The ReBUILDetroit Program, a consortium of Marygrove College, University of Detroit Mercy, and Wayne State University, seeks graduate students with a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and research. The Graduate Learning Community Advisors (GLCAs) will work closely with faculty preceptors at one of the ReBUILDetroit campuses to design, implement and deliver a common curriculum in introductory courses containing authentic research experiences based on the Research Coordination Network (RCN) model. For more information, see rebuildetroit.org.

The position will be a commitment of approximately 20 hours of orientation in December 2016, and 8-10 hours per week from January through May, 2017. GLCAs will receive a stipend in the amount of $2500.

The structure of the experience will include:

  • Working at one of the partner campuses where you will collaborate with the faculty of a specific RCN course/lab. This includes engaging and contributing actively in the course design, delivery and assessment of student learning, in addition to attending each class/laboratory session.
  • Participating in peer-facilitated weekly discussions of teaching and learning related to your discipline-specific RCN.
  • Participating in monthly peer-led discussions of literature from the educational research that underlies course-based undergraduate research and evidence-based instructional practices across all three RCN disciplines.
  • Participating in periodic ReBUILDetroit consortium events, including professional development workshops and Learning Community gatherings.
  • Documenting your experience through a reflective journal and Individualized Development Plan (IDP) and/or teaching portfolio.
  • Participating in evaluation activities to measure your growth and development, and obtain feedback on the design and implementation of the RCN courses.
