Part-time online positions,

Posted by on June 2, 2014 – a site dedicated to careful and conscientious learning, partnership, and sustainable community development across cultures and around the world – is hiring for two part-time positions that begin August 1: Social Media Director and Director of Evaluation.

Responsibilities can be fulfilled online. Both positions will continue for one year and may be renewed depending upon performance and sponsor support.

The Social Media Director will spend ten hours per week engaged in activities relating to ongoing addition of resources as well as interaction with followers, readers, and allies via Facebook and Twitter. The individual who fills the position must therefore be familiar with social media and capable with basic WordPress functionality, or willing to learn.

Ideally the Social Media Director will at least have a graduate-student-level grasp of the fields of international education and service-learning, with a strong emphasis on community-driven assumptions in learning, partnership, and research. This individual will be the primary person responsible for catching trending articles on international voluntourism, community-engaged education, civic universities, global universities, and efforts to leverage universities’ role as partners in building a more just and sustainable world.

The social media director will be expected to fulfill at least 10 hours per week completing work for the site. The individual must keep regular hours, though those hours may be set according to that person’s fall schedule. By Thursday at 1 pm each week (Central Time), the Social Media Director will send to the Editor a list of the 5 most read, most provocative, or otherwise most important articles relating to the site’s focus area. The Social Media Director will also regularly be asked to add additional new resources to the research wikis accumulated on the website. Typically these requests will come directly from the Editor, or through the Editor’s request to review a particular open access journal for such resources. The Social Media Director will receive a monthly stipend of $400.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter and resume, along with names and contact information for three references, to by June 15.

The Director of Evaluation will work to support relationships, data analysis, and report writing through cooperation with ten institutions that are participating in a pilot pre- / post- study of high impact educational practices. The Director of Evaluation should anticipate some ebb and flow in respect to work hours. Specifically, mid-September through mid-October will require a surge in activity.

The Director of Evaluation must be highly organized, efficient, and comfortable with quantitative data, qualitative data, narrative writing, and basic report formatting skills. The Director should also be comfortable learning how to use new web-based survey applications, developing rules within those surveys, and maintaining openness and flexibility regarding how best to adapt new technologies to evaluation. The Director of Evaluation will be paid $25 per hour on a contract basis, with anticipation of approximately forty hours ($1,000) per month throughout the year, though some months will be heavier than others.
