Description

English Co-Teaching and Critical Skills Facilitator - Higher Education Volunteers will be part of the Teaching English Leadership & Life Skills (TELLS) program. Volunteers will be placed in either high schools (MEDUCA) or universities (UDELAS) to support the training of future English teachers and the English proficiency of students from different focuses. This will help the Ministry of Education in their initiative to provide bilingual education to all students in Panama and will help better prepare Panamanians to be competitive in the global workplace.

The Volunteer’s focus will vary depending on the institution in which they are placed. Examples of potential priorities include providing conversational English classes for interested groups of students, visiting university extensions, and giving seminars on teaching methodologies to professors and students. Volunteers will work to give professional development opportunities to the English professors they work with, and may help with co-planning and co-teaching, observation and feedback, curriculum development, assessment tools, developing didactic materials, or designing and facilitating teacher workshops and seminars. Volunteers may also work on leadership and professional skills development opportunities for students.
