Employment status: Full – Time Contract type: Open- ended
Reports to: Subject Manager for Project Management Deadline: 15th October, 2021
Kepler is a nonprofit university program that is building a transformative model of education-to-employment services for these young people across the region. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the economic mobility of thousands of individuals, families, and communities in all of our countries of operation. We want to reimagine what higher education can look like in sub-Saharan Africa.
Through a rigorous curriculum of in-person, online, and on-the-job learning, Kepler students graduate with the relevant skills and the right attitude to meet the needs of the changing global economy. We partner closely with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) – a global leader in higher education – which allows our students to attain affordable, internationally recognized degrees while studying in East Africa.
All across sub-Saharan Africa, millions of young people struggle every day with access to education and employment – and the kinds of livelihoods that lead to economic security and mobility for themselves and their families. Every young person deserves the chance to be educated; every young person deserves the opportunity to have a meaningful job.
Kepler launched in Rwanda in 2013. Our 50+ staff currently serve 550 students across two campuses in Rwanda – our flagship campus in Kigali, as well as a second campus in the Kiziba refugee camp in Western Rwanda, where we serve refugee learners. Kepler has an ambitious new strategy for the next five years, which will include launching in two new countries; expanding our academic offerings; partnering with other public and private sector universities, and reaching a new level of organizational sustainability.
Kepler is hiring an Assistant Lecturer for Project Management to teach in the Faculty of Management. We are looking for a talented educator with strong skills in project management, operations management, asset management, and related fields. The role will focus on facilitating student-centered learning and conducting project-based assessment.
The Assistant Lecturer will also conduct related activities to support students and Kepler as an organization in constant learning and improvement, including creating, documenting, and sharing best practices. The role includes developing structured lessons, adapting curriculum to best meet student needs, analyzing and utilizing data to support diverse learners, and collaborating with colleagues to holistically develop and support all students at Kepler.
In contrast to traditional lecturing positions, Assistant Lecturers at Kepler are focused on creating student learning experiences that are active and encourage students to be self-guided learners.
