Vision: a hub of passionate Educators creatively teaching a wide range of colourful content
on a rotating basis.
We are gifted with a treasure trove of subject matter specialists living or passing through the Costa Ballena area. OJA creates a collaborative work environment and creativity hub where such specialists can access the resources and support needed to help them deliver their craft, and be rewarded intrinsically and financially. Whether educators deliver one or multiple specialist courses, OJA will provide a supportive platform to enable them to create an interaction with students that is focused, rich and engaging.
What this will look like in reality?
A marine biologist submits an 8-week* science course. After the Educator proposes the course topic, the interest and viability of the course is affirmed by student/parent sign-up:
Courses and outcomes are decided by the Educator and agreed with students and parents via their desire to sign-up for the class.
Administration (registration, documentation, assessment, record keeping) is overseen by OJA.
* Educators who wish to create shorter (less than 8-week courses) can do so as time slots will be reserved for ad hoc 'visiting' educators.
Each Educator partners with a learning and development coach to refine the course offering, distill learning outcomes and create an impactful learning experience.
Educators maintain creative rights and sovereignty at all times over their content and ideas. The coach's role is supportive and complimentary; helping to draw out the personal essence of the Educator's brilliance, and to craft it into an exemplary and relevant learning experience for students.
In addition to the rotating team of specialists, OJA will employ a team of more permanent, resident teaching staff to provide continuity for core subjects.
We are now actively recruiting Educators
to submit proposals for elective courses for the first 8 week term cycle starting in Feb 2022.
If you have a passion and a burning desire to impart with your knowledge, skills and experience; to co-create, craft and deliver engaging courses for tweens and early teens, please get in touch.
We are looking for Educators who can teach any of these subjects and more...
