Job Description

The mission of the Office of Digital Learning & Inquiry (DLINQ) is to explore and create digital practices and spaces that advance the transformative potential of education in students' lives, and to advance digital fluency and critical engagement with the digital at Middlebury.

Student employees play a key role in the Office of Digital Learning & Inquiry's (DLINQ) student engagement program which centers student learning that, as an extension of the mission and reach of our office, applies equally to and serves to unify and connect students across Middlebury programs. As such, DLINQ Interns are actively engaged with DLINQ staff, project partners, and one another as peer mentors in ways that engage their curiosity, advance and prioritize their learning, and foster their sense of cross-institutional community.

Under supervision of an assigned DLINQ staff member, DLINQ Interns balance their time between:
Lab management/consultations: This involves co-managing the resources and physical spaces in the Wilson Media Lab and providing peer-to-peer consultations to other students, and occasionally to staff and faculty, on topics and tools on which they have demonstrated interest and expertise (e.g., multimedia production, web tools, emerging technologies, effective use of software). DLINQ Interns, when working in the Wilson Media Lab, will provide thoughtful and responsive support to the Middlebury community by taking in-person and virtual appointments, helping drop-in visitors, facilitating workshops (when requested by their supervisor), and managing our collaborative spaces and technologies.

DLINQ Projects: DLINQ Interns will contribute to the development of specific DLINQ projects and initiatives, and provide expertise and support to help DLINQ projects (and related faculty, staff, and students) to succeed. Projects are assigned by DLINQ supervisors based on Interns' expertise, interest, or professional/academic development goals.

The DLINQ Intern position is a technically oriented position that requires a creative, curious, and critical disposition. The position requires a troubleshooting aptitude and willingness to investigate problems and work through viable solutions autonomously, and the ability to partner with faculty, staff, and other students to move projects forward and to learn new things.

We expect strong verbal and written communication skills, and proven strength in collaboration and working in team-based environments. Candidates must be self-motivated, interested in continuing on their own learning curve, and work well with and without supervision. An ability to take initiative, be a creative problem solver, and possess a high level of adaptability is required. Regular attendance at mandatory weekly meetings is expected as is contribution to topics discussed at the meeting Interns will often be called upon to complete professional presentations of services and tools in the Wilson Media Lab.
