Inclusive Instructional Design Intern
U-M Center for Research on Learning and Teaching
Ann Arbor, MI (Remote)
Description of the Intern’s Role and Responsibilities
- Design an asynchronous Canvas mini-course focused on CRLT’s equity-focused teaching framework.
- Adapt equity-focused teaching mini-course for use in multiple CRLT asynchronous workshops.
- Conduct research on best practices in equity-focused teaching and learning for use in the development of CRLT resource guides and reference materials.
- Update and design branded materials including presentation slides and worksheets.
The student should expect strong collaboration with members of the DEI Area on visioning, brainstorming, and shaping the project(s). But, plan to work independently on the development and execution of the project(s).
The student should have a knowledge of critical disciplinary approaches and familiarity with critical perspectives on teaching and learning (e.g., feminist/womanist pedagogy, critical race theory, etc.); familiarity with HTML design for Canvas and digital accessibility principles; experience in graphic design.
The intern will gain insight on equity-focused teaching strategies and ways to develop supportive mechanisms for individual and collective pedagogical development. Additionally, they will deepen their research capacity and gain a broader appreciation for the work of teaching and learning centers.
As of now, DEI Area meetings take place on Wednesday afternoons, while this might change in the fall 2022, the student should plan to be available during some of those meeting times (Eastern time).
