Articles on internships:
One of ISEE’s other major programs is the Akamai Internship, which helps build Hawai‘i’s scientific and technical workforce. Because of the close interplay between the PDP and Akamai, ISEE and its participants have worked a great deal on the design of internship programs and internship projects. This section features three articles relating to internships.
- Flowing from the previous section on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, the first article led by Jerome Shaw discusses intentional strategies in the Akamai Internship for building a sense of inclusion and community among the interns and program staff.
- The entry led by Alexandra Holloway describes the design of internships at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as analogous to the design of “PDP-style” active learning experiences.
- The second article led by Jerome Shaw presents frameworks that support interns’ deeper understandings of their own projects, and how these frameworks interact with PDP activities the interns experience.
