Human Resources maintains a pool of resumes for job seekers interested in teaching part-time at the College.

Sheridan is looking for an outstanding individual to join our faculty and to teach part-time in our first-year level Sculpture 1 course in the Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design.

Sheridan seeks a part-time professor to teach a one-semester section of Sculpture 1 FAS248H on Thursdays from 2-5 and 6-9 PM (six hours each week) over the thirteen-week winter session, 7 January 2019 through to 5 April 2019.

Art and Art History, a collaborative program between Sheridan and the University of Toronto Mississauga, offers a 4-year Major or Specialist Honours BA in studio and in art history. Interdisciplinary studios include: photography, painting, print media, design, drawing, and sculpture and installation. Art history offerings examine the history, production and reception of a range of visual and aural texts, including (but not limited to) photography, new media, popular culture, and advertising; painting, sculpture, architecture, and the built environment; contemporary art and museum culture; and time-based media, including film and television.


Sheridan faculty provide academic leadership to programs and courses within their areas of expertise and contribute to the creation of a learning-centred environment where students can develop to their full potential. They also contribute to College, School and program excellence by collaborating on a variety of initiatives such as new program development, applied research and alternative delivery strategies.

Specific accountabilities include:

  • Ensuring that program and course curricula are current, relevant and reflective of best practices within the relevant professional/program disciplines
  • Creating an effective environment for learning which accommodates students’ diverse cultural and educational backgrounds, experiences and individual learning styles
  • Designing appropriate strategies and tools for facilitating and assessing student learning
  • Developing multi-media materials and alternative delivery strategies, and incorporating appropriate educational technologies into the learning process
  • In Sculpture 1, the incumbent will lead students through a series of conceptual exercises providing opportunity for creative problem-solving and critical analysis while challenging conventional models of sculptural production. Students learn basic sculptural processes and materials, such as casting, mold-making, construction in cardboard and fabrication in wood

Professors also ensure that students are aware of course and program learning outcomes, learning strategies and evaluation techniques; provide individual tutoring and academic counselling; and evaluate student progress/achievement within assigned courses.


  • MFA preferred
  • Experience in teaching at the post-secondary level is preferred
  • An individual who can demonstrate an ability to teach traditional and contemporary sculpture practices within a fine-art context at the first-year level
  • An individual who has an informed view of contemporary art practices, issues and criticism, as well as pluralistic approach to contemporary art making
  • Strong network of contacts with other professionals, agencies and employers
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Committed to excellence in teaching and learning and to working within a team environment
  • Knowledge of industry specific software

Interested candidates may submit the following:

  • Fifteen (15) digital images of your artwork and ten (10) images of your students’ artwork, jpeg format, maximum 1024 x 768 pixels, posted to Flickr. Link must be provided
  • Five (5) minutes of a combination of sound or video files instead of, or in addition to, digital still images may be submitted by artists working in installation, video, audio, performance or electronic media. Submit audio or video files to either Vimeo or YouTube. Link must be provided
