TABLE FOR TWO USA(*), 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is looking for a part-time (contract position) e-Learning Course Developer/ Instructional Designer to develop an online food education program to teach Japanese food and foodways to high school students in the U.S.

The developer will collaborate closely with a team of subject matter experts in Japanese food education. This includes writing and developing, with some editorial, multimedia, and design work as needed. We have already developed contents for the hands-on program and some of the contents can be used for the online program.

About Wa-Shouiku –Learn. Cook. Eat Japanese!-

The Wa-Shokuiku Project ( is a new initiative from TABLE FOR TWO USA. Wa-Shokuiku combines the Japanese words “Washoku” which refers to Japanese food and, “Shokuiku”, food education. It is a 7-part series of classes on Japanese food and food culture for American school students.  We developed a hands-on program targeting elementary to middle school aged students successfully and now plan to develop its online version targeting high school students.

Our goal for the Wa-Shokuiku program is that students will be equipped with practical knowledge and skills regarding healthy eating, Japanese foodways, and best practices.  The objectives are (1) to expand students’ palates by teaching how to prepare tasty and healthy dishes using washoku preparation techniques, (2) Include discussion about nutrition, manners, respect toward food and simple relevant Japanese words, and (3) introduce food related concerns, such as obesity and waste while discussing do-able daily actions inspired by shokuiku.

Please view these the video of the hands-on programs to give you an idea of what the program covers.


  • Designing and creating engaging, effective e-Learning courses based on the existing hands-on program framework and contents. This includes creating text, videos, images, and interactive exercises. We tentatively use Ruzuku as e-learning course platform but can be flexible on what platform to be used.
  • Produce instructional design documents such as storyboards, scripts, media lists and assessment tools in accordance with defined style guides such as Brand and existing hands-on class lesson plans.
  • Maintain relevant project documentation
  • Documents progress/status of assigned tasks for review by others
  • Reports regularly to Project Director and informs other team members on assignments and progress


  • BA (required)
  • Excellent skills and passionate about creating interactive learning
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Solid understanding of learning theories and pedagogy
  • Strong problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • Ability to work independently
  • Experience creating e-learning programs for students preferred
