Responsibilities :

Founded in 1947, CIEE (Council on International Educational Exchange) sees it as its primary missions to humanize international relations and foster peace through international education and exchange programs that promote intercultural understanding.

A nonprofit, non-governmental study abroad and intercultural exchange organization, CIEE sponsors a wide variety of opportunities for the exchange of ideas and experiences and helps people develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.

The CIEE Paris center opened in 1973. Today, the center hosts a variety of programs, including Open Campus Block (OCB) and French and Critical Studies (FCS) every term. Our study center is currently located in the 6th arrondissement on the campus of the Alliance française.

We are now looking for lecturers to teach two 6-week sections of our course on Fashion and Business in France. As most of our courses, it meets on an intensive schedule (2h30 classes meeting 3 times a week, for a total of 40h). Group size typically ranges from 15 to 20 students. The Spring 2023 course sections will run from Thursday, February 16 to Thursday, March 23. Classes for these two sections are scheduled Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30pm to 3pm and from 4pm to 6:30pm, respectively.

Important: while the role includes teaching all or some of the sessions, we are also looking at candidates who may be interested in (re-)designing the structure and progression of the course, inviting guest lecturers to teach specific topics where appropriate or needed. The course is always in high demand and is now offered 4 times a year, so we are looking for a long-term collaboration.

CIEE uses the learning management system Canvas for its study programs. Our courses involve active student learning, skill development and experiential learning activities (site visits, attending events, guest speakers, round table discussions).

Skills :

Required

- A high level of fluency in English (beyond the subject matter to be taught)

- Highest degree in the field (ABD status is acceptable for doctoral candidates).

 

Preferred

- Familiarity with U.S. higher education, especially when it comes to grading standards and everyday communication with diverse student audiences

- Interest in pedagogy and methodology, as well as experimenting with new teaching techniques and approaches

- Excellent interpersonal skills such as listening, fostering classroom discussion, articulating lectures with more open activity formats, and enthusiasm about course materials

- Previous experience with online Learning Management Systems such as Canvas in a teaching or professional setting

- Interest in addressing students with diverse backgrounds and levels of familiarity on the subject, and getting them to collaborate

- Resourcefulness and creativity with the organization of site visits or guest speaker interventions in the course's learning sequence, and generally with learning outside the classroom.

Qualifications :

- Highest degree in the field (ABD status is acceptable for doctoral candidates).

Other :

Legal permission to work in France is needed, as CIEE does not sponsor visas.
