Call for teachers to the 2016 SAIL course on-board tall ship Fryderyk Chopin with start on 14th of August in La Coruña, Spain, and end on 28th of August in Blyth, England.
We are looking for motivated teachers coming from different disciplines covering aspects of sustainability in a broad sense, thus creating an inter-disciplinary and international learning environment, which can introduce students in complex issues related to sustainability. Teachers who are interested in trying something new – combining tall ship sailing with an unconventional teaching environment, which is extra-ordinary but can be both physically and mentally demanding. As a teacher you are expected to prepare and plan the course beforehand, as well as correct exercises and essays/reports after the course. English is the language of the course, applying teachers are expected to have an excellent level of English skills.
