Emily Carr University of Art + Design invites applications for a new full-time faculty position of Multilingual Learning Specialist. The successful candidate will develop and maintain support programs for students, staff and faculty in the area of supporting multilingual students. This position will work in collaboration with both the Writing Centre and the Teaching and Learning Centre.
Reporting to the Dean of Culture and Community, this position will directly support multilingual students at the undergraduate and graduate level as well as build staff and faculty awareness and expertise in pedagogical practices for multilingual students.
While the primary emphasis of our current support is in the area of writing, support for reading, listening and speaking will be necessary sites of future development.
The Emily Carr Writing Centre is a key resource in coordinating co-curricular instruction and support for our many multilingual students. The Writing Centre works closely with faculty instructors, student teaching assistants, student services staff, administration, and individual undergraduate and graduate students to maintain a network of support and advancement in areas of writing and language development.
