FIE London is currently seeking to contract a qualified, enthusiastic, and confident sessional instructor to teach an undergraduate course on Ethical Leadership in the Fall of 2019. The ideal instructor will have a PhD (or be near to completion) in a directly related field and have experience of teaching at the undergraduate level. FIE classes are delivered to undergraduates from a variety of institutions, predominantly American universities. The ideal candidate will therefore have experience teaching American university undergraduates at a range of levels. Faculty are responsible for all aspects of course preparation, teaching, and assessment.
The essence of FIE's teaching and learning strategy lies in using the location of London in creative ways so as to enable students to develop subject-specific and intercultural competencies. We are interested in experiential education, which may be achieved through research projects and independent studies, academic internships, and service internship placements. We assist our students to become more reflective and to develop their analytical and presentational skills. By understanding a foreign culture, students should gain new perspectives on their own. Therefore, anyone who teaches a subject with us would have to be willing and able to incorporate field trips, site visits, guest lectures, and other experiential components as part of their teaching delivery strategy.
The Ethical Leadership course description is as follows:
In this course, students learn the interconnectedness of leadership and ethics. The course examines the ethical background of what leaders are, what they do, and how they do it. Students assess the public and private morality of leaders, the moral obligations of leaders and followers, the ways in which leaders shape the morality of their environments, and the temptations of power.
This course looks at how leaders convey values through their actions (and inactions), language, and their power and influence as role models. The course aims to expand students’ moral point of view by first considering personal ethics, then moving on to look at leadership and the common good, and finishing with an examination of ethics in a global community.
