Minorities and Women Individualized Internship Project. Final Report, December 1, 1980 to November 30, 1981.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The Individualized Internship Project of the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL) aims to promote the participation and advancement of promising young professional women and minorities in the area of Educational Research and Development (ERD). Five interns from minority backgrounds participated in the program in 1980-81, during which they engaged in a variety of ERD experiences while simultaneously pursuing the requirements for the doctorate in their respective areas of specialization. The program consisted of three components: (1) personal development, which provided technical knowledge, skills, and practical experience in ERD inside and outside the traditional educational system, and provided opportunities for interns to complete their degree programs; (2) institutional liaison, which placed the interns in individual projects and maintained liaison with current and prospective institutional employers of the interns; and (3) documentation of each intern's progress. At the end of the year-long program, the interns assessed their program experiences using evaluation instruments on which they indicated (1) the extent to which they perceived their individual program goals as having been accomplished; (2) the extent to which they felt stated SEDL program objectives were attained; and (3) the specific ERD skills that they felt they needed to develop further after having participated in the program.
