Internship: Science Researcher Services Intern

Organization Name

Smithsonian Libraries

Job/Internship Name

Science Researcher Services Intern

Internship description. In other words, how the student will spend their internship hours?

The Natural & Physical Sciences Department of the Smithsonian Libraries (SIL) is seeking an intern to aid the department in the creation of a virtual version of its weekly in-person orientations. While in-person instruction sessions are convenient for some of the Smithsonian Institution's (SI) staff, interns, volunteers, etc., the majority of people are not able to attend these sessions because of the geographically dispersed nature of everyone's workplaces. In partnership with the Science Researcher Services Librarian, the intern for this project will translate the in-person sessions into an online experience that serves the diverse SI community.

An internship of this nature provides the intern with an opportunity to learn about SI and SIL generally, and about the science libraries with more depth. The project will model and provide experience with the steps from exploration through implementation and testing of developing online pedagogical content for a diverse group of users.

Preferred skills, competencies and knowledge of student.

The ideal candidate will have a basic understanding of distance education technology, techniques and methods, and experience with developing short instructional videos that utilize screen capture techniques.

Projected schedule (number of hours a week) or if necessary, the range of dates intern is needed.

Negotiable.

How to apply

Applications for all projects will be collected through the Smithsonian Online Academic Appointment System which can be found here: Apply Online.
