Job Description for Business Teacher, Postsecondary

A business teacher in the postsecondary realm teaches the subject of business in a college or university environment. The business teacher will usually have to follow state and school guidelines, as to what should be taught in the curriculum. The teacher may be given the curriculum by the school, but he or she may also choose to suggest changes to the curriculum for future classes. Individual lesson plans are usually left up to the teacher. Therefore, it is important to be able to come up with engaging and meaningful lesson plans, so that the students can easily retain the information. The business teacher may choose to include teaching aids, such as videos, photos, class notes, and other visual aids, which will help the student to understand the material. Creating lesson plans will usually be done outside of class time. This preparation time may or may not be paid, depending on the situation.
