DLINQ Interns

DLINQ Interns are Middlebury students who are employed by DLINQ. They divide their time into three areas of work:

  • Lab support for Wilson Media Lab (Middlebury) and Digital Learning Commons (Monterey)
  • In-person and online consultations with other students, faculty, and staff
  • DLINQ project work

THE MISSION

DLINQ’s student engagement program is designed to provide opportunities for Middlebury students to work on meaningful and impactful digital projects. DLINQ Interns work with mentorship from DLINQ staff and are offered continuous learning opportunities. As such, the program is aligned with Middlebury’s strategic direction focused on developing students' digital fluency and critical engagement with the digital.

Interns offer support for the Middlebury community for a variety of software and digital tools, including: the Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, WordPress and website development, iMovie, Keynote, Powerpoint, and Prezi, as well as many others. In addition to offering technical support to faculty, staff, and students, Interns assist with DLINQ projects from departments across Middlebury.

LINQ UP WITH AN INTERN

See us in the Lab

The Wilson Media Lab (Middlebury, VT) and the DLC Learning Lab (Monterey, CA) are staffed by Interns during specified hours. Interns are available to help on topics such as: media creation software, learning tools, and other digital resources available inside and outside of the lab. Drop-ins are welcome.

Consultations

Interns provide consultations to other students, and occasionally to faculty, for topics on which they have expertise (e.g., media production, using software). When possible, we encourage scheduling a consultation with a DLINQ Intern to ensure that they are prepared to provide support.

Project Work

Interns are an integral part of DLINQ projects, including Studio projects, in coordination with DLINQ staff. In some cases, project work is part of a DLA-funded project, in coordination with DLA staff.
