Serving as eTutorial Facilitator

NACADA has a strong history of staffing our Institutes with highly qualified facilitators who are considered experts in their field. We are continuously striving to broaden our pool of qualified candidates that can serve as eTutorial faciliators. We encourage ACTIVE members of NACADA to apply.

How to Apply

To be considered for a potential eTutorial facilitator position at any of the NACADA eTutorials, please carefully review the eligibility criteria below and  compete the Facilitator Interest Form below. All applications will be reviewed by the eTutorial Management Team for placement consideration in upcoming eTutorials. Applications are valid for one year, if not selected in the year you apply you are welcome to reapply the following year. You are welcome to complete multiple Institute Faculty Questionnaires in the same year. Typically the facilitator review and hire process takes place in July – please be sure to have your application in at least one month in advance of these dates to ensure you are included in the upcoming review process. Your application may be reviewed by any of the eTutorial Management Teams to see if your experience fits with the needs of and NACADA eTutorial. If you are selected to be a part of NACADA's eTutorials, you will be contacted by the NACADA Executive Office once final selections have taken place.
