I have interviewed no less than 200 applicants for part-time and full-time college teaching positions, and I have met both good and bad interviewees. Many are nervous, which is to be expected, but many are also unprepared.
I recently responded to a question posted on HubPages. The person who posted it wanted to know what the most common interview questions where for teachers.
Common Teacher Interview Questions
If you preparing to interview for a college teaching position, you may be asked some of the following questions:
What roles are college faculty expected to play? Find out what they are, why they are important and how to perform at your best.
Understanding how complex the role of a college instructor and create a plan for self development.
I chuckle a bit when I think about job postings for part time college instructors that call for two years prior teaching experience. It’s the chicken or egg thing. Which comes first? You mean you can’t get a job teaching unless you have had a job teaching? Well, I am being a bit facetious, but the question remains, how do you get a job with little or no prior teaching experience?
