Faculty and Staff Partners
A core element of the Delta Internship Program is the relationship that is built between the intern and his or her partner, which serves to advance the student's training as a future faculty member.
Sometimes students select their partners based on past relationships, connections, and research interests. But oftentimes, current faculty and instructional staff members approach the Delta Program looking for interns to work with them to further define a problem in teaching and learning, implement a solution, and assess its effectiveness for improving learning.
Interns provide a valuable resource to partners. In addition to being experts in their fields of study, interns are enthusiastic colleagues with new ideas about teaching and learning. Working with an intern is an opportunity to build connections and ultimately make a difference in the professional development of a future member of the faculty.
As a partner, you will be asked to:
- Actively engage in defining the teaching-as-research problem and creating solutions through ideas, feedback, etc.
- Provide support, guidance, and constructive criticism as the project is being implemented
- Maintain regular meetings to discuss progress
