Additional Details

Through distance learning technologies like video and web conferencing the DLN connects students and teachers with NASA experts and education specialists. Interns with the DLN would be trained to present several of our modules to present on camera to students and educators all over the country. Additionally, they would assist our module developer with ideas to create new distance learning modules for our permanent catalog, researching NASA resources to supplement the presentations. Students studying to be in the teaching field would benefit greatly learning first hand about distance education and its effective use in the classroom.

 

The intern would be working with professional educators formerly from the classroom in the STEM academic areas.  Additionally, the intern would have access to and experience with our other award winning educators from across the country at all 10 NASA centers.  We look forward to the opportunity to working with a William and Mary student to expose them to the field of distance learning education and instructional technology.

 

We would highly encourage interested applicants to speak with our prior W&M intern - Michelle Bousquet (mmbousquet@email.wm.edu) - to learn about the exciting opportunity DLN offers.
