Bryn Mawr College LITS Digital Technology
2019 Summer Internships
This is a BMC internship opportunity that is a partnership with LITS & LILAC. The selected students will be interns with the Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) Department at Bryn Mawr College. The selected students will also participate in the LILAC Summer Funding Program.
A complete application includes:
- Submitting a one-page resume and cover letter through this Handshake listing
- Completing the LILAC Summer Internship Partners Form
Continuing Bryn Mawr students are invited to apply for several on-campus summer LITS Digital Technology Internships. These interns work with Bryn Mawr’s Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) staff on various digital technology related projects for faculty and staff clients. These internships are an opportunity to develop your digital competencies – that is, the skills and capacities needed to be leaders and innovators in digital fields – while assisting Bryn Mawr faculty and staff in developing and supporting college programs. All interns gain extensive experience with design thinking, project management and assessment, researching and learning new technologies, troubleshooting, and working with clients. Depending on available projects and their own interests, interns may gain experience in areas such as coding or web design, data management and analysis, audiovisual production, digital scholarship, and academic assignment or course development. (Learn more about projects interns worked on last year.)
LITS Digital technology internships are a great opportunity for students considering careers in education, library and information science, or digital technologies. We often hire digital technology interns to work through the academic year.
Interns report to Jennifer Spohrer, director of Educational Technology Services (a division of LITS), and are expected to work full-time on Bryn Mawr College campus for 10 weeks. They are paid biweekly at the college’s regular summer rate ($10/hour in summer 2018). You are responsible for finding and paying for your own housing. Some on-campus housing is available: please see Conferences and Events’ website for information about summer on-campus housing options.
Your cover letter should explain why you are interested in this internship and summarize evidence of your ability to learn new technologies and technology skills and work effectively with others to complete projects. Although no other prior experience is required, we’d love to hear about any experiences or interests you have in areas related to: teaching, curricular design, coaching or mentoring (e.g., TLI consulting, volunteer teaching); web design or production; graphic design and image editing (e.g, Photoshop, etc.); audiovisual production; podcasting, blogging, or social media marketing; data cleaning, management and analysis; augmented or virtual reality; project management or design thinking.
