=============================================================== From: Aaron welch ------------------------------------------------------ I find it funny that they want a game programmer with a masters degree. I do not know any game programmers with a masters degree. -AW

=============================================================== From: Sidney Hale ------------------------------------------------------ It's a teaching position. Of course, they are going to require at least a Master Degree. All college level teaching positions require you put your time into the system first.

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ Seeing the phrase "Masters degree in computer programming" is probably good indicator that you don't want to work there.

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ Eric is on his way to a PhD and is a game programmer. Do they stipulate that the Masters must be related to computers? :) Sent from my iPhone do not know any game programmers with a masters degree. =3D=3D lopment; professional growth; service to students; and service to the colleg= e and community. al process; evaluate students, monitor progress, assign final grades; provid= e out-of class academic assistance to students; maintain attendance and grad= e records; counsel and advise students regarding academic preparation and ca= reer goals; work to retain students; mentor and orient faculty and staff; ma= intain required classroom and office hours quipment, supplies, and other learning resources; develop supplemental instr= uctional materials; use current technology in preparation, creation and deli= very of instruction; create and revise courses and/or curricula as needed; m= aintain updated course syllabi related occupational areas and technologies; acquire, maintain, and apply k= nowledge of current instructional methodologies and materials; attend schedu= led college, divisional, professional development and in-service activities;= support related professional organizations by attending meetings and servin= g as officers; participate in annual faculty evaluation process opportunities; participate in registration process by advising, assisting s= tudents in preparing schedules and entering schedules into Student Informati= on System; assist in recruitment, selection, orientation and evaluation of p= otential students; assist in formal and informal placement activities for em= ployment and/or transfer to four-year institutions; support student activiti= es of college personnel as assigned; participate in accreditation, assessment a= nd performance funding processes; support and participate in college/divisio= n/department committees, organizations and/or task forces to make recommenda= tions in the College's decision-making processes; provide input and/or assis= tance in preparation of semester schedules, faculty assignments, facility as= signments and budgets; attend convocation and commencement exercises and par= ticipate in college programs; develop and maintain positive and cooperative r= elationships with colleagues; strengthen relationships between the college a= nd the community through program advisory committees and/or community outrea= ch activities d field. ing experience, and/or professional accomplishments istribution.

=============================================================== From: Aaron Welch ------------------------------------------------------ What I find hilarious is that they're actually looking for the teacher after= announcing the program. One would normally think you'd find the teacher be= fore announcing that you have a game development track at your school. Of c= ourse Chattanooga State was always a little off. -AW up a=20 d=20 ing=20

=============================================================== From: Eric Wolf ------------------------------------------------------ It's not Chatt State, that's normal for Academia. You design a curriculum and then you hire adjunct to fill in where you don't have faculty - but then only to meet demand. This class might have been more popular than expected, so they need to add faculty to cover gaps. And you'd be surprised how many people apply for these jobs. I'm not certain about an adjunct position at Chatt State, but a tenure-track position at almost any school will get a couple hundred applications for every opening. This is one of the reasons there are over 7000 janitors in the US with PhDs. -Eric -=--=---=----=----=---=--=-=--=---=----=---=--=-=- Eric B. Wolf 720-334-7734
