PAEA Seeks Workshop Facilitators
Are you a seasoned educator interested in developing fellow faculty? Are you looking for an exciting leadership opportunity allowing you to play a role in helping develop your fellow PA educators around the country?
If so, we have the perfect opening for you: PAEA is currently seeking individuals to serve as facilitators for the PAEA Pando™ Workshops. All PA educators are hungry for professional development, and PAEA strives to provide the highest quality educational opportunities to meet that need. In order to do so, we need people like you to help us — so put your teaching expertise to good use and apply to be a workshop facilitator today.
PAEA is seeking facilitators who work well in teams, are experienced educators, have excellent presentation skills, and infuse their work with innovation and creativity. Applicants should demonstrate the ability to lead group activities effectively, and understand how to use different techniques to engage and facilitate learning among adult learners.
PAEA recruits for a general facilitator pool and then assigns facilitators to specific workshops based on their unique skills and contributions. Facilitators will remain in the pool and will be called upon as workshop needs are identified.
Facilitators are expected to review and understand the workshop’s existing curriculum, and to tailor the learning session activities to best facilitate learning and meet the competencies as identified in the curriculum.
Facilitators will actively participate in regular conference calls with their facilitator team during program development and coordination, meeting deadlines for submission of materials and resources as defined by the project leaders. Additionally, facilitators may be asked to engage with attendees prior to the workshop and then serve as a mentor and/or resource for attendees during the workshop and as needed in follow-up.
Facilitators must be present for the entire assigned workshop. The fall workshops will take place October 23–25, prior to the 2017 PAEA Education Forum. Future opportunities will be identified at a later date. Facilitators are supported for hotel accommodations for the corresponding number of workshop days with round trip airfare, transportation to the workshop location, and food and beverages as indicated in the PAEA travel policy.
- Minimum two years’ experience as an educator (If you are interested in facilitating Clinical Coordinators 101, at least 3 years’ experience as a clinical coordinator is required.)
- Attendance at a previous workshop preferred, but not required
- Cover letter
- Video of you teaching using a unique teaching style (about 5 minutes. It should be uploaded to a video hosting site, such as YouTube or Vimeo.)
- Letter of recommendation from your program director or supervisor
*Applications without all materials will not be considered.
The deadline to apply is April 30.
All applications will be reviewed to ensure all criteria are met and that experience aligns with the Association’s needs. Select applicants will be contacted for a video interview.
We encourage past applicants to apply again. Women, minorities, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
