DLINQ Internships: Professional Learning Opportunities for Middlebury Students
About the Internship Program
DLINQ’s student internship program is designed to provide opportunities for Middlebury students to work on meaningful and impactful digital projects. DLINQ Interns work with DLINQ staff mentors and are offered continuous learning opportunities. The program is aligned with Middlebury’s strategic direction focused on developing students’ digital fluency and critical engagement with the digital.
DLINQ Interns divide their time into three areas of work:
Inquiries – Participating in individual and group inquiries on topics of digital fluency, and supporting or co-leading one-on-one or small group learning sessions on topics relevant to DLINQ’s areas of focus.
Digital Fluency Teaching Assistance – Facilitating peer-to-peer consultations with other students, faculty, and staff, and partnering with faculty and staff to develop digital fluency activities for courses.
DLINQ project work – Contributing to the development, progress, and success of DLINQ sponsored as well as community partner projects and initiatives.
