The majority of our teachers start off as students who have gained knowledge of a certain aspect of EVE and are willing to pass that on to new members. To become a teacher, you do not need to be an expert by any means, and often teachers will begin teaching the basics in one area and later expand the classes they teach as their knowledge and confidence increase.

Please note that the Teacher position is one that requires being a member of EVE University proper, which means you are subject to the [[EVE University Rules]] as any student would. Some of these rules are designed to protect novice players, and experienced capsuleers may find them restrictive. For this reason, experienced pilots outside the University will likely want to work through the [[Joining the Faculty#Becoming_a_Guest_Lecturer|Guest Lecturer program]] instead.
  
===Teacher Induction Programme===

On some special occasions, outside individuals may be inducted into the University proper solely as teachers. However, this process requires that there be good reasons for not being able to work through the Guest Lecturer program. If you believe this applies to you, please contact the [[EVE_University_Management#Personnel Manager|Personnel Manager]].
  
Since EVE University recruitment is geared towards new pilots joining as students, highly experienced players applying to the UNI are often not accepted. The Teacher Induction Programme provides a way for experienced capsuleers to join the University as Teachers by first becoming Guest Lecturers.

See also: Teaching Department

Teaching is the main function of EVE University, which is why our faculty of Teachers and Guest Lecturers is our most important resource. Teaching at EVE University is a rewarding activity in many ways, not least because it gives you the opportunity to help educate the largest student body in EVE, shaping the careers of literally thousands of capsuleers as they begin their journey in New Eden.

The teaching faculty is made of two groups, Teachers, who must be members of EVE University and form the core of the teaching staff, and Guest Lecturers, who are not members of E-UNI and can be anyone experienced in EVE who occasionally or regularly gives lectures to our students. Teachers who leave the University to pursue other interests often continue as Guest Lecturers.

We are always seeking new volunteers, who are willing to step up and teach what they have learned to a new generation of EVE pilots.

Becoming a Teacher

The majority of our teachers start off as students who have gained knowledge of a certain aspect of EVE and are willing to pass that on to new members. To become a teacher, you do not need to be an expert by any means, and often teachers will begin teaching the basics in one area and later expand the classes they teach as their knowledge and confidence increase.

What is expected of a Teacher?

  • Teachers must have a working knowledge of the subject area(s) they wish to teach, and be able to effectively communicate that knowledge.
  • Teachers are expected to conduct classes with reasonable consistency. We ask that as a minimum, they teach at least once every month.
  • They are expected to comply with E-UNI standards of class delivery. This means that they follow the procedures set out in the Guide to Teaching Classes and How to Schedule a Class.
  • They are expected to contribute towards the continued improvement and development of our classes including the Course Libraryand recorded Class Library.
  • They are expected to act appropriately as a member of the University staff and set a positive example to students.

What are the benefits of being a Teacher?

  • The greatest and most important benefit of being a teacher is the knowledge that you are helping others to get the most out of their time in EVE University and increasing their enjoyment of EVE.
  • EVE University always supports its teachers. If you have a class that requires resources (minerals, BPCs, modules, etc), funding can be arranged through the University's logistics department.
  • Teachers can call on the knowledge and advice of the entire faculty and wider University staff. For example: when developing a new class syllabus.
  • Teachers receive an in-game title, have access to the staff and education forums, as well as dedicated in-game chat channel and mailing list.
  • Being an EVE University Teacher can often lead to other roles of responsibility within the University, and can have a positive effect on your wider EVE career.

Applying to become a Teacher

To become a Teacher you must be a current member of Eve University and it is preferred the applicant hold either the Sophomore or Graduate title but sometimes the Teaching Management team will waive this title requirement. For instance, if you have a good, well-thought out idea for a class or you have previous teaching experience.

If you have read all the above and would like to become a teacher, please complete this Application Form.

Exceptional Recruitment

Please note that the Teacher position is one that requires being a member of EVE University proper, which means you are subject to the EVE University Rules as any student would. Some of these rules are designed to protect novice players, and experienced capsuleers may find them restrictive. For this reason, experienced pilots outside the University will likely want to work through the Guest Lecturer program instead.

On some special occasions, outside individuals may be inducted into the University proper solely as teachers. However, this process requires that there be good reasons for not being able to work through the Guest Lecturer program. If you believe this applies to you, please contact the Personnel Manager.

Becoming part of our Guest Lecturer Program

If you are not a member of EVE University, but would like to conduct classes or give special lectures on specific EVE topics, we welcome your participation. Many of our Guest Lecturers are experienced capsuleers who are recognized for their in-depth knowledge and expertise. We encourage anyone who would like to share their knowledge and insight with our students to step forward and volunteer to become part of our Guest Lecturer Program.

The Guest Lecturer Program is open to capsuleers from a wide variety of backgrounds, and we do not discriminate based off playstyle or power block. However, Guest Lecturer typically grants additional access to EVE University, its channels, and its resources. As such, we occasionally may have to turn away qualified applicants that have a problematic history with the University or individuals who have found they have been unable to follow our guidelines in the past. This is a rare case but please don't take it personally, as we do understand sometimes our guidelines don't suit everyone. We appreciate all offers we receive.

What is expected of a Guest Lecturer?

  • There are no activity requirements for Guest Lecturers. They are welcome to teach a one-off class or come back as often as they wish, even developing an entire curriculum if they so choose.
  • At their option, and with prior arrangement with the UNI Teaching Staff, Guest Lecturers may lead UNI fleets as the fleet commander, if they have +5 or better standing to the UNI, or if they are willing to be set +5 or better for the duration of the class, AND these fleets do not violate any EVE University Rules.
  • Guest Lecturers may be asked to submit an outline of their lecture to the Teaching Staff, if there is a significant concern about their knowledge in the area they'd like to teach.

They will also have access to our in-game chat channel, where they can exchange ideas with other UNI educators, or ask for UNI staff to help with their event, including posting it in the UNI in-game calendar.
  • On the day of the class, the Guest Lecturer can start a classroom channel on the UNI Mumble server, and join the Class (EVE Uni) in-game chat channel where they can take questions and post links.

What are the benefits of being a Guest Lecturer?

  • First of all, Guest Lecturers get to pass on their knowledge and experience to a large and eager pack of new pilots, filling their empty heads with the skills they will need to survive and thrive in New Eden.
  • Guest Lecturers have access to our in-game chat channel and mailing list for the University teaching staff. Guest Lecturers also have access to the Scheduled Classes forum and can create their own Mumble channels on the UNI server.
