Location: Maiduguri IRC Field Office, with travels to Damaturu
Duration: approximately 1 month short term consulting contract (with opportunity for further collaboration).
IRC is looking for a Designer to support the prototyping phase of a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) project in Nigeria. The project is being led by the IRC and the Harvard EASEL Lab.
The project’s objectives are to create -- with teacher feedback -- a toolkit of, easy-to-use, and effective strategies (“kernels”) that promote children's social-emotional development in the classroom and throughout schools. Importantly, the strategies we create in this project should stand alone (i.e., not require traditional lessons or extensive teacher training) and can be selected and used by teachers at their discretion, based on specific student or classroom needs and teacher's own preference or style.
The role is a one month consulting contract, based in IRC Maiduguri Field office with some travels to Damaturu/Yobe. This is a limited contract with opportunities for further collaboration with the IRC.
After a first phase of design research, we will have developed an initial set of Social and Emotional Learning strategies, or “kernels”, which we aim to test and iterate for 3 weeks to 1 month, with different groups and variations during in March 2020. We are looking for an experienced designer to lead these early prototyping activities. This is where you come in! If you have design research experience, prototyping experience, an interest in education programs, and creative problem solving skills, you can help finalize the different prototypes for our project.
The Innovation Designer will work in close collaboration with our IRC Education team and Monitoring and Evaluation colleagues in Nigeria, our partners at the Harvard EASEL Lab, as well as the IRC Education and Research and Innovation teams in IRC HQ in New York.
