As you explore the international education field, here are a few listservs that may be helpful to you. When you find other helpful listservs, please share them with firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add them to this page.
Idealist: www.idealist.org: plenty of opportunities presented here, especially volunteer opportunities
Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies: www.ineesite.org: job postings along with resources for those in the education development field (particularly education in emergencies). It's an inter-agency, meaning that it is comprised of government, NGOs, academic institutions and individuals (great for networking!).
www.interaction.org: Another great website for those interested in relief and development. Great for networking, up to date information on best practices, and job opportunities
www.sphereproject.org: For those on the development track, being familiar with Sphere Standards is useful (these are specific to disaster response, but organizations have adopted them as the minimum standards even when not addressing a disaster).
