The MEITE internship is designed to further prepare you with the skills, experiences, and dispositions needed to thrive in the field of educational innovation. It is an impactful component of the MEITE program that our students highly value.
Every semester we contact multiple educational organizations in the Research Triangle to identify where innovative projects and opportunities are happening. Students then collaborate with the MEITE Program Director to identify an internship placement that best aligns to their professional goals. Examples of organizations where MEITE students can intern include:
Business accelerators and incubators,
Digital marketing firms,
Offices of innovation,
Corporate training departments,
Curriculum development departments,
K-12 public and charter schools,
Community organizations, and
Research and development teams.
Workplace and virtual internships can be considered. You are encouraged to share additional ideas for a potential internship placement with the Program Director.
The internship placement typically lasts two semesters. You will spend eight hours per week during the semester at your internship site. You will also meet once a week with your cohort mates, who are also completing their internships, to debrief about your experiences as a community.
