The MEITE internship provides you with an authentic opportunity to work with professionals in an area of interest within the field of educational technology.
The MEITE internship is designed to further prepare you with the skills, experiences, and dispositions needed to thrive in the field of educational technology. 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 while concurrently taking EDUC 767 in the fall semester and EDUC 789 in the spring semester. The internship and concurrent coursework are designed for you to reflect on what you are seeing and doing in the field and then apply it to the learning taking place in the classroom.
