Woodrow Wilson Masters of Education Program

Today’s students hold entire worlds of information in their hands, and they can tailor it to their habits and need. This shift to personalized learning in K–12 classrooms demands teachers who are prepared through a similarly personalized approach. The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is the master’s-level model for that. We’re a new kind of teacher education program, one that focuses on real-world outcomes and makes the most of the way learners learn. The WW Academy of Teaching and Learning is redefining the way teachers are prepared.

Do you dream of being a teacher? Apply to be a part of the inaugural class of M.Ed. candidates and prospective teachers.

The WW Academy program has been specially designed to meet the needs of today’s classrooms. Learn the skills needed to lead a 21st-century classroom as you work toward an initial teaching license in middle or high school STEM fields.

Application deadlines for fall 2018 enrollment:

Fauna Forever - Research and Conservation projects in the lowland and cloud forests of the Peruvian Amazon

Fauna Forever, a Peruvian non-profit organization, is once again looking for students and recent graduates to help assist its research and conservation projects in the lowland and cloud forests of the Peruvian Amazon during the upcoming Summer and/or Fall periods. We are particularly keen on receiving applications from potential research interns interested in the following themes:

1. Movement patterns, home range area, and foraging behavior of six Neotropical primate species in different habitat types and forest management areas in Amazonian Peru; 2. Primate and rodent habituation levels in ecotourism use areas, native community forests, Brazil nut extraction concessions, and timber extraction zones in Amazonian Peru; 3. Predation and dispersal rates by terrestrial and arboreal mammals of the seeds and fruit of keystone tree species in Amazonian Peru, including palms and long-lived canopy emergent species such as Dipteryx and Brazil nut trees; 4. Ecto- and endo-parasite loads of mammal species hunted for their bushmeat; 5. Water content of mammalian prey species of Harpy eagles, mainly primates, sloths, tamandua, etc.

To apply for a research intern position with Fauna Forever (for periods of 1 to 3 months), please send us a letter of inquiry to info@faunaforever.org and we’ll send you an application pack. You can also visit our website for more information: http://www.faunaforever.org

Note: Due to the limited nature of our central funds, successful research intern applicants will need to cover their in-country costs associated with food, accommodation, local transport, training and supervision once in Peru. We strongly encourage data collected by interns to be published in peer-reviewed journals. All field assistants are also acknowledged in our own publications. A knowledge of Spanish is not required, as all our staff speak English. Energy, enthusiasm, attention to detail, and working well as part of a diverse, multi-cultural and international team, is a must!

Many thanks.
