Franklin University, located in Columbus, Ohio, is seeking part-time adjunct faculty to teach an undergraduate College Writing course as part of our prison education program located in College Hall at the London Correctional Institute (LoCI) in London, Ohio.  This 12-week course will be taught in a face-to-face format beginning with our Fall 2021 term. Classes are typically held one night per week but there is flexibility in when the course can be offered. The successful applicant will receive training on how to interact with inmates.

In this course, students acquire the writing competence necessary for conducting and presenting research. A variety of assignments, beginning with personal reflections, build upon one another, as students develop ideas that respond to, critique, and synthesize the positions of others. Students systematize and organize knowledge in ways that will help them in all of their courses. The course also emphasizes the elements of good writing style, appropriate grammar and mechanics, clarity of language, and logical and cohesive development. It culminates in submission of a documented research paper.

Minimum qualifications include a Master’s degree in composition and rhetoric or a closely related field, or a minimum of 18 graduate credit hours in composition pedagogy, rhetorical theory and practice, or English language literacy. In addition, two years teaching lower-division writing to adult learners (traditional or non-traditional) in a writing program at an accredited college or university is required. Excellent teaching evaluations and previous teaching experience are also required.  

Diverse candidates are encouraged to apply.
