Mind Edge Learning

MindEdge is an innovative, educational content provider of online training and courseware to colleges, universities, associations, and corporations.

We feature narrative learning (including simulations, just-in-time scenarios, and case studies) enhanced by technology innovation and a focus on continuous improvement for our content and courses.

We are looking for subject matter experts in the area of humanities or critical thinking/logic to record brief (3 - 5 minute) video lectures in our studio.

Applicants MUST have taught courses in the humanities or critical thinking/logic. Ideal candidates will be able to explain complex topics to students with very basic college preparation and short attention spans without resorting to unnecessary jargon. Ph.D. applicants preferred, but applicants with a master's degree and solid experience teaching humanities or critical thinking/logic will be considered as well.

Video lecturers will be paid $100/hour for studio time and $50/hour for an agreed-upon amount of prep time. Lecturers will need to conduct an interview by Facetime, Skype, or Google hangout and should appear comfortable on screen. Candidates local to the Boston area are preferred, though we may fly the right person to record in our Boston studio or contract with a local studio.

Video work will be performed on a "works made for hire" basis.

Please send a resume/cv and a cover letter explaining your experience teaching and demonstrating your ability to communicate clearly.

If you would like to be considered for contract writing work, please send a writing sample written to a freshman audience.
