Responding to a critical need of the ceramic manufacturing industry, Central Ohio Technical College (Newark, Ohio), in partnership with the Edward Orton Jr. Ceramic Foundation and The America Ceramic Society, plans to establish a two-year associate’s degree in ceramic materials engineering technology. COTC expects to welcome its first student cohort in fall 2020 pending approval from the Higher Learning Commission accrediting body.

COTC has opened a faculty search to lead the academic side of the program. “This is a great opportunity for someone who understands the needs of the industrial community and has a passion for working with young people,” says Mark Mecklenborg, ACerS executive director.

The position will begin as a part-time appointment and is expected to increase to full-time as the program extends beyond the first cohort.

The part-time faculty member is responsible for providing professional, quality work as a teaching faculty member. Responsibilities include facilitating student learning by conducting and teaching lecture and lab courses at the undergraduate level, using active learning methods and a variety of instructional strategies designed to assist the learner in meeting the objectives of the program, assessing student learning, and providing academic assistance to students as needed.
