    Pros

    I teach and develop training material at the Building Performance Lab of the School of Professional Studies. Lab management/personnel and colleague instructors are highly qualified people and a real pleasure with whom to work. It's a progressive environment where we are offered regular training in adult teaching and experience in the classroom is regularly discussed for the continuous improvement of teaching materials and methods. Compensation is quite good.

    Too bad that it is not a full time job.
