Want to be part of a growing company that is using technology, pedagogy, and design to bring about positive social change? Founded in 2010, TechChange is a social enterprise that works with leading nonprofits and government agencies around the world to push the boundaries of what’s possible in virtual learning and online events. From delivering COVID response courses for frontline health workers, to powering the largest human rights and tech conference in the world (RightsCon), TechChange contributes to some of the most innovative and important (virtual) conversations of our era.

With the support of digital health subject matter experts, TechChange developed an online course called Digital Health: Planning National Systems based on digital health materials from and validated by the World Health Organization. The course is designed to empower ministry leadership with the technical concepts and planning tools necessary to steer and orient national digital health stakeholders towards an enterprise planning approach when planning digital health interventions in their countries. It is a highly engaging course anchored in a case study and a series of group activities that culminate in a participant presentation, which has been delivered to over 300 ministry officials all over the world.


Come help shape the evolution of the digital health landscape by working with us on this cutting-edge course on digital health -- the first of its kind -- by training the digital health leaders of today to transform the digital health landscape of tomorrow.

Your primary responsibilities will be to support the live delivery of virtual learning experiences for the Digital Health course - both blended and synchronous modalities. Live sessions range from three consecutive hours, to 1.5 hour sessions, and there are between 3-4 sessions per week, depending on the mode of delivery. The time of these live sessions will vary depending on partner preferences and participant time zones and may not be within the standard 9 am-5 pm EST business working hours.

The tasks will be ad hoc, depending on surge capacity needs and your availability. An illustrative list of what these tasks may include are as follows:

    • Share your screen and walk through the activity instructions in small breakout groups
    • Encourage participants to engage in the digital health activities by facilitating discussion in small breakout groups

Hours vary between 2-10 hours a week depending on project needs.
