We’re looking for an Instructional Designer to join our Program Staffing and Training Team on a temporary, part-time basis to elevate our existing program leader training. This training includes both online modules as well as in-person training, and covers a wide variety of topics — from cultural competency to program safety to expense reporting. You’ll work closely with our Program Staffing and Training Team for six months from December 2017 through June 2018. During that time you will be responsible for auditing and improving our program leader training to ensure it results in the identified outcomes and core competencies required to lead our student travel programs. As an expert in adult learning, you’ll adjust and re-design both our online training content and our facilitator-led training materials. You’ll lean on existing feedback and identified training needs, as well as your own expertise, to create training content and ensure success in delivery. Understanding the diversity of program leaders and our global operations, as well as how program leaders learn, is essential for your success. This position reports directly to the Director of Program Staffing and Training.
