• Participating in monthly check-in team-wide instructor meetings.
• Fostering a sense of community among the Discover AI students.
• All new instructors are required to attend an on-boarding and orientation session.

• A strong commitment to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in technology

• Have experience teaching students within the AI4ALL target student audience
• Have experience applying active learning methodologies in an online environment/classroom

• The pay rate is $40/hour for 12 hours/week (if teaching one cohort) or 16 hours/week (if teaching 2 cohorts) during the 10 weeks of the program in the Fall and Spring semesters.
