Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program interns will complete a portfolio documenting their involvement, as well as a survey regarding the process and improvement suggestions. We expect they will show an increase in knowledge and enhanced skills and that they would recommend the intern process to others. Interns will be asked to keep a calendar of hours, produce a professional looking resume, produce a final report/project, take photos, videos, and sketches to document involvement and the final project and complete an end of term ôcheck outö sheet offering suggestions for improvements to the program. All work will be critiqued by the mentor in an interview situation. In addition, the mentor will complete a survey about their involvement in the experience and suggestions for future involvement.

Measurable Outcome(s)

All eval methods fit into the proposed methods, but each mentor took slightly different approaches depending on the nature of the internship. In each internship the interns increased their knowledge and skill in that area and grew in understanding of what it takes to mount a major production.
