Virtual Learning Instructor at Artisan’s Asylum


Artisan's Asylum is a 40,000 sq foot makerspace whose mission is to engage others in the practice of fabrication. We lead the fabrication space in Boston in the breadth and depth of our public class offerings, always striving to create quality learning experiences from skilled instructors. What drives our class programming is our excitement for experimentation and curiosity-driven learning. With the traditional model for teaching and learning in kinesthetic practices forever changed by the COVID-19 era, we are seeking entrepreneurial individuals who will use their creative skills to instruct others virtually in ways that stretch the limits of the imagination and inspire students to try new techniques and projects.

We are growing our online instruction team and are looking to offer courses or kit-based projects that spark creativity, discovery, and excitement in the arts and science. We are seeking motivated teachers who are interested in designing and offering fun, quirky and inspiring classes that can be taught virtually through our platform or offered on an as-need basis. Teachers have the ability to submit their own curriculum ideas and will work with our team to refine offerings for our members and community.

Class Types:

  • In-depth Skills Building or Project-Based Course: Synchronous Instruction Online extending 2 - 6 weeks

  • Topical Course: Synchronous Instruction in a 2-3hr Workshop

  • Topical Course: Asynchronous Instruction in a 2-3hr Workshop

  • Kit-Based Project: Assemble or near-built projects that include at-home instruction

Candidates should be entrepreneurial and well experienced in their content area, potentially with some previous teaching experience. Willing to use online platforms like Zoom, Google Classroom, Google Drive, to engage students in learning activities. You will excel if you’re able to pivot naturally to changing conditions, ready to go above and beyond the norm to help start a new program, assist in marketing your classes to your social groups.
