Was nice place to work. Did not care for the textbook selected but if I would have stayed, would have changed it. Too much programming for a 100 level Computer Science course.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
1 year contracts

The so-called "instructional practitioner" designation at the Edwards School of Business (ESB) is very telling. Knowledge is demeaned to "just another market commodity." If present expansions in part-time contingent faculty continues, two-thirds of the "faculty" consists of "adjuncts" hired on poor paying, short-term contracts--to teach off-the-shelf and Web-based material they themselves have not created. What sort of society could conceivably benefit from the replacement of scholars with manufactured employees--each programmed according to pre-packaged content taught them by poorly qualified precarious labour. This new and expanding cadre of administrative bureaucrats have little or no teaching background and, if this trend continues, degrees from the ESB will turn out to be little more than expensive fishing licenses for fished-out lakes, rivers and streams. This increasing infestation of all-administrative universities amounts to a form of "leadership" that--metaphorically--resembles hoards of lemmings playing follow-the-leader over the cliff edge. The Edwards School of Business is just another business for selling loans.
Pros
The students are great and amazing.
Cons
The administration are accountants, with no teacher training in education.
