers over 100 bachelor's degrees and 25 associate's degrees and runs on three fourteen-week semesters each year (Fall, Winter, and Spring).

BYU-Idaho's Learning Model emphasizes active student engagement in the learning process based on the three steps of (1) prepare, (2) teach one another, and (3) ponder and prove. Building upon these goals, the university's general education program, Foundations, provides interdisciplinary courses that give students broader knowledge than found in most traditional introductory college classes. The university also believes in providing online learning options to students worldwide through its Pathway program.
