The hard thing is that many of them require lots of credible teaching experience, and all of mine is with Highs School age - or younger - kids. Does this count? Well yes, but does it count on a collegiate level? So I ask you, how does one get the experience when the experience is required to get the experience? If you understood that - good on you - and if you both understood it and have an answer/recommendation PLEASE GIVE IT!
*I have an idea, that I could write up something regarding my lack of college level experience but what all my other assets bring ... being equal too ... etc...does that make sense?
And when they ask for a teaching philosophy - still haven't formulated one that really sounds like me and sounds GOOD.
And what if they ask for a sample syllabus ... do I create a "model" one and submit it ... ???
Oiy ... the application process is NO fun, not really!
At any rate, I've got a slew of places I can submit myself too and see what happens.
Go Big or Go Home Mags!
