Instructional Design Associates are based in Boston, Nairobi, Hyderabad, and Kigali. This is a full-time role based in Cambridge, MA, but will likely include remote collaboration with teams overseas.

As an Instructional Design Associate, you join a team working to make a difference in the world. In the markets we serve, the number of pupils attending school is soaring, but the quality of most schools, according to international experts, is low. Writers join our Instructional Design department to invest time in producing quality learning materials to improve thousands of children’s daily academic experience.

One core tenet of our approach to instruction at NewGlobe is providing extensive opportunities for pupil practice. That is, we're trying to make the pupil experience less "rote." We create “teacher guides” (daily lesson plans delivered by e-reader), textbooks, and other materials as a means to improving learning gains among pupils. We also create innovative resources for learning outside the classroom, in the form of radio programs, digital storybooks, activity packs, and downloadable learning guides.

*Write & build lesson materials (teacher guides, exams, textbook content)
