Acad. Job: Instructor, Russian Immersion – virtual Language Training Center (Concordia College)

Deadline: Open Until Filled

Our Language Training Center at Concordia Language Villages is seeking to add a new team member to our August virtual immersion programs. Given the timing of our sessions (08/03 – 08/14, and 08/17 – 08/28), it could be a wonderful opportunity for any Russian language and culture enthusiast to master their online teaching skills and experiment with creating a cyber-immersion environment for our students.

In these challenging but advantageous times, we would welcome all innovative and unconventional approaches leading to our students’ success and satisfaction.

We cannot give any promises as of the moment, but in theory, these online programs may develop into a regular LTC offering, and thus, our summer instructors may become our year-long team members, including on-site sessions (when time and situation permit us to reopen).
