Interested in becoming a Part-Time Lecturer or Field Supervisor?

In accordance with UW's Faculty Code, all prospective part-time lecturers and teaching associates/field supervisors (hereinafter referred to as field supervisors) are required to submit materials and participate in a short interview led by a faculty review team (see below for instructions). Materials are then reviewed by the School of Education's voting-eligible faculty monthly, and a recommendation is sent to the Dean of the School. UW's Academic HR formally approves all hires. Per UW Policy, the successful completion of a criminal background check is also required before any appointment will be extended. More information will be provided when an appointment is offered to an applicant.

Please note: as we have limited course offerings and must prioritize the schedules of all full-time faculty to ensure they meet their contractual obligations to the university, we may not always have opportunities for all applicants who are approved by the faculty to teach courses or supervise candidates. To avoid conflicts of interest and because of our structure of shared governance, the Dean of the School usually cannot meet with applicants before or during the review process.

Please do not submit materials outside of this system including to the Dean or individual faculty. Materials that are not submitted according to these instructions will be sent back to the applicant. 


The School of Education includes the following program areas:

  • Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership (Ed.D.)
  • Educational Administration Certification
  • M.Ed. for Practicing Teachers
  • Undergraduate Education Minors 
  • Teacher Certification Programs in Special Education, Secondary (Mathematics and Science), and TELL (Teaching English Learners.


Part-time lecturers may teach across all of our programs or just in one program.
