The Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development at Tufts University is seeking a part-time Lecturer to teach CSHD 164 Cultural Diversity in Child and Family Services. Designed for master’s and undergraduate students, this course examines the effect of culture and social systems as contextual influences on individuals’ realities and consequently, the values and behavioral adaptations they develop. There are three streams of focus: 1) self-exploration about one’s own cultural identities and their influence on one’s work with others; 2) understanding how culture is manifested in daily lives and how stratification impacts child/family functioning; and 3) learning about services and interventions delivered through strengths-based and culturally sensitive lenses. This class is scheduled to be taught virtually on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:15 pm.
Master’s level degree in human development, psychology, or related field. Prior college-level teaching experience (graduate level preferred).
