Pre-Internship Workshop I: Finding a Project
Updated by Janaina on March 14, 11:45 am


Are you interested in getting real-world experience exploring a teaching challenge or method with a small-scale, mentored project? 


Each semester, the Delta Internship Program supports a new cohort of interns who partner with faculty and staff to improve student learning and learning environments through innovative, small-scale projects. If you are interested in this opportunity but do not have a specific teaching challenge or project in mind, consider attending the following workshop:


Pre-Internship Workshop I: Finding a Project

Thursday, April 6, 2017

9:30-11:00 m

445 Henry Mall, Room 117 (WISCIENCE)

Register online:


Attendees will discuss the internship process and timeline, as well as potential internship projects and partners. This session is for students who do not yet have a specific project or partner in mind.

One course in teaching and learning is a prerequisite for completing an internship. The course can be taken over the summer, locally or online, and we find that those that take a course with their project in mind have rewarding internship experiences. Learn more about the Delta Internship Program HERE.

Mentoring Statement Workshop
Updated by Janaina on March 14, 11:45 am


Thursday, April 6, 2017

11:30 am-1:00 pm

445 Henry Mall, Room 117 (WISCIENCE)

Register online:


This workshop is designed to help participants develop their mentoring statement. A mentoring statement or philosophy offers the opportunity for a mentor to reflect on their experiences in and approaches to mentoring. This document is a common component of faculty job application materials, and yet can prove challenging to write. Through hands-on exercises and constructive peer feedback, participants will leave with material for a draft of their mentoring statement. You do not need to have a prior draft of your statement in order to participate in the workshop.

MADISON, WIS. – Forty-six research universities that produce one-third of U.S. doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) now are members of the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL), established within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Education. The mission of CIRTL is to improve the teaching skills and increase the diversity of future STEM university faculty members.
