Digital learning intern (Bilingual French/English)

Job description

We work with international organizations to develop ambitious, compelling digital learning journeys to help humanitarian, global health, and development workers progress to impact. This requires us:

  • to think as educators beyond the confines of courses to transmit knowledge, and
  • to consider learners as agents of change to improve the state of the world.


What we are looking for

We are looking for our next great digital learning intern ready to break out of the obsolete learning technologist mold and blossom into a true learning leader.


Location

  • We are most interested in finding the right intern who happens to be based in Geneva, Switzerland. 
  • But we are a global, distributed team very open to welcoming an intern from anywhere.


Skill sets that interns will get to practice and apply include one or more of:

  • Learning design to tackle wicked problems in distributed networks.
  • Theory and practice of peer learning methodologies and communities of practice.
  • Management and coordination of mentoring and tutoring networks.
  • Data management and analysis skills (Excel, R, Stata, Tableau, etc.).
  • Experience in mixed methods research for education or other social sciences.
  • Experience in radio (esp. community-based) or other spoken word formats such as podcasting.
  • YouTuber-style video production (prepare, shoot, edit, distribute) using Final Cut Pro X.

Alumni of the Geneva Learning Foundation’s #DigitalScholar program are especially welcome to apply.


Why it’s great to join our team

We work hard to deliver amazing learning experiences that make a difference, but our approach to work provides for a lot of flexibility:

  • Our team works remotely, so you can be located anywhere and work from home.
  • You will join a global network of talented and high-potential LSi Associates.
  • Mutilingual candidates are welcome because we work in English and French but also produce courses in other languages (Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Chinese).

All LSi interns receive top-notch training and coaching, access to amazing learning opportunities for professional development, and can benefit from our mentoring programme for learning leaders.


How to apply

  • Your motivation letter should demonstrate your impeccable writing skills. (Applications without a motivation letter may be discarded.)
  • Please include links (in your CV or your motivation letter) to at least two projects that demonstrate your capabilities. Be specific about your role and responsibilities in each project.
  • Shortlisted candidates may be invited to take a written test.

About LSi and the Scholar Partnership

  • Based in Geneva and a member of the Swiss EdTech Collider, LSi’s mission is to help international organizations execute change.
  • The Scholar Partnership is the conjunction of the University of Illinois College of Education, the Geneva Learning Foundation, and LSi.
  • Together, we develop ground-breaking digital learning initiatives to accelerate knowledge, network, and leadership development that can help tackle complex problems in global health, development, and humanitarian work.
