Taken (or taking) your Delta or CIRTL course and ready to choose an internship project?
You can bring your own project ideas, or you consider our open opportunities below.
How to find an internship project
- Consider our available opportunities (below). Contact the faculty partner listed to shape a project that fits both of your goals and interests.
- You are welcome to find an internship placement with any instructor who you believe will model a teaching approach that interests you. Internships can be in any teaching environment that meets your professional goals and interests (a course you are TA’ing, or a lecture, lab, discussion, outreach, lab, TA trainings, etc).
- Interested in a particular context, challenge, or institution? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to chat and find you a great fit.
Suggestion Pick a project that you will want to talk about at your job interview- or that might help you know what kind of a job you might want: a project that meets your long-term career goals. Don’t pick a project just because you know the instructor, or have TA’d the course. Think big picture: time in graduate school and post-doc roles is so limited. What do you want to get experience and expertise with? A particular teaching approach such as active learning in large lectures, or small courses with diverse learners? Get to know how a PUI like Edgewood works, or teach students from diverse backgrounds at Madison College? We are happy to work with you to find a faculty partner and project that meets your goals.
Please see the required intern and faculty partner agreement form here to guide your conversation about expectations and roles.
Keep in mind that typical intern projects involve one day up to one week of instruction (with flexibility for those who are interested in broader questions- contact email@example.com with questions). You can find more information in the overview and FAQ here.
