Faculty interested in planning and building a course Web site should apply now for participation in the summer TELR Internship in Learning and Technology. Proposals will be accepted until June 8.

The program matches faculty seeking instructional design/technical skills with undergraduate students who are learning project design for Web technology. Students are supported in their learning by teams of courseware design professionals and advanced graduate teaching associates who instruct and consult with the undergraduates throughout the quarter. Faculty whose course development projects are chosen for the internship are provided with the same expert guidance.

A faculty orientation session and an introductory design workshop led by instructional design professionals kick off the Summer internship projects. These sessions familiarize faculty with the pedagogy of online learning environments and provide direction for course design and development.

Also, mark your calendars for the TELR Internship Showcase on June 1 in 346 Hopkins Hall. In ongoing electronic poster sessions, students and faculty present the results of their spring quarter collaborations. Walk through the showcase, meet the interns and their instructors, and find out what the internship program can do for you. The winter showcase attracted 80 attendees who learned about 19 faculty projects developed by 30 TELR interns.
