Digital Internship 2.0 Wiki

This wiki was developed to help the Digital Internship Project team to brainstorm and to organize and edit our collective ideas.
Note: I've italicized things we need to do.

Expectations of the Interns


Cooperating Teacher Reception (Sept 13, 2007 - 6:00 p.m. - @ Greco's)
- Teachers have been contacted, reservations have been made.
- We should contact cooperating teachers with a reminder in early September (Alec).

Things To Do:
- Overview of project (bring a few copies of handout).
- Answer the question: What do I have to do? What should I expect from my intern? What's in it for me?
- Informed consent.
- Schedule of workshop and invitation.
- Discussion of sub pay and reimbursement.

Workshop #1

Workshop #2

Workshop #3

To Do/By Who

- Create Digital Internship Brainstorm Wiki (Alec) - DONE!
- Invite Stu Harris (YES), Christel Gee, Dean Shareski (NO) to speak in Workshop #1 (Alec) - DONE!
- Have the interns signed informed consent forms yet for this project? If not, does someone have the copy of the form from last year that we can update?
- This may be a little late for this comment. I was told that if research is done and the findings will remain in the university, ethics approval is not required; however, if we plan to publish something or present at a conference, we would need ethics approval. Do we need to apply/renew ethics approval for our research this fall?

- Package with forms to give to the teachers at Greko's (expectations of interns, expense forms, parking information, sub-information)
