Fulfilling INFO 294 Course Requirements
In addition to meeting the requirements of the internship position, students must submit some or all of the following during the semester as determined by the faculty supervisor:
Log: This provides a daily record of activities and an analysis of what was learned, problems encountered, and questions generated. This log should be more than a collection of unrelated facts or impressions but truly a reflection of the student's learning experience. Students may be asked to post their log entries on the internship Canvas site according to a schedule set by the faculty supervisor.
- Final Report: At the conclusion of the internship, the student may be required to submit a final report indicating how the Learning Outcomes established for the internship were met. If for some reason the Learning Outcomes were only partially met, or not met at all, some discussion of what happened will be necessary. The deadline for the final report will be set by the faculty supervisor.
Site Evaluation: The Student Evaluation of Site form allows the student to provide feedback on the internship site's effectiveness in hosting an iSchool intern and to recommend the site’s continuance or discontinuance as an internship site. This must be completed at the end of the semester.
Additional Requirements: Students may also be asked to submit supplemental materials to the faculty supervisor such as written reports, bibliographies or reading lists, portfolios, or samples of professional work.
- Virtual Requirements: Virtual interns are also required to participate in weekly discussions on Canvas and maintain a weekly blog reflecting their internship experiences.
