The Anderson Language and Technology Center (ALTEC) is a service department which supports the language learning community at the University of Colorado Boulder and in the state of Colorado.

ALTEC is continually looking for enthusiastic instructors to teach our evening non-credit language classes, held on the CU Boulder main campus. Our students are adult learners, mostly comprised of CU Boulder faculty, staff, graduate students, alumni, retirees, and community members. As the classes are for enrichment only with no tests, our adult learners are highly motivated to learn the language for use in their profession, social life, and travels. The languages we offer are driven by student interest, so we are excited to host many different languages, such as Spanish, Swedish, and Swahili, to name a few.

 

If you have experience teaching language and are interested in teaching with ALTEC in the future, please email your résumé to altec@colorado.edu with the language(s) you are able to teach in the subject line. We will reach out to you via email when a teaching opportunity for that language becomes available.
