Volunteer Opportunity: UW Libraries – Allen Library North Exhibit for January 2020
Are you looking for “real world” library-related experience? Are you interested in putting your creative talents to use in creating a library exhibit? The UW Libraries is looking for iSchool students to help with an exhibit that will be installed in the Allen Library North Lobby in January. The theme of the exhibit is yet to be finalized, but will likely focus on either the Burke Museum or light/lack of light in the season of winter. Unfortunately, they are not able to offer compensation for your efforts, but the experience will be relevant and the community will be supportive.
Are you a graduate student who wants to communicate your capstone, research, or pedagogy to a wider audience? Would you like to get feedback about your presentation style from a large group of smart, supportive, and interdisciplinary people? Like a famous comedian, would you like to test your material in front of a big audience and see if it works?
If your answers are “Yes! Yes! YES!” then Graduate Core Programs and the UW Libraries invite you to apply for Scholars’ Studio. Scholars’ Studio is a fun, low stakes, supportive event in which you present your research in a vivid 5-minute lightning talk to 60-100 UW community members.
Are you a graduate student engaged in academic or professional work that you wish you could communicate to a broader audience? Interested in building your resume while learning how to tell compelling stories about meaningful topics? Curious about what you can do with a podcast?
If YES: the UW Libraries invites you to apply for Storytelling Fellows! This is an innovative, hands-on program designed to highlight the interests and accomplishments of UW graduate students, using digital-storytelling skills and technologies. This totally free, three-week online program will take approximately 10 accepted fellows through the start-to-finish process of envisioning and creating a podcast suitable for an online portfolio, professional presentation, or academic project.
