Applicants with demonstrated commitment to the field of Southeast Asian language pedagogy, and with training and experience in proficiency-based and communicative language teaching, as well as materials development and curriculum design are preferred.

Position Summary: SEASSI is a national, eight-week intensive language institute that uses communicative and proficiency-based methodology as well as the team-teaching approach for instruction in up to nine Southeast Asian languages annually from mid-June through mid-August. The 2017 SEASSI program will be held from June 19 through August 11 and will be preceded by a staff orientation week from June 12-16, 2017.
