You will receive notification that you have been approved and for what course. Please retain this email to use the course information later in the FACD courses. Once you are notified you have been approved, you will be contacted by Human Resources within 24 – 48 business hours to complete the new hire HR paperwork and background check. Upon completion of the HR paperwork and background check, you will be enrolled in the next session of our faculty development courses (FACD) found under the Candidate Requirements portion of our website.  
Once you complete the FACD courses, your credentials will be reviewed to see if your background aligns with any other instructor needs we currently have. If so, an approval request will be submitted on your behalf and you will be notified of any additional course approvals.   
Our classes last a total of 9 weeks for the students. There will be some preparation the instructors will need to do before the classes are made available to students and you will have one week after the course ends to submit final grades. 
Our online courses have the content already developed for the instructors. Instructors can provide students with supplemental materials, such as current news event articles, tutorials, etc. For any of our courses that have a face-to-face component, some of the course content will be already developed, whereas other aspects of the course you can create.  More information will be provided by the Course Developer and/or Chair regarding the creation of this material. 
Our Scheduling Team assigns instructors to courses. Once you complete the required FACD courses, your name will be provided to the team that you are now eligible for consideration. The team does work on instructor assignments in advance, so there is typically a delay between them being notified and you receiving your first course contract invitation.  
Yes, the scheduling team will review all instructors for the different delivery options we have here at ERAU Worldwide. When you completed the FACD 302 course, you will be eligible to be considered for our online, face-to-face, and hybrid (EagleVision) courses. 
Online classes start every month. Not all courses are offered every term, however. Our face-to-face and EagleVision courses start five times a year: January, March, May, August, and October.    
There is a formula we use to determine pay for instructors. The level of course taught and total enrollments calculate into the final determination of pay. Once you are approved to teach for us and complete your HR paperwork, you will be provided access to the pay formula. Adjuncts are paid bi-weekly during the time they are teaching the course.
