The Experiment in International Living – International Group Leader Positions

Greetings and happy 2015!  My name is Maura Walsh and I serve as the Group Leadership Manager for World Learning’s Experiment in International Living.  The Experiment, the founding program of World Learning, has been sending young people abroad for immersive cultural experiences since 1932.  We currently have programs in over 20 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe.

My role is to recruit the 80 exceptional professionals to serve as The Experiment’s International Group Leaders each summer.  I’m currently doing a final push specifically to recruit Group Leaders for our Asia programs (prior to the application deadline of February 4), and I’m hoping you might be able to share information about the leader job opportunity with your ACL/Asian Studies masters students.  I have attached our recruitment flyer (in PDF format), along with a job description and company profile (below).  If you could circulate this information to current students and/or alumni, I would be very grateful.  Also, if there are any other steps you suggest we should take to reach out to your students/alumni, I would appreciate your advice.

You can find more information about our programs and the role of the group leader on our website at www.experiment.org.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have via email or a brief phone call at your convenience.

Thank you for your time, and for any help you can provide in helping us reach qualified applicants for our summer 2015 leader positions.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,

Maura

 

The Experiment in International Living – International Group Leader Positions

The Experiment in International Living is currently hiring exceptional professional individuals to serve as International Group Leaders to guide our summer 2015 programs in over 20 countries worldwide.

 

The Experiment, the founding program of World Learning, has been sending students on immersive abroad programs since 1932, and we continue to remain on the cutting edge of international education.  Our programs provide high school students the opportunity to connect deeply and engage meaningfully with the richness and complexities of another country, while exploring their program country through hands-on experiences in local communities and through the lens of a specific program theme.

Each program has two co-leaders, who work together to guide a group of 10 to 15 high school students on a 3-, 4-, or 5-week journey.  Our leaders are our most critical on-the-ground resource, traveling alongside their group and serving as their students’ primary support throughout the program. Leaders take on a wide range of responsibilities, including helping their students integrate into local cultures and host families, conducting group excursions, and guiding students through discussions of and reflections on their experiences. Leaders work with the Experiment’s US-based staff and in-country partners to maximize students’ health and safety and to ensure the program is meaningful, challenging, and experientially rich.

The Experiment’s International Group Leaders come from diverse backgrounds, but all share a commitment to intercultural and experiential education.  The minimum requirements for leaders are as follows:

  • Have at least a bachelor’s degree
  • Have leadership experience working with young people, preferably high school age students
  • Have in-depth experience in The Experiment’s 2015 program countries/regions
  • Are competent in the language of the program country (level of fluency required varies from program to program)
  • Are flexible, resilient, resourceful, organized, dynamic, and pro-active
  • Are, above all, educators and facilitators

The Experiment covers leaders’ program-related travel expenses, including domestic travel to the Leader Training Workshop in Vermont and then home after the program; meals and lodging during the Leader Training Workshop; international flights to and from the program country; and transportation, lodging, meals, emergency travel medical insurance, communication, and incidentals while on the program.  Leaders benefit from an intensive weeklong professional development training, the chance to experience a familiar culture from a new perspective, and an opportunity to use their language skills and gain new friends and colleagues.  In addition, leaders receive a stipend of $175 per program week.

Applications for 2015 International Group Leader positions are being accepted through February 4, 2015. To learn more about the leader position and to access the online application, please visit www.experiment.org/leaders.

 

Questions? Email Maura Walsh, group leadership manager, at leadership@experiment.org.

 

 

The Experiment in International Living – Company Profile

Each year, hundreds of Experimenters come away from their summer abroad with invaluable new skills, connections, awareness, and knowledge that help them to thrive—and lead—in diverse, intercultural environments.

The Experiment in International Living, the founding program of World Learning, has been offering immersive experiential learning programs abroad since 1932. Today, The Experiment offers summer programs for high school students in Europe; the Americas; Africa, south of the Sahara; North Africa and the Middle East; and Asia and the Pacific.

Sanger Learning Center workshops for teaching assistants

The Sanger Learning Center and the Center for Teaching and Learning are excited to announce two new professional development opportunities for Graduate Teaching Assistants in non-teaching roles. While AI’s and TA’s leading discussions have access to a variety of training and support resources through CTL, the University currently does not have many offerings for TA’s whose duties consist mostly of grading and one-on-one communication with students. In response to this need, we are piloting a free program specifically for TA’s in the College of Liberal Arts.

Best,

GRS 097 course for first-time TAs

GRS 097 is a 0-credit hour course for first-time TAs leading discussion sections in CoLA to gain knowledge about teaching fundamentals.  We piloted the program in CoLA last year and our research indicates that TAs benefited greatly from the seminar in areas such as feeling prepared to teach the subject matter, creating a positive learning environment, and using a range of instructional strategies.  After the seminar, TAs felt more strongly that their teaching influenced student learning and that they were able to reflect upon their teaching practice to keep improving as instructors.
