The Department of Theatre, Film, and Digital Production seeks one lecturer for the Winter 2021 quarter to direct our department production of She Kills Monsters. Instruction and direction for this production will be in a remote format through Zoom.
The director will be appointed as lecturer for the course TFDP 170: Performance in Production and will guide undergraduate actors and work with a full production design team. At the end of the quarter, the directors will assign grades to each student in the class based on their performances throughout rehearsal and performances. Production meetings begin in November and the position is contingent on the availability of funds.
According to the UCR COVID-19 Instructional Continuity Plan, “UCR will not require any instructor to teach in-person” and “During the 2020-21 academic year, we expect that the default instructional mode will continue to be remote-only, but this plan allows for the possibility of some classes to be taught in-person by exceptional approval.” For the current Plan, see https://campusreturn.ucr.edu/sites/g/files/rcwecm4671/files/2020-07/UCR%20COVID-19%20Instructional%20Continuty%20Plan%2007072020.pdf
