Internews aims to be agile to work where information is most under threat and most urgently needed. For this purpose, Internews embeds virtual learning in its operational strategy to allow for continued remote operations necessary for the pandemic and for working in closed environments, as well as promoting cost and environmentally responsible internal and external training options.
Internews is building a roster of instructional design consultants to support its teams and programs in designing digital training. The consultants will work at different stages of the training process, such as needs analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. The instructional designers can bring their competencies to various digital training modalities, synchronous and asynchronous, such as e-learning module design, hybrid learning design, webinar material design, scenario and simulation, facilitation, LMS management, etc. We encourage applicants to tell us about their strengths in these areas, as multiple opportunities may arise with different focus areas. Consultants will work in close collaboration with the program or the project manager and will consult the Internews Learning and Training Specialist.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Internews programs are currently designing digital training using various modalities, such as asynchronous self-paced e-learning, blended learning, webinars, and WhatsApp-based training. Internews uses an LMS to host and disseminate digital training, manage audiences, and access learning analytics.
The digital training packages are designed for audiences from different regions and languages with varying learning habits in the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. These consultancies will provide support in various areas to specific courses.
This is a remote-based consultancy.
All remote candidates will be considered. However, you must have work authorization in your location that does not require sponsorship from Internews. Additionally, there are locations in which Internews is not able to support fully remote candidates.
