Job Title: Learning and Design Associate for Kiziba and Ethiopia Location: Kigali
Employment status: Full – Time Contract type: Open- ended
Reports to: The Senior Director of Learning and Design Deadline: 08th October, 2021
Since Kepler’s launch in 2013, we are building a model of accessible and quality higher education. We provide a different kind of education – one that combines in-person, online, and on-the-job learning in service of a singular goal: decent jobs for young Africans. And we have been successful, with more than 90% of scholars employed within six months of graduating. Kepler, through a partnership with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), has enrolled more than 1,000 students across our campuses in Kigali and the Kiziba refugee camp in Western Rwanda.
We have entered into a dynamic time at Kepler. Over the next few months, Kepler hopes to become locally accredited in Rwanda through Kepler College and we are expanding our academic offerings and programs in Rwanda and Ethiopia.
The Learning & Design team at Kepler is responsible for researching and structuring new academic programs at Kepler in collaboration with the academic team. The team is searching for two Learning and Design Specialists who will work closely with various academic units at Kepler to support teachers and academic managers to design and implement effective programs. One specialist will work with the teams in Kiziba Refugee Camp in Rwanda and in Ethiopia, while one will work with the Kepler College team in Kigali. Both positions are based in Kigali with the possibility of travel to other programs.
People in this position will receive in-depth training in learning & design principles and processes in order to support teachers and the academic leads of each site in planning the day-to-day curriculum. They will provide training and support as needed to academic staff as well as assist in organizing and project managing the build-out of new curriculum and management of current curriculum revisions. Learning and Design Specialists will also work together with the rest of the Learning and Design team to research and implement new pedagogical approaches and strategies as Kepler grows.
