Learning outcomes

Learning Outcomes

“After successfully applying to an internship site, the student must create a set of Learning Outcomes, which are statements that describe what the students will have learned and are able to do by the end of the semester as the result of engaging in the internship. These statements should focus on the acquisition of observable and measurable knowledge, skills and abilities, and reflect the desired end of the learning experience, not simply the means or the process (e.g., a list of activities performed for the internship).” -- http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/current-students/courses/internships/libr-294-student-handbook/libr-294-learning-outcomes


Learning outcomes con t

Learning Outcomes, con’t

A learning outcome is not:

  • A list of tasks you will accomplish

    My example:

    Survey, arrange and create an inventory for OH 2010-11 collection (new UCSF oral histories, 6.75 linear feet).


Learning outcomes cont t

Learning Outcomes, cont’t

A learning outcome is:

    My Example:

    At the end of my internship I will be able to: Evaluate, survey, arrange and create an inventory for archival collections.


Being an intern

Being an Intern

  • It’s about the experience; so remember to enjoy every minute of it. Here are some tips for you to think about and to use when you become an intern.


Ask q uestions

AskQuestions

  • You have a internship supervisor for a reason, they are supposed to help you understand the ropes.

  • Also, make sure to stay in contact with the internship site coordinator. If you feel as if are overwhelmed with the work and school, they can help you.


Be proactive

Be Proactive

  • If you are doing an online internship, you are basically being your own motivator.

    • You have to be on the ball everyday in turning in work assignments and maintain contact.

    • Know that you are important to them and complete projects on time.

      • If you are having trouble, TELL THEM. They are there to teach you how to resolve it.


Stay in contact

Stay in Contact

  • Supervisor

  • Professor

  • Classmates

  • Fellow Interns

  • These wonderful people are great resources to contact for references, questions, and support throughout the internship and the future!


Take notes

Take Notes!

  • Keep track of the work by:

    • Blogging

    • Journal

    • Projects completed

      • Screenshots of webpages completed

      • Helps for support when doing the e-portfolio


Have the right attitude

Have the right attitude

  • Breathe…They know that you are a busy college student and they work with you on your schedule. So try and not stress out.

  • Try and be enthusiastic.

    • If you are bored with a project, ask them about other projects that they may need help with.

      • If another project isn’t available, look at different ways to add your own touch. This is good prep for the future.
