Online teaching- flexible but not good work-life balance

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsInstruction can be fully online and on a mostly flexible schedule, with weekly deadlines and some daily requirements. While it is text-only, you can add your own multimedia to make it more engaging and effective.

ConsIf you have a day job M-F their schedule (T-Sun) can really mess up the week and you end up working 7 days a week. Recently their policies changed to increase Instructor load without a commensurate pay raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not overburden instructors and pay more in accordance with prevailing Higher Education rates. Please look into recruitment procedures and academic advising strategies to ensure college-readiness of students.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This is a waste of your time.

    Adjunct Teaching Assistant (Former Employee)

    I worked at Ashford University as a contractor for more than a year


    Pros: Get experience with grading a high volume of student work,… Cons: Low quality of education for students, unreasonable work load for pay,… Advice to Senior Management: You can run your online classroom like a for-profit institution or you can make a difference in your student's lives; you can't… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
