Where to Apply

MovingWorlds are looking for an instructional designer with experience in designing e-learning programs and online interactive community-based education to help MovingWorlds scale its professional development programs.

In 2020, MovingWorlds invested in a Learning Management System and have integrated it with their platform and back-end systems to help with automations and workflows. MovingWorlds also has a community site, which it hopes to integrate into the LMS.

MovingWorlds is looking to hire a contractor for a 3-to-6-month engagement, with the potential offer for full-time employment after. They will consider applications for both full-time and part-time support (minimum of 16 hours / week).

The ideal candidate will have deep experience in instructional design for adults, community-based learning modules, e-learning, and who cares deeply about social impact.

Work will primarily fall into 7 categories:

1: Learning Management System Design and Optimization
You’ll help reformat their existing learning content and optimize it for their new Learning Management System. This will include recommendations for structuring content, creating content, and program managing the process. You’ll know that you’ve been successful when users engage in the content in their LMS and They see a learning lift on key topics.

2: Community-Based Learning Interaction
Work with the MovingWorlds Institute Director to optimize the content, structure, and interactions on their LMS for community- and peer-based learning. You’ll know that you’ve been successful here when data tells them that learning experiences for their members are increasing over time.

3: New Learning Program Development
Building on your skills in instructional design, you will help build the structure and learning program to move one of their pilot programs to its next phase. You will collaborate directly with the Director of the MovingWorlds Institute, Senior Corporate Program Manager, and the CEO. You’ll know that you have been successful when their program has moved to the LMS and participants rate it at or above existing quality related to meeting their learning objectives.

4: Content and Homework/Assignment Creation
Programs and learning courses will benefit from homework/assignments. This position will help develop the assignments that will complement group-based sessions, online learning courses, and self-paced work to help people achieve learning goals.

5: Measurement
Work with their team to improve upon and add new metrics to measure the efficacy and quality of their learning content, sessions, assignments, and programs.

6: Human-Centered Approach
In all their programs, MovingWorlds obsess over listening to their stakeholders and designing on their behalf. To do your work, you’ll have to interview, observe, and receive feedback from their user base on all of the above topics.

7 (optional): Facilitation of Real-Time Sessions
Sometimes, programming might require facilitation. MovingWorlds has staff trained in facilitation, but they might need help as their programs continue to grow. Especially if this is something you are energized by, there will be opportunities for you to facilitate sessions as part of the programs.
