When most educators think about teaching they may be referring to the traditional teaching
jobs where the Instructor stands in front of a classroom and teaches students curriculum.
The traditional teaching method is not out of date by any means, but technology has opened
doors for alternative methods in classroom instruction. Online learning platforms continue to
pop up all over the country that allow students to gain knowledge by learning and taking
courses online. Each instance of an institution opening online also comes with the
opportunity for instructors and other education professionals to gain employment.
If you are an educator who is thinking about a change from your traditional career, this may
be the opportunity for you to examine. Your schedule would be freed up more than with a
traditional position where you’d be standing in front of your classroom. You would be in
charge of not only the curriculum you teach in the class, but also how often things are due
and WHEN you would be available for discussions, issues, or possible webinars, where
the class would sit in and watch you teaching, showing them possibly formulas and such
that are better understood through live example.
To become an educator one must already possess proper credentials to be considered for
positions. Most institutions will require instructors to have obtained a Masters degree or
better in the field of education. Requirements to become an instructor will change depending
on what type of teaching you will be doing and the field of concentration.
