Deputy Examiner in Norwegian Language and Literature
Norwegian Language and Literature Deputy Examiner Responsible needed for the International Baccalaureate®
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is currently seeking an experienced individual to take on the role of Deputy Examiner Responsible for its Norwegian Language and Literature course.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering challenging programmes for a worldwide community of schools. It is now represented in over 150 countries and in over 4,900 schools. The IB provides an international pre-university curriculum and an international university entry qualification, which gives access to higher education on a worldwide basis. You may be interested to visit the public website at http://www.ibo.org for more details.
One of the characteristics of the IB's Diploma Programme is that students are required to study, as one of six subjects that constitute the diploma, one of three ‘Language A’ courses, each designed to develop high social, aesthetic and cultural literacy, as well as communication skills. The IB’s Language A: language and literature course aims to develop skills of textual analysis and the understanding that texts, both literary and non-literary, can relate to culturally determined reading practices, and to encourage students to question the meaning generated by language and texts. An understanding of the ways in which formal elements are used to create meaning in a text is combined with an exploration of how that meaning is affected by reading practices that are culturally defined and by the circumstances of production and reception.
Further information about the course is available at: https://www.ibo.org/programmes/diploma-programme/curriculum/language-and-literature/language-a-language-and-literature-slhl/
The duties of Deputy Examiner Responsible include the setting and marking of examinations and may involve occasional (paid) travel to the IB Global Centre, Cardiff, UK.
