School of Wildlife Conservation Learning Experience Designer

We are looking for a Learning Experience Designer who will design and curate powerful learning experiences for the School of Wildlife Conservation’s business and leadership modules with a conservation lens that are being delivered to conservation professionals in a series of online sessions. The School of Wildlife Conservation has leveraged the African Leadership Group's 15 years of leadership development experience to deliver this unique part time executive training programme. The Leadership Pathway for Conservation Professionals is uniquely curated to provide mid-career professionals with the tools to deepen their understanding of leadership and drive their personal and professional journey with vision and success within the conservation sector.

ALU creates powerful ‘learning experiences’, that distribute the focus of learning from the teacher (where it has traditionally been) across a multimodal experience. This experience empowers the learner to drive their own learning, leverage peers, tap into online resources, enable immediate application of skills and knowledge, and use project-based and other innovative forms of assessment. As a Learning Experience Designer, you will use your creativity to curate powerful learning experiences by working collaboratively with The School of Wildlife Conservation academic team. These sessions will need to impart business and leadership skills to conservation professionals.

You will join on a six-month contract as a Learning Experience Designer for the School of Wildlife Conservation (SOWC) and work closely with our Academic Dean and Director of Academics to design and curate powerful learning experiences for business, leadership and conservation modules. Some of your key responsibilities would be to:

Conduct design sessions with SOWC’s academic team to map out key learning outcomes and desired competencies to be developed for the Conservation Leadership Programme.

Develop curriculum of high-quality course content, facilitated in-person learning sessions, and simulation-based experiential learning in consultation with SOWC’s academic team.

To curate detailed session plans for self-paced online learning.

To work to project timelines to deliver world-class, well-designed learning experiences.

Create and update instructor guides and student guides in addition to internal guides for SOWC’s academic team.
