UW Continuum College expands the reach of the University of Washington by delivering educational programs that meet the needs of learners at all phases of their lives.

As a diverse community that values inclusivity and collaboration, we foster a respectful, supportive workplace where innovation comes to life. By looking ahead and experimenting with new approaches, we’re creating new educational opportunities to help people thrive in a world of change.
UW Continuum College (UWC2) has an outstanding opportunity for a part-time instructor for the Professional and Continuing Education (PCE) Certificate in Paralegal Studies program. Instructors serve a key role in certificate programs, engaging with students, serving as subject matter experts, presenting learning content, and assessing whether learners have achieved course competencies. PCE students consistently say that the instructor is the single most important element of their course.
We are expanding our instructor pool for all program courses and are currently accepting applications on an ongoing basis. Classes are offered live in the evenings, 6:00-9:00 PM, during Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters via Zoom. Summer courses are asynchronous online. The time commitment is three hours of weekly instruction and approximately five hours of weekly lesson preparation, student interaction, and grading outside of class time.
