ALTEC continuously seeks outstanding teachers to join our instructional team. Our part-time lecturers teach non-credit classes with our language classes program, which is open to CU students, faculty and staff as well as community members. Our classes have traditionally met one day a week at 5:30-7:30pm on the CU Boulder campus for 10 weeks, but we have also taught classes twice a week at 12-12:50pm for 12 weeks. Our current summer classes meet for four weeks with two days of asynchronous work prepared by the instructor and synchronous class meetings over Zoom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 3-4pm.

There is no grading involved in our non-credit classes, so the time commitment is just in teaching, syllabus/lesson preparation and responding to students’ questions. Our language instructors always remark that teaching with ALTEC is so enjoyable because our learners are very motivated, and they get to focus on the fun parts of language instruction since there aren’t grades!
