One thought on “Exploring internships with Randy Scherer

  1. I enjoyed listening to the discussion of the value of internships and how they can be restructured to develop the student/teacher dialogue. The current structure is for a sustained 3-4 weeks and it appears that the participants would consider a 2 day a week for an extended time.
