Wanted: Flexible Linux Instructor

Summer semester is a very difficult time for a lot of CS students. Many of the programs that are run through the other semesters are put on hold as their professors go on nice long sabbaticals, and as such they can't progress through their degrees as quickly as they might want. As such, they have lots of good opportunities to take additional electives, such as Linux classes.

Unfortunately, the instructor we had in line for the Linux 103 and 104 (Guru Labs 275 and 314 classes) also decided to take the summer off for a nice long vacation. This means that while we have an instructor for the first half of the semester (120 and 250 courses), there isn't anyone to teach the second half of the semester.

So, I thought I would make a quick post to see if there is an instructor willing to contract with the University of Utah to teach these classes. They would be teaching from June 19th to July 30th from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Ideally they would need to have knowledge of the material, and know how to teach.

Of there os anyone that interested, please contact Inita Lyon at 801-581-6061 for more information and to schedule an interview.

Tim Gelter here, I stumbled upon this blog post and wondered, why not ask Guru Labs to schedule instructors?
As a Guru Labs instructor myself, I can tell you that chances are high that we could work something out, though you'd likely receive a mixture of instructors as we tend to be out of town every couple of weeks. Email me if you are interested. tgelter at gurulabs dot com

Hello Tim!

That's our next avenue if we need to, but we would rather have a continuity of one instructor in charge of the class. As you said, most instructors are out of town during the week, and so the students wouldn't have a single instructor in charge.

But, if no other option is available, don't be surprised if you get a call! ^_^
