Library Teaching Internship: Home

Learn about the library teaching internship, in partnership with SOIS

Internship Mission

The teaching internship fulfills the teaching demand of the Rebecca Crown Library while it offers an opportunity for Dominican University SOIS students in the MLIS program to prepare for careers in library instruction by participating in the development of lesson plans, teaching programmatic curriculum, reflecting on their own teaching, and acting as future-colleagues within the instruction department. Teaching interns are mentored by instruction librarians as they develop their teaching philosophy and pedagogical practice. In the Spring Semester, interns have full responsibility for two sections of LIB 102 including communication with teaching faculty, instruction, grading, and communication with students. Interns will achieve independence in teaching and professional practice by the end of the academic year which culminates in a final presentation and self-evaluation. Using ongoing self-reflection and feedback on their work, interns will create their own teaching philosophy.
