Korean Language Instructor, Mansfield Center, Defense Critical Language/Culture Program (DCLCP) at the Mansfield Center
The Defense Critical Language/Culture Program (DCLCP) at the Mansfield Center will develop and teach short, intensive critical languages Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Korean and Strategic Culture programs to US military and USG employees developing various levels of language skills and preparing for onward assignments to designated host nations. The Program will also develop on-line learning modules for remote language and culture teaching in coordination with Department of Defense (DoD) entities. It will work with other entities at The University of Montana to develop an on-line Masters Degree program for deployed military and other UM students.
The Instructor of Korean Language will be developing curriculum and instructing military personnel in intensive, initial acquisition language courses. These courses will be held at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington via an online platform. Due to multiple training sites, some travel may be required for instructors. The duration of the courses range from 24 to 956 hours. While classes are in session, 4-5 hours of teaching hours per day are expected as well as time for preparation of lesson planning and supplementary curriculum development. During times when courses are not in session, materials are developed by the language instructors for publishing and for in-class use.
The instructor must be at a native fluency in the target languages (Korean) and a high proficiency level in English. They will also be required to take an Oral Proficiency Interview and score a minimum of a 3/3 in both languages. Knowledge of current language materials developed around the world is important so that material developed by the program is not redundant.
The instructor must have a high level of knowledge in current teaching methodologies in the classroom. They must also be able to work productively in a group and independently while courses are not in session and able to meet deadlines as set by administration. Additionally, while courses are in session, the instructors must be able to create and follow syllabi without oversight.
