Résumé de l'emploi
Appuyés par la Banque TD, ces stages rémunérés compétitifs offrent des occasions d'étude et de formation, de même que de l'expérience de travail dans le domaine suivant :

Éducation et programmes publics dans les musées d’art

Le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada élabore des programmes éducatifs en lien avec des expositions temporaires et la collection nationale. Le stagiaire aura l’occasion de travailler dans le développement de contenu et dans la mise en œuvre et l’évaluation de produits. Le stagiaire acquerra donc une expérience de travail précieuse dans le domaine de l’éducation muséale.
Sous la supervision d’un éducateur, le stagiaire effectuera des recherches sur les œuvres de la collection nationale et dressera une liste de contenus potentiels qui pourraient être exploités dans un guide multimédia dont le lancement est prévu en 2020. Le stagiaire participera également à l’évaluation de l'application audio-guide Gauguin. Portraits, qui sera disponible pendant l’exposition spéciale de l’été 2019.
Le programme de stages TD a été mis sur pied dans le but d'offrir des occasions de perfectionnement professionnel de niveau d'admission aux étudiants qui envisagent une carrière dans le milieu muséal, bibliothéconomique ou archivistique.

Les stages se déroulent habituellement sur douze semaines, mais cette période peut varier selon les exigences du candidat et du programme du Musée.

Le stage doit avoir lieu entre le 3 juin et le 13 septembre 2019.

La rémunération est évaluée à 7500 $ pour les douze semaines. Elle sera répartie proportionnellement en cas de période de stage plus courte ou plus longue. Les stagiaires peuvent être admissibles à une indemnité discrétionnaire de déménagement de 750 $.

Deux évaluations de rendement et de progrès seront réalisées au cours de la période de stage. La première consistera en un échange informel à la quatrième semaine de stage afin d'assurer l'atteinte des objectifs d'apprentissage et du projet, et d'évaluer la satisfaction des deux parties. La seconde évaluation sera plus formelle et aura lieu à la fin du stage. Elle consistera en une évaluation écrite des travaux réalisés et du rendement du stagiaire rédigée par le superviseur de stage. Le stagiaire devra rédiger un bref rapport dans lequel il évaluera à quel point le stage était une réussite pour le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada et TD.

Institutional Description:
Canada's Sports Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to conferring Canada's highest sporting honour on athletes and organizers that make us proud to be Canadian. Canada's Sports Hall of Fame Museum at WinSport's Canada Olympic Park is the home to Canada's Highest Sporting Honour, celebrating a community of Hall of Famers, 665 to date, that inspire Canadians in sport and life. New Hall of Famers are inducted annually and their stories are shared through curated exhibits, immersive experiences and digital storytelling.

Job Description:
The Manager of Education and Programming seeks to hire an Education Outreach Ambassador intern to assist with education outreach initiatives from July – end of November.

The intern will be assigned two major projects: (1) assist with the planning, coordination, scheduling, managing and possible delivery of an exciting new education outreach initiative called Beyond the Win: Hall of Famers on Tour; and, (2) help expand the Virtual Visits outreach initiative by researching and writing content for the “Sports and the Canadian Champions” program, which focuses on Canada’s top Olympic and Paralympic athletes and builders, as well as assist in the development of a new virtual program focused on our Indigenous Hall of Famers. They may also assist with learning, delivering and booking Virtual Visits, as needed.

The intern may assist in the delivery of outreach programs, both virtually and in-school, throughout the duration of their contract once they have a good understanding of the programs and based on programs booked. The intern will also handle original artefacts as part of program delivery and in accordance with approved museum standards. Training and shadowing opportunities will be provided.

The intern will complete the following projects and tasks:

Beyond the Win: Hall of Famers on Tour
• Assist with planning, coordinating, scheduling and managing in-school outreach programs that will be delivered to full school assemblies;
• Liaising with education stakeholders and Hall of Famers, as required; and,
• Potentially assisting with the delivery of these in-school presentations, as needed.

Virtual Visits
• Expand the Virtual Visits outreach initiative by researching and writing content for the “Sports and the Canadian Champions” program;
• Assist in the development of a new virtual program focused on our Indigenous Hall of Famers;
• Producing engaging and interactive education outreach materials based on intern research and the Alberta curriculum; and,
• Learn, deliver and book Virtual Visits, as needed.

Additional Tasks
• Learn current interpretive and museum teaching techniques;
• Handle original artefacts in accordance with approved museum standards;
• Access the collections database and research centre to utilize in-house research materials to use in program research and development; and,
• Assist with any education-related task, as needed, including education materials and projects related to CSHoF special events;
• Build professional network through liaising with museum education stakeholders;
• Attend regular meetings with the education team to ensure that the content being researched and developed meets the guidelines for content development;
• Assist Visitor Services, such as covering lunches, as required; and,
• Other duties, as assigned.

Qualifications:
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of a BA, preferably a masters, with experience in:

History or Museum Studies – As a recognized heritage facility, we provide direct experience in the field of history and museum education as we focus on sharing stories and artefacts from the past. Our education department nurtures an informal learning environment that caters to the diverse learning styles of visitors using a participatory, multisensory approach. As such, an intern with a museum studies background or teaching experience in a museum environment would be a definite asset. The intern will also have the opportunity to learn about collections and archives best practices, specifically handling artefacts.

Teaching/Education – This job provides interns with hands-on experience working with children. It also provides exposure to curriculum-based programming, relevant school boards, and processes relevant to all education programming. The candidate, however, should be familiar with, or open to, teaching in an informal learning environment as the approach differs from a formal classroom.

The intern must possess intermediate to advanced computer competencies with Microsoft Office, especially Excel, Word and Publisher.

Other Skills Required:
• Excellent administrative skills, including photocopying, high level of detail, and data entry with a high level of accuracy
• Ability to follow up on tasks, as necessary

• Willingness and drive to get any job or task done
• Responsible, accountable, adaptable
• Excellent problem solving skills
• The intern will be required to provide or obtain a valid vulnerable sector police check.
