  • Deliver course curriculum that produces job market ready graduates
  • Report on student progress and success throughout the course to the track’s Program Manager
  • Review curriculum with cohort Team Leads (TLs) and Section Leads (SLs) so they can better support students
  • Coordinate efforts with the cohort SL to ensure SLs understand the nuances of the course and reporting mechanisms to support student learning
  • Collaborate with other instructors, Student Success Team, and Lambda X as needed

What You'll Need:
