Meet the new EDTL Student Interns
Key to ensuring the student voice is at the center of the EDTL project is our intern team, and we are always lucky to have new faces and new perspectives. Read on to meet our new additions to the team and learn more about the EDTL interns you will definitely be hearing a lot from over the next few months.
Our Intern team has been hard at work the past few months. Among the activity of the EDTL student interns was creating student resources and leading a webinar on the return to campus. Our EDTL Student Interns bring a student voice to the project, and contribute to EDTL resources in both a University-level and nationally. They are a vital part of enhancing digital teaching and learning and we’re always delighted to welcome so many new faces, from a broad range of subjects and stages of study, so read on to learn about the newest additions to our intern team.
