Description

Our program will highlight the UW Libraries High-School Internship, which marked the first time that high-school students took part in a paid internship at the UW Libraries. Over the course of the twenty-hour internship, the students, who are aspiring to be first-in-family college students, created two digital stories using WeVideo and got hands-on experience using online primary source collections and geospatial databases at the UW Libraries. In our program, we will detail why we were inspired to create our institution’s first high-school internship, how we assembled the internship, and what we accomplished with the internship.

Learning Outcomes

The audience for this lightning talk will be introduced to the strategies, practices, and tools we employed to create and implement this internship and feel empowered to start a high-school internship at their own institution. They will also hear about the mistakes that we learned from and the strategies we plan to implement next time to improve upon the internship.
