    Skype Interview and On-Campus Interview. SKype interview was 15 minutes long and focused on general teaching methods and philosophy of education. On-campus interview included a dinner the night before, teaching presentation, and interview with the search committee. I was given a campus tour and asked to participate in a skills assessment. I watched a video of a pre-service teacher who was struggling during a formal observation. A professor pretended to be that student and I coached her.

    Assistant Professor of Education Interview

    A phone call, which went pretty well, then a visit which was a total whirlwind. So much in a very short amount of time.

    It would have been nice if they had asked or accommodated my dietary restrictions. Taking a strict vegetarian to a steakhouse was a colossal waste of time. That lack of flexibility and appreciation of diversity would be a hallmark of my WKU experience.
