Pine Manor College announced two teaching opportunities for the Fall semester. Their classes begin Monday, August 31st. There is a full week break at Thanksgiving and exams end December 15th.
BI330 Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. Lecture Monday/Wednesday 10:20 – noon Lab Wednesday 2:00 – 5:30. This is a standard Micro course taught to biology majors. They are currently using the Tortora text, but have used others. They also use a standard lab manual, but are open to additional creative labs. Students do an “unknown” project that includes a formal write-up. Currently there are 11 students enrolled. This may increase, but not by much. They do not envision the enrollment above 16.
CHC100 Introduction to Community Health. Lecture Monday/Wednesday 12:10 – 1:50 pm. This is one half of the gateway year into our Community Health Major. It is also an “interdisciplinary course” at the college, and so there are students taking it to fulfill that requirement. There will be a diversity of students, from first year to seniors. There is a textbook that has been used, but those whom have taught the course think that this can be eliminated and the course taught entirely with readings. Previous instructors taught the course a few times and is ready with feedback and suggestions. Maximum enrollment should be around 18, but may be as low as 12.
If anyone is interested, they can contact Susan Bear by email and she can provide more details:

Programs at Pine Manor are very “user friendly” and they provide a welcoming professional environment. They would prefer individuals who have teaching experience, but are willing to discuss the courses further with anyone who is energetic and committed to providing a strong learning experience for their students.
