Washington Internship Institute is accepting Applications

The Washington Internship Institute’s semester-long academic internship program is carefully designed to provide college sophomores, juniors, seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students from the U.S. and abroad with practical, hands-on experience and academically rigorous courses emphasizing personal and professional development.

In addition to enhancing your skills and building your resume, you may also be eligible to receive academic credit from your school; most students earn a full semester’s worth of credit. The learning doesn’t stop when you step out of your office or classroom. You’ll continue learning at home by living with fellow students—creating a community of scholars—and also every time you set foot outside of your apartment, as DC becomes your campus.

Our internship program is distinguished by several features:

Our comprehensive approach. WII’s programs combine

  • practical, real and challenging internship experiences;
  • stimulating and rigorous academic coursework;
  • co-curricular activities including networking opportunities, community service projects, and events featuring distinguished guest speakers;
  • convenient housing;
  • and, guidance and support from WII’s staff.

Our personal attention to your interests and desired career path. After acceptance into our academic internship program, your WII internship adviser will guide you through the process of securing an internship placement by helping you gather application materials and by contacting possible placements on your behalf. Since 1990, we have worked with thousands of offices around town.

Our commitment to academic quality. WII requires all academic internship participants to take two courses, an internship seminar and a core course. Our faculty includes top policy professionals and leading academics who guide you in examining policy issues and utilize their extensive academic and professional connections to enrich courses with a variety of notable guest speakers and site visits.

Our strong international focus. To help develop active global citizens, WII encourages diversity in our classrooms and the examination of issues on a global level. We have custom-designed immersion seminars for groups of international students. International students make up a significant portion of our student body.

Urban Teacher Center has upcoming deadlines!

At UTC, we know that the traditional way of preparing teachers (article reviews, group discussions, limited opportunities to study in classrooms) does not equip new teachers to meet the needs of all of students in all schools.

That’s why we built a program that offers new teachers the opportunity to practice in classrooms while learning the content needed for effective teaching. UTC offers three different master’s tracks: elementary, secondary literacy and secondary math. Each degree comes with a second focus on special education.

Dionn Brown, UTC Director of STEM Instruction, explains how the secondary math program is unique in the field.

“STEM subjects are so engaging. It is curiosity meets exploration and invites students on an adventure. I have discovered through my interaction with novice teachers, that many did not have an opportunity to experience mathematics and science in an affirming and engaging way. It really is a perception problem. They think they lack the skills to be successful.

At UTC, we have 15 months to tinker around the wiring of their synapses and challenge their perception of themselves as learners and doers of mathematics.  We have 15 months to begin to lay down new memory about what an effective mathematics classroom looks and sounds like.  We simulate early counting experiences of 5 year olds in a kindergarten classroom. We divide fractions with the use of pattern blocks in a grade 5 classroom. We facilitate a mathematics discussion routine in a high school geometry classroom.  During those same 15 months they co-teach in a math classroom with a host teacher.  They also get three years of one-on-one coaching with a math coach. This is radically different in the field of teacher preparation.”

Sound delicious?  It is!  Join us for a job shadow day on Oct. 31, 2014 in DC, or a webinar on Nov. 10, 2014, or a Happy Hour in Baltimore on Nov. 13 at 6:30PM. Our next application deadline is Monday, November 17, 2014. You can apply on our website. Please email us if you have any questions.
