Welcome to Project All For All's Open School!
We are excited to announce that we are creating a platform for everyone to learn about civics, the Sustainable Development Goals, social justice, and other relevant topics for free! All courses and classes will be pre-recorded, available on-demand, and free of charge, and they will be taught by passionate teachers of all ages.
Thank you for your interest in the Open School. The application period to teach the first set of courses has now closed. Shortlisted applicants have been contacted to schedule interviews. Please sign up to our monthly newsletter to get updates on when the next application period will open.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Open School?
The Open School is a new initiative by Project All For All which aims to make civic education more accessible. A platform will be built within our website to host courses and individual classes, all of which will be available on-demand for free.
What is the teacher recruitment for?
We are currently recruiting volunteers to teach courses and classes which will form part of the Open School. The program is simple: anyone intersted in a particular topic(s) can propose a course or class. Once the application is approved, teachers will record their classes. These will be hosted on the Open School platform, along with the teacher's name and bio.
What are the requirements to be a teacher?
Fluency in English and a passion for the topic you'd like to teach! There are no eligibility requirements, and prior experience in the field is not required. Age is not a barrier at all - in fact, we encourage young people in particular to apply to teach.
What is the difference between a course and a class?
A course is a collection of multiple classes, which each usually build off each other. This would suit larger topics, which have numerous facets, better. A class is essentially a course with just one class; this works better for more specific/ narrow topics.
What should each class be like?
The structure of the classes you teach is completely up to you. As long as it is factual and informational, any format works! Please note that a slide deck should be presented while you teach, in order to help guide learners.
What topics can I teach?
The overarching topic areas are civics (including politics, economics, civic issues, and international relations), social justice, activism, the Sustainable Development Goals (and all of the topics highlighted within the goals), and other similar fields. Class topics could range from An Overview of US-China Relations in the 2010s to Water Pollution 101 to Understanding the Structure of the United Nations.
How long should each class be?
We recommend that each class should be between 30-45 minutes, or 60 at the most. However, if your planned class would work better with shorter or longer durations, that works fine too. Your classes also do not all need to be of the same length (if you're teaching a course).
Can I teach multiple courses?
Absolutely! We just ask that you finish recording your first course (or class) before applying to teach another.
What is the selection process to be a teacher?
After submitting an application to teach a course, we will review your proposal to see if it will benefit learners. If your application is shortlisted, we will contact you to either set up an interview or to accept your application immediately.
