Lecturer volunteering for online-faculty.

Institut de diplomatie publique is looking for freelance scholars/teachers/professors who are interested to help us with establishing new faculties or curriculums based on distance education in any field of their specialty.

Normally our lecturers are juggling daily their lecturing duties and their own research with volunteering to support Public Diplomacy. Our educators are volunteers who are keen to make a difference in the lives of their students and build their skills and confidence to prepare them for their future careers.

Our aim is to attract and recruit motivated and highly-qualified volunteers for educational projects throughout the developing world.

We form global alliances with professors, students, nonprofits, academic departments, and dedicated professionals to spread relevant data, information, ideas, and research to further the study of teaching.

Our goal is to provide free of charge education for Africa, Asia and less privileged migrants around the world, therefore the Institute needs voluntary scholars who are willing to teach and mentor people from the developing nations, and through this way helping the poor nations develop through academic knowledge and skill.

As a volunteer lecturer, you will share aspects of traditions, youth culture or geography of your home country. These lectures will usually last between 45 minutes to one hour each and will be conducted in Spanish, English or French during Public Diplomacy classes for Institute students. Students get the opportunity to practice their skills and expand their knowledge of the world.
