Are you an experienced educator who wants to take their career in a different direction?

HFLI’s Design Fellow is a full-time employee responsible for the effective administration/coordination of major projects, while actively developing the knowledge and competency to successfully manage, design and facilitate HFLI programs. Success in this position will be evidenced by: delighted project partners and co-workers; acquisition of requisite design thinking mindsets, skills, knowledge and tools; growth in design and delivery of HFLI immersive learning programs; willingness to be a generous learning partner, a humble-but-avid learner, and an “all-in” teammate.

HFLI has a strategic priority to invest in continued excellence/highest quality learning experiences. The Design Fellow position is aligned with this priority by addressing the current need for daily support on ongoing HFLI project needs. Furthermore, it addresses anticipated future needs by providing professional development for an educator with a personal interest in design thinking, supporting their trajectory towards becoming an HFLI learning experience designer/ facilitator and program manager.

·      Work closely with the Programs team to acquire design thinking mindsets, skills, knowledge, and tools, especially as they apply to innovative use in K-20 and youth programming.

·      Develop a comprehensive understanding of HFLI’s instructional focus:

o  Deeper Learning by Doing™, an instructional approach that is immersive, hands-on, real-world;

o  Design Thinking as the underlying methodology for transformational impact;

o  Intentional DEI lens embedded in program design, reflected in touch points;

o  Differentiation of delivery to reflect effective practices for online, blended or in-person learning;

o  Applied empathy and knowledge of the needs of adult learners in the workplace or young people in formal learning settings; and,

o  Intent to maximize engagement through sustained relationships, individual growth and actionable outcomes.

·      Work closely with the Programs team to develop competency as a designer and facilitator of HFLI’s immersive learning programs, both online and in-person. That competency includes the use of tech tools such as MURAL, Zoom, HFLI’s Learning Management System, etc.

·      Learn and embody HFLI’s brand throughout work products, such as documents, communications, and partner interactions.

·      Expand knowledge of HFLI’s work by providing support as needed on HFLI engagements or deadlines.
