Digital media internships: LIS Education 2.0



The one year Digital Media Intern Project was funded by a grant from UBC's Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund to support four SLAIS Interns (students in the MLIS program). Theywere charged with developing and delivering educational modules related to Web 2.0 for UBC students. A total of 16 workshops were offered, as well as training through a “This is Your Life 2.0” blog on which a series of mini-modules was posted. The project demonstrates that the dynamic and evolving nature of the Learning Centre is a perfect laboratory for educating information professionals for their changing roles in a new information environment, while the Learning Centre benefits from dynamic programs delivered by students for students.
