Undergraduate Semester in Dialogue
We are inviting applications for a full-time, limited term, assistant
professor position to teach in Simon Fraser University’s Undergraduate
Semester in Dialogue. The Semester in Dialogue addresses what we believe is
the principal challenge for contemporary education: to inspire students with
a sense of civic responsibility, encourage their passion to improve Canadian
society, and develop innovative intellectual tools for effective problem
solving. Each semester we develop an original and intensive learning
experience that uses dialogue to focus student education on public issues.
The Undergraduate Semester is associated with the Morris J. Wosk Centre for
Dialogue at SFU’s downtown Vancouver campus, conceived to encourage public
assembly through dialogue-based programs and conferences that address social
issues. Full information can be found at www.sfu.ca/dialogue/undergrad.
