Opening Gateways Research Assistants program – deadline November 30, 2015!

Have you ever wanted more, FREE, high quality resources to help you learn outside of
class? There’s a new initiative on campus – Opening Gateways – to create such materials, called open educational resources (OERs), and we would like you to be part of our team. Guided by research about just how it is that students learn mathematics, we are developing OERs such as supplementary videos, real-world applications, and instant feedback enabling WeBWorK assignments for gateway mathematics courses. The materials we create will be freely available to everyone to help support students both at City Tech and all over the world.

So– come be part of the education revolution: open digital access to the highest quality learning materials for everyone! As part of our development team you will gain valuable experience integrating creative thinking and teamwork with applying technical skills to solve real-world problems. If you enjoy putting in work where it matters, paying careful attention to the details, and are comfortable working independently and as part of a team, you are what we’re looking for.

The application deadline is Monday, November 30, 2016. The commitment is February 1 – March 15, 2016, 7 hours/week, $15/hour.

Murmur Digital Storytelling Internship – Fall 2015

Murmur [http://murmurco.com] is a digital storytelling agency in NYC.

Murmur is currently working on a new way to tell journalism stories for mobile. They are seeking an intern from either the documentary or journalism fields, who is willing to conduct research on contemporary and historical events, and help write short entries about those events. This project is particularly interested in engaging readers in multiple POVs about these events.

For example, if you were in the shoes of Harry Truman, would you have dropped the bomb on Japan? There are two major perspectives on this issue, each backed up by evidence. This project will be examining both historical and contemporary news items in this way.

This is an unpaid internship with flexible hours for Fall 2015.

If interested, please contact Mike Knowlton at mike@murmurco.com
