End of an Internship

By Cecily Plascott – Open Content Curator Intern, 2018

Somehow, 11 weeks have passed and I have found myself at the end of my internship with Information Services. While most of the other Argyle House interns are spending another week here, I am leaving early to escape fringe madness and top up on vitamin D in Barcelona.

Over the last 2.75 months, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a variety of open educational resources and, even better, a load of different people. Alongside topping up my primary level Geography knowledge, I have acquired buckets of experience in copyright and licensing, social media, networking, team work, and how to effectively organise a workload over an extended period of time.

During the summer I also spent time working on several new projects that remain ongoing – it is exciting to see how different areas across the University are working on open education.

Overall, the best part of the internship has been the ability to work with people across all levels of the university. I have collaborated with students from the Geosciences Outreach programme, worked with my fellow ISG interns on our own blog, and engaged with educational professionals.
