The Litmus Test.

I am looking for a manager in the field of (distant) education, who:

·     Knows the  difference between remote teaching and online learning;

·     Distinguishes being polite from being nice;

·     Is not afraid to team up with people who may disagree with her/him;

·     Seeks in others professionals skills and knowledge;

·     Values long-term goals over short-term gains;

and

·     who is capable of making bold decisions.

I have a stable full time job (and a gig or two).

But I believe in the future of distant education, (especially for teacher professional development), and would like to switch to that area full time (my last career change).

 

I have all the relevant experience (and more), including, but not limited to, teaching – in its most general sense: selecting the relevant content, developing a syllabus, envisioning learning trajectories, designing teaching strategy, creating teaching tools (to facilitate and guide learning, to assess learning outcomes), and teaching (literally – acting as a teacher).

In addition to my professional experience, I have various publications on the matters of teaching science and philosophy of education (and more).

But my most valuable “badge of honor” is a decade of a proven (!) professional success <= this is the link I would advise to start from, of course, if you are curious enough.

Sincerely,

Dr. Valentin Voroshilov
