We’re looking for an instructional designer who will help us execute on a new vision for adult ESL learning. Tactically, that means you’ll redesign our current courses, create many new ones that can be used on our online tools as well as in our classrooms.
It’s important that you are someone who understands curriculum design best practices, but you are not beholden to one way of teaching. You also need to work fast and smart. You won’t have the luxury of months on end, to develop a single course; you’ll have to be vigilant and strategic about how courses are designed. You need to think in terms of English as a second language. Because we are focused on teaching adult ESL, and Business English in Japan, all our material needs to be designed with consideration of this demographic – e.g. what is their main purpose of studying English, what do they need to learn to communicate successfully in an English speaking business/social environment, and how we can support them as they apply what we teach to their own world.
You must be capable of designing new courses and redesigning our current ones that can be used in our classrooms, online learning application and develop teaching techniques that can be applied when delivering a lesson. You must be someone who can direct your own research, take initiative and be able to combine L&D best practices with human-centered design techniques to create world-class learning experiences. You will be required to also tailor our curriculum for specific corporate training engagements, develop assessments for learning programs, create learning content for our online learning tool (e.g. 2 minute pre-lesson and post-lesson videos) and create a teacher training program that will strengthen our organization’s ability to deliver high quality learning experiences and bring the curriculum you design to life.
