Learn cutting-edge digital pedagogy and practice: Apply now to become a Scholar Apprentice

LSi is offering an apprenticeship for learning leaders interested in using the Scholar Approach to build capacity, produce locally-situated knowledge, and foster deep learning outcomes. This internship will provide practical experience and help rapidly develop skills and competencies needed to design, facilitate, and manage Scholar-based digital courses.

  • The apprenticeship can be full-time or part-time, but the commitment has a three-month minimum.
  • You may be based anywhere – the Scholar team operates as a virtual global team.
  • We don’t care about your pedigree. We do care about your capabilities to deliver amazing results using the latest and smartest approaches to technology, pedagogy, and content.

The Scholar Partnership is the conjunction of the University of Illinois College of Education, the Geneva Learning Foundation, and Learning Strategies International.

Scholar courses currently in preparation by the Geneva Learning Foundation and its partners cover a range of topics, from the global mobilisation of ambulance and other pre-hospital emergency care workers in the face of growing violence against health care workers… to the first course on collective impact for computer science education.

Preference will be given to applicants who have completed the Geneva Learning Foundation’s #DigitalScholar course.

The first apprentices will start in January 2017, but applications are welcome on an ongoing basis.

Creative Digital Solutions and LSi join forces

Productive diversity

Geneva and London, 15 December 2015 – Creative Digital Solutions (CDS) and Learning Strategies International (LSi) have joined forces to develop learning experiences at global scale, strengthening LSi’s talent network of learning leaders that provides networked thinking and practical solutions to organisations seeking to do more, better, faster. We share the conviction that no single individual or organization can solve such problems alone – and that unlocking how we learn is a key component of any solution.

In our first collaborative effort, CDS made a key contribution to the learning design of a massive, open online learning system to train civil servants from Ministries of Health in 192 countries to scale up efforts against the world’s biggest killer diseases. The design and development of online learning activities involved creating a peer review essay, a rubric for peer evaluation, and a system for student self-progress reporting and tracking. The solution delivered is an adaptive course suitable for a range of audiences, including policy developers and decision makers who need to adopt and adapt global recommendations to support local, national and global health improvements.

Learning Strategies International (www.LSi.io) creates digital education solutions to reshape and transform the sharing of knowledge for humanitarian, development and global health workers. Creative Digital Solutions (creativedigitalsolutions.org/) consults on and supports the design, development and sharing of innovative and effective teaching and learning experiences.
