Online Internships: A Successful Model
DeWitt, Douglas M.; Rogers, Carolyn
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n4 Oct-Dec 2009
Online education has come of age, and along with the advent of online education, there have been numerous calls for improvement in administrator preparation programs. As a result, many administrative preparation programs have revised and reshaped their programs to address this concern. In this regard, this paper will discuss one component of the administrative certification program: "the administrative internship." The internship has specifically come under criticism for its lack of relevance and connection to the rest of the administrative preparation program. This paper presents one online university's effort to embrace change by offering state approved licensure programs in educational administration, including the internship. By offering this program in an online delivery system, the University has embraced new and emerging technologies and provided a model for both its graduates and other institutions of higher education.
