The fellowship will entail instructing a diverse student body of Nepalese college students in oral and written English comprehension, focusing on improving international proficiency throughout their tenure at DWIT. The fellow will be expected to quickly assess the language proficiency of all students and then develop a diverse curriculum to address the different levels of proficiency. The fellow will be responsible for teaching one class to each of the four grade levels. Class size is a maximum of 24 students, with a total of 48 students per grade level. Students have learned best when professors use blended learning techniques including pop culture, current events, social media and experiential learning. Such practices better equip IT students to perform in international jobs where they interact with English speakers from multiple backgrounds. Every class needs a minimum of a lesson plan, midterm exam and final exam. However, continuous feedback through written exercise, oral recording and group skill building has proven successful. Each student arrives at DWIT with a diverse set of skills and talents. A successful teacher is able to harness student creativity, talents and non-technical interests to engage the class. Length of fellowship: 5-10 months (option to stay for a half or full school year).
