ICT Curriculum Development Specialist

Before You Apply

Peace Corps Response positions are open to returned Volunteers or U.S. citizens with significant professional and technical experience.

Project Description

A Peace Corps Response Volunteer is needed to serve as a Curriculum Development Specialist for Information and Communication Technology for Ifugao State University. The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) program is a fairly new program that started in 2007 and has gone through three revisions in the last ten years. The most recent revision was done in 2013. With the upcoming academic integration of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), there is a need to ensure that learners are maintaining global competitiveness. This can only be realized if its curriculum and learning facilities are in accordance with global and industry-based standards.

A Curriculum Development Specialist with at least 2 years of experience in the IT industry and knowledge in the areas of software development, JAVA, database management and networking is needed to help update the current best practices and curriculum that the university is implementing. The Curriculum Development Specialist will review the current curriculum of IFSU’s BSIT program as well as observe other ICT schools in the area to see what best practices can be pulled from to design modernize the current curriculum and training modules. With this new curriculum the Peace Corps Response Volunteer will conduct workshops to faculty and staff on how best to teach the new training modules. The Peace Corps Response Volunteer will also design and assist in the implementation of a centralized network of laboratories. The goal of this assignment is to provide guidance in the advancement of the BSIT curriculum and training on ICT instruction with the faculty.

Please note that these are approximate departure dates and may change.
