The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) Emerging Instructional Technology (EIT) unit is dedicated to supporting the administration and faculty in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. We support a lab facility with a variety of hardware and software as well as work directly with faculty in the selection and implementation of appropriate technology for teaching and learning.
This position is non-compensated and has three areas in which an intern could potentially focus. During any given semester, internship responsibilities could include all or some of the below, based on the skills and capabilities of the successful candidate:
The CHSS currently uses an application developed in-house (by past co-op students) that is used to evaluate hybrid and online courses. Maintenance, updating, and revision of this program is potentially part of the job. We also support an application that receives input on announcements and events in the CHSS and channels them to an administrator for approval. There are several other similar projects in the planning phase.
The E&IT Unit is responsible for maintaining, updating, and supporting two of its own web sites, one internal and one external, and also supports the web presence for the Emerging Learning Design conference and the Journal of Emerging Learning Design.
3D Virtual Environments
The CHSS has been an industry leader in the use of virtual environments for teaching and learning. This position will work on projects designed by the EIT Director and faculty members. This work will consist of building and scripting for the virtual worlds. Other areas around the University that make use of virtual worlds are also provided with support on an availability basis.
