We’re Hiring!

Get paid to help teachers learn computer science

The Div and Code.org are looking to partner with individuals to deliver high-quality professional development to Oklahoma teachers in a format that’s fun and accessible.

New CS educators need top-notch facilitators

The ideal facilitator is an enthusiastic supporter of computer science education, possesses a connection to Code.org’s equity-focused mission and has a strong background in the computer science, either through teaching or tech industry experience.

Accepted facilitators complete a one-year train-the-trainer program. Facilitators will receive instruction to prepare them to deliver professional development to teachers on the Code.org curriculum during an expenses-paid trip to Code.org’s summer training conference.

Facilitators accepted to the program will work with The Div to plan and lead the following workshops for local teachers in Oklahoma:

  • Four 1-day, in-person workshops during the 2017-18 school year (typically on Saturday)
  • One 5-day workshop in summer 2018

This is a contract position for which facilitators will be competitively compensated. 4 positions are available, 2 per program.

Professional Learning Programs

Code.org will prepare facilitators in two areas. The focus areas share a basic framework and approach, drawn from adult learning theory and best practices for facilitation, that ensures participants are well prepared to lead high-quality training. Read more and apply here:

Priority 1 deadline is January 9th, 2017. At that time applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The final application deadline is February 1, 2017. Contact info@thediv.org with any questions.

Comments

    • If someone was willing to travel to OKC in order to lead 4 weekend workshops a year, then sure! However, there are other Code.org partners all across the country currently recruiting local facilitators. The application is the same (Code.org/faciltator) and you can check out a map of current partners at code.org/educate/regional-partner/partners.
