Job Description

UCLA Extension is the open-access, self-supporting continuing education division of UCLA. The Department of the Arts offers a wide variety of certificate programs and courses, including post-baccalaureate credit-bearing (400-level), continuing education (CEU) credit, and non-credit-bearing general interest courses.

Course disciplines in the Writers’ Program span subject areas such as Fiction and Nonfiction Writing, Poetry, Screenwriting (Film and TV), Editing & Publishing, and more. Our courses and certificate programs offer students the opportunity to learn from highly qualified practitioners who are passionate about teaching.

Applications to teach are accepted throughout the year in order to fill immediate program needs and to increase the depth of the instructor pool, but interviews will only be scheduled with qualified applicants who can fill anticipated openings.

Screenwriting Instructor – Podcasting

Podcasts – Narrative nonfiction, Fiction, etc.

Candidates with experience writing AND producing podcasts will receive additional consideration. We are currently searching for innovation in these areas and are open to proposals that expand our program offerings.

All instructors in this field have credits of produced work, and we are especially interested in those with current/recent credits in order to help students understand and navigate the evolving landscape of these fields.

Classes can be online or in person. Classes held in person meet once a week for 10 weeks, typically evenings from 7-10 pm PT. Online classes are offered in two formats: deadline-driven and asynchronous, or live remote instruction over web conferencing. Many in-person courses also take advantage of the online course format for distributing course materials, syllabi, assignments, and feedback.

  • Employ culturally competent teaching methodologies in the classroom inclusive of both domestic and international student populations.
  • Stay current regarding the professional body of knowledge in the field of Podcasting.

Special Conditions of Employment:

Instructors MUST live and work in the United States to be eligible for employment.

Compensation starts at $ $66.00 per instructional hour. Example: 10-week course = 30 instructional hours. The compensation varies with unit valuation and instructional hours of courses.

Because Extension is a division of UCLA, all Extension degree-credit instructors and courses must be formally approved according to the regulations of the Academic Senate of the University of California. Eligibility to teach a course is contingent upon this formal academic approval. Once approved, teaching.

Assignments are “by agreement.” The Instructor’s Contract outlines the deliverables for the course, the course schedule, and the compensation terms, subject to Extension policies and procedures. UCLA Extension makes no commitment to hire an instructor until it has sent and received a signed

Instructor

Contract. Should the course section an instructor plans to teach be canceled for any reason, the Instructor Contract, including rights to compensation for future section meetings, is voided.

In an effort to promote and maintain a healthy environment for our students, visitors and employees, UCLA is a smoke-free site. Smoking is prohibited within the boundaries of all UCLA-owned, occupied, leased, and associated buildings and facilities.
