Knowledge of proficiency-based assessment, ACTFL standards and OPI scales, language learning assessment, and proficiency in the use of technologies for the language classroom are required.

We are seeking a dynamic and creative individual, with the ability to teach all levels of French in a student-centered environment, with demonstrated excellence in teaching and a commitment to French language pedagogy that speaks to and motivates undergraduates from diverse backgrounds.
