- You are welcome to find an internship placement with any instructor who you believe will model a teaching approach that interests you.

- Interested in a particular context, challenge, or institution? Contact email@example.com to set up a time to chat and find you a great fit.
Considerations when choosing an internship project
Pick a project that you will want to talk about at your job interview – or that might help you figure out what kind of a job you 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 postdoc 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 primarily undergraduate institution (PUI) like Edgewood works, or teach students from diverse backgrounds at Madison College?
The Delta Program staff are happy to work with you to find a faculty partner and project that meets your goals.
