We create active educational experiences that expand minds, foster cultural intelligence and open up exciting future opportunities. We are a values-driven community, invested in making a difference.

FIE London is currently seeking to contract a qualified, enthusiastic, and confident sessional instructor to teach the undergraduate urban sustainability social science course Sustainable Cities: London in the Era of Climate Change in the 2023 Summer and Fall semesters. 

The ideal instructor will have a relevant postgraduate degree, doctorate preferred, in a directly related field and have experience of teaching at the undergraduate level. Experience teaching American undergraduates at a range of levels is preferred as FIE classes are delivered to undergraduates from a variety of institutions, predominantly American universities. Faculty are responsible for all aspects of course preparation, teaching, and assessment. 

FIE’s courses are designed so that students can actively participate in their host country’s culture. All courses are supported by co-curricular activities (field trips, site visits, guest speakers, interactive experiences) that foster community connection and understanding. By discovering and experiencing knowledge beyond the classroom students shape their own perspective of the world. Anyone who teaches for us must be willing and eager to use the location of London in creative ways, incorporating experiential components as part of their teaching delivery strategy. 

The consequences of man-made changes to the climate that are beginning to be experienced now are going to continue having a significant impact on urban areas and populations therein. Understanding, predicting, and mitigating the social effects of climate change is a growing concern for policy-makers, practitioners, and scholars worldwide, engulfing and remaking societal conceptions of sustainability. Who is in charge of envisioning a sustainable future, and what information are they using to make their decisions? Sustainable for who? And who is being excluded from this vision?   

This course investigates the global and local changes associated with climate change from the perspective of urban sociology. It examines the ways we can make sense of climate change’s impact on human societies. This course will consider the history and future of urban settlement, with a particular focus on how cities are being remade in the era of climate change. A course outline is available to view here.
