The Benefits of Being on an LGIBooks Project Team
- Working on a real, committed, interdependent teaching team
- Learning, living, & teaching research-based principles of life from a present reality orientation
- Working on the LGIBooks team WILL improve your teaching “team skills,” whether you teach in a traditional classroom environment or in some other educational realm (corporate trainer, yoga/meditation/movement/martial arts teacher, music/art/dance teacher, motivational speaker, parenting teacher, athletic/fitness coach, business coach, tutor, etc.)
- Helping to build a business that would add support to the success of your current teaching and would be a viable long-term business/income source in its own right
- Write a letter or essay (or record a video or audio) about your teaching philosophy, purpose, goals — why you’re a teacher/educator; what your values are as a teacher/educator; your goals/intentions/motivations as a teacher/educator.
- Write a few paragraphs (or record a video or audio) about how you resonate with any one of the current LGIBooks projects; what particularly interests you about it; what questions you have; why you might want to learn and teach about the research-based principles of this project.
- If you have any videos of you teaching a class or part of a class, please send us a link. If you don’t have one, then do a video (or audio) teaching something you care about passionately and share with us.
- A recent resume, or if you don’t have one, just a simple list of your teaching experiences with specifics of dates and locations — if you have old resume, feel free to bring it up to date informally
Interview & Audition Process:
- If we accept your application, we’ll ask you to sign a non-disclosure agreement, and then we’ll schedule an introductory meeting (online or in person) to discuss our unique team production process, including the long-term nature of the commitment to the project, and to discuss you doing an Audition for being on our team.
- If you decide to do an Audition, we’ll provide you with the current working outline of the project, at least five audios developing/exploring the project, and recommendations for you look at least two research articles or chapters.
- Audition format: (1) Write a candid, honest response/evaluation of our working outline: what you like about it; what works; what you don’t like; what you don’t understand; what more you want to know just from the outline; what you’d want to change; how it could be improved ; and (2) Focus on one specific aspect of the outline or audios and either (a) prepare a lesson to teach this “topic” to me (in person or via Skype or via video); or (b) interview one or more researchers I suggest about this specific topic (in person or via some online service) with a recording of the interview(s) and then discuss the interview with me.
- We think the possibility of working with us on the development of this project (and possible future projects) is a valuable enough opportunity for you to do an audition for free or at reduced rate.
If, however, you have substantial high-profile, successful teaching experience, don’t hesitate to ask for a reasonable consulting fee for this audition piece if you would otherwise not apply.
Likewise, if you are currently unemployed or under-employed, don’t hesitate to ask for a stipend for your time and effort at doing an audition for us.
