creating innovative educational activities, plus the satisfaction
in contributing to the continual improvement of a leading-edge, blended face-to-face / self-study-via-software mix of teaching methodology.
You are an enthusiastic teacher. You thrive not only on being with
people from foreign cultures but also on participating in the dynamic
world of a hybrid classroom / self-study-thru-software learning environment.
You are a leader. You are outgoing and very adaptive, and understand
that life overseas in another culture may be drastically different
from what it is in Canada. You are open-minded, and see challenges
as experiences and opportunities to show your leadership quality.
As every teacher will be representing Canada while overseas, you are
expected to be knowledgeable about Canada's geography, its economy,
its political system, and its people. You will be viewed as a role
model in sharing many of the values of Canada such as environmental
protection, humanitarianism, and volunteerism.
You are expected to be an English native speaker with a university
degree plus a formal TEFL/TESL qualification such as the Vancouver
Community College TESOL Diploma, or a formal education degree
focusing on ESL or CALL (Computer-Aided Language Learning). Ideally you also have had some teaching experiences,
and previous experience of living abroad.
You are computer literate and willing to continuously learn. You are
comfortable in using email, a web browser and a word processor (such
as Microsoft Word). You can touch type at 40 wpm. You are expected to
be familiar with the Greenwood e-learning materials so that you can guide students with their homework.
(1) Provide "traditional" face-to-face classroom ESL instruction, and (2) guide students to the use of Greenwood self-study multimedia materials as homework.
Working hours will usually be between 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, and involve
morning and afternoon classes, 5 days per week. You are expected to
be in the host school for 40 hours a week of which up to 25-30 are
contact teaching hours.
Greenwood teachers are leaders in their fields and are expected to
initiate innovative blended learning activities for their students.
