Gakushuin ISS is looking for a part-time teacher for an academic reading & writing course (twice a week on Tuesday and Friday mornings, Period 1 and 2) to start in April 2018. The minimum requirement is a Master's degree and relevant experience in teaching at Japanese universities. Ping me.

Hello all! I am an assistant prof. of computer science interested in data analysis and mining, computational geometry, computer game design and prototyping. I am working in Hacettepe University, Turkey. I wanted to give mastodon a try and hope to find a trusted medium for sharing my thoughts and collaborating with people. So, I really hope that this works :)

(for a colleague)

Just met with staff from Teaching Certification Office. We have to set minimum entry requirements for 3rd year students next year so they can do practicum in 4th year. (New faculty, so that will be our first cohort through.) Amazing how little pedagogical education students get before going for three weeks of practice teaching.
