Job Description

Exploration Summer Programs is seeking creative and experienced educators to serve as Pre-Season Curriculum Advisors (PCAs) during the upcoming winter and spring for our summer enrichment courses. PCAs communicate with course instructors via phone and email to help them transform their ideas into creative lesson plans for a three-week enrichment course that will be taught during the summer.

 

Exploration offers more than 155 unique courses and more than 90 unique workshops in a wide variety of academic disciplines. (Please, see our website, http://www.explo.org , for a sample of the courses we offer.) These enrichment courses are hands-on, not-for-credit, and also, ungraded. They are taught by summer instructors who are passionate about the fields in which they are teaching, but who are primarily undergraduate and graduate students with little to no professional teaching experience. The primary responsibility of the PCA is to mentor these young teachers in the development of student-centered, activity-based curriculum that will encourage our summer students to challenge themselves, discover the world of people and ideas, and experience the joy of learning.

 

An online training for PCAs takes place in the late fall. Curriculum advising takes place from January through May. Most PCAs advise between one and six courses or workshops. PCAs coordinate an advising schedule with teachers, such that the advising process for a single course or workshop is completed in a six-week period (of your choosing). A full course takes approximately 15 hours to advise; a workshop approximately 7 hours to advise.

 

PCAs may elect to receive either monetary compensation or graduate credit (or a mixture of the two) for their work as PCAs. PCAs are compensated $200 per full-course successfully completed and $100 per workshop successfully completed. Exploration is a Professional Development Provider and, as such, can award re-certification hours for this work as well.
