I think what would appeal to me is a kind of adjunct lecturer position. What I'd like is to offer the university a deal where in semesters they are short-handed, I would come in and teach a class for them. When they don't need me, I'd be happy to sit out. That would give them some flexibility in staffing course schedules. My willingness to work only when they need me might be a huge asset to them. In exchange, I would ask not to have to do service work, reasearch, etc. I could also work as an independent consultant or contractor if they like, since I'm not really interested in benefits.

The only problem with that is that the pay is terrible. You shouldn't have much trouble finding positions like that though -- I have an acquaintance who is in charge of finding people to teach courses like this in an academic department in a major research university. She would jump at anyone decently qualified.
