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:
