Global Challenges faculty should have experience working on at least one of the global challenges and an interest in designing and supporting students in engaging with these challenges. You don’t need to be an expert in pedagogy, but must be open to embracing new ways of teaching and supporting learning. As an institution, we approach education from first principles, empower individuals to design, test, and implement creative new ideas, and work closely together to craft transformative learning experiences. We are deeply passionate about our students and excited by the challenge of building high impact learning.
The Global Challenges Program prepares students to work on the world’s toughest problems. Students develop leadership, entrepreneurship, and problem-solving skills, tools for moonshot and unconventional thinking, and the discipline to direct their own learning around big problems. The program involves a combination of project-based experiential learning, flipped classrooms, peer-to-peer teaching, and student-directed learning.
You will join as a founding member of our Global Challenges program. Consequently, your role will involve a blend of design, facilitation, and administration of the global challenges program. You will be responsible for designing parts of the curriculum, delivering and iterating on curriculum designed by others. Your day to day will include organising sessions, facilitating discussions, reviewing student assignments, advising and encouraging self-direction, and providing regular feedback based on clearly defined rubrics.
You will also work closely with the Head of the Global Challenges Program and our Learning Design Lead to constantly tweak and enhance the program and curate powerful learning experiences for our students. On a higher level, you will be involved in the co-creation of a vision and strategy for the program, setting up the path that will allow students to extend the skills they learned to the outside world as the future leaders of the African Continent.
