Study Group Leaders for Teacher Seminars in Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews, Paris, and Boston.
Our Teacher Seminars are week-long residential seminars in July, designed for teachers, librarians, school administrators and other educational professionals.
Qualifications and Experience
We are looking for Junior Research Fellows (JRFs), tenured Fellows or other professional academics.
Applicants should be based locally to our individual Teacher Seminars in Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews, Paris, or Boston. We do not provide accommodation or travel to or from a Seminar each day.
The role of a Study Group Leader is more of a discussion leader and facilitator than a teacher. The aim is to invigorate participants’ existing interest in the subject (since they are familiar with the general topic). We’re really looking to make participants engage with a subject in new and innovative ways. In addition to the week-long commitment, appointed Study Group leaders submit short reading lists to our New York office in around late May for optional preparatory reading for their Study Group participants. This helps build direction, excitement and provides momentum for a week-long Seminar.
Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews, and Boston
We offer a number of Study Groups in each location (see below) and each group meets six times during the week-long Teacher Seminar. Each meeting runs from 9.00am to 11.30am, after which Study Group leaders take their group to a local site of interest or a suitable class on a student program that we run in the same city. Meeting sessions conclude by 12.30pm. A Seminar Director is on-hand to provide support and advice if necessary and there are no afternoon or evening commitments.
We offer English- and French-speaking Study Groups. The daily schedule involves morning, afternoon, and evening commitments, and is integrated with the plenary program of speakers, events, and field trips.
