FIE: Foundation for International Education is an international educational organisation working in partnership with universities and colleges in the US to provide immersive study abroad programs for undergraduate students in London, Dublin, and Amman.

FIE London is currently seeking to contract a qualified, enthusiastic, and confident sessional instructor to teach an undergraduate course on Social Psychology in a Global Context in the spring 2022 semester. The ideal instructor will have a PhD (or be near to completion) in a directly related field and have experience of teaching at the undergraduate level. FIE classes are delivered to undergraduates from a variety of institutions, predominantly American universities. The ideal candidate will therefore have experience teaching American university undergraduates at a range of levels. Faculty are responsible for all aspects of course preparation, teaching, and assessment.

The essence of FIE's teaching and learning strategy lies in using the location of London in creative ways to enable students to develop subject-specific and intercultural competencies. We are interested in experiential education, which may be achieved through research projects and independent studies, academic internships, and service internship placements. We assist our students to become more reflective and to develop their analytical and presentational skills. By understanding a foreign culture, students should gain new perspectives on their own. Therefore, anyone who teaches a subject with us would have to be willing and able to incorporate field trips, site visits, guest lectures, and other experiential components as part of their teaching delivery strategy.

 

We are currently recruiting for a course being offered on Social Psychology in a Global Context.

 

Hours for course: 42 contact hours
Pay for this course: £3,450
Term dates: 10 January 2022 – 25 February 2022
Closing date for applications: ASAP
Interviews will take place in London on dates / will be undertaken on a rolling basis.
 

 

This course combines theoretical studies of social psychology with practical and experiential work and the objective is to consider social psychology in terms of international relationships in order to explore how different cultures and continents think and behave (particularly in light of increasing ease of communication via television and the Internet).

This is a dynamic course which attempts to be relevant to current events worldwide including such topics as global demographics in relation to the Earth’s increasingly limited resources, the evolution of national identities, the role of prejudice and discrimination, factors that contribute to social compliance as opposed to social unrest as well as the impact of the Internet and social media. An experiential research project allows students to adapt their major area of interest within a social and psychological context. This study is expected to help students to develop multicultural insights as part of on-going training in the social sciences.

 

A course outline is available here.

 

This is a sessional fixed term contract for services and not employment. Candidates must be registered, or be able to register, as self-employed in the UK. Those on a VISA may not be eligible for self-employment.
