Teaching a non-credit continuing education class at Oakton can be rewarding in more ways than one! You can earn extra income while sharing your passion with others, and interact with people who share your interests.

Our non-credit instructors are not required to have degrees, but they must be able to demonstrate expertise in their subject area. Our classes are usually held on weeknights in the early evenings for 2 – 2-1/2 hours from about 6:30 or 7 to 8:30 or 9 pm.

Most continuing education classes are held at one of our participating high school sites, but some may be held on Oakton’s Des Plaines or Skokie campus.

We are looking for prospective teachers with expertise in many areas, especially those connected with:

  • Trends in Social Media (e.g., Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, etc.)
  • Language and Culture:  Arabic, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Yiddish
  • Thriving in the new economy
  • 2007/2010 Microsoft Office Application (e.g., Excel, Office Suite, Outlook, Word)
