We are an unconventional non-profit school located on the Thonburi campus of a state-run university, King Mongkut's

University of Technology (KMUTT). Darunsikkhalai School for Innovative Learning is a

constructionist and project-based learning school in southwestern Bangkok, Thailand.

Constructionism is a learning philosophy developed by the late renowned MIT professor Seymour Papert

that focuses on students developing their own ideas and understanding of concepts through

hands-on learning. A collaboration with Stanford University has provided DSIL students with

the first fabrication lab in southeast Asia which allows students to have access to digital

fabrication technology including laser cutting and 3D printing. DSIL provides bilingual (Thai -

English) elementary and high school education with an emphasis on personal development,

sustainability, and mindfulness.

Our job as a learning advisor is to facilitate core subject learning three days a week and to

support students’ individual project-based learning on Thursdays and Fridays. Projects range

from art, design, and media to environmental science, engineering, and innovation. The

academic year is split into trimesters allowing each student to complete three projects a year and

focus on a variety of subjects. At the end of each trimester, students share the skills and

knowledge they gained in an exhibition. Each project has both Thai and English-speaking

teachers.

The role of a learning advisor can change very much from day-to-day depending on the needs of

the students. The job requires flexibility, patience, and a passion for mentoring and developing

young minds. Teachers may be asked to work with any age group, from 6 to 18 years old, and

may also be asked to work outside their area of expertise. Because of this, teachers have four

weeks between each term to plan and prepare for their next project.

We are looking for native English-speaking teachers interested in working in an environment

where the primary goal is to motivate students to pursue their own learning goals. Previous

experience in education is helpful but not required, although experience with alternative or

progressive education will be a major benefit. More important than teaching experience is

expertise or interest in one or more subject areas. English-Speaking Teachers may be asked to

teach 2-3 English classes and one project class, providing a total of 18-22 contact hours per

week.

If you are interested, please email your resume and transcripts (unofficial ones are okay for now) to santi.tis@kmutt.ac.th .

All applicants must have a bachelor's degree or higher.
