Approving & Orienting New Instructors
Applicants for Concurrent Enrollment program (CEP) instructor positions must meet the same qualifications as an adjunct instructor teaching the course on campus. After reviewing the qualifications to teach a course, potential instructors should express their interest in working with the CEP by submitting application materials to a staff member. The CEP will forward applications to the appropriate department to initiate the approval process.
Faculty Liaisons review and approve new applications submitted by instructors who want to teach a concurrent enrollment class. They then orient the new instructors to the course to ensure each class reflects the University and academic department’s pedagogical, theoretical and philosophical orientation.
New Instructor Accreditation Standards
The processes and practices of approving and orienting new concurrent enrollment instructors at Boise State are aligned with the following NACEP Accreditation Standards:
- Faculty 1 (F1): All concurrent enrollment instructors are approved by the appropriate college/university academic leadership and must meet the minimum qualifications for instructors teaching the course on campus.
- Faculty 2 (F2): Faculty Liaisons at the college/university provide all new concurrent enrollment instructors with course-specific training in course philosophy, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment prior to the instructor teaching the course.
- Faculty 4 (F4): The CEP ensures instructors are informed of and adhere to program policies and procedures.
- Assessment 1 (A1): The college/university ensures concurrent enrollment students’ proficiency of learning outcomes is measured using comparable grading standards and assessment methods to on campus sections.
