Become a Teaching/Learning Design Fellow
Change teaching. Change learning. The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is a new teacher preparation program, redefining the way teachers are prepared. Do you want to play a pivotal role in launching the WW Academy? Do you dream of being a teacher? Apply to be a part of the inaugural group of Design Fellows.
The WW Academy needs collaborative, creative entrepreneurs with strong STEM content knowledge who are deeply committed not just to innovation, but also to classroom teaching. Beginning in summer 2017, a small group of Design Fellows will help build and beta-test the Academy as they work toward an initial teaching license in middle or high school STEM fields. Collaborating closely with the faculty and staff of the WW Academy, Design Fellows will help create and test assessments and refine the Academy’s program. At the same time, they will work towards fulfilling the requirements for initial licensure in Massachusetts.
Design Fellow appointments are paid full-time positions and include the opportunity to progress toward teaching licensure.
To indicate your interest in becoming a Design Fellow, please send a CV and a cover letter that describes what you find compelling about the WW Academy and what you would contribute to its development. Questions and materials should be directed to Neema Ndiba at [email protected] or call 609-452-7007 x300. Learn more at www.woodrowacademy.org.
The selection committee has established an application deadline of March 17, 2017. Fellowships are filled on a rolling basis.
