Learning Resources production

The home of the learning resources kitchen.

Responsibilities:

  • Selection and dissemination of content. Our faculty reference librarians provide support to the teaching staff and help them choose the best learning resources for UOC courses. These professionals know which sources to go to and how to find the necessary information at any given time. In this internship you will help the subject librarians choose the best information sources to meet the needs of each case.
     

  • Production of learning resources. When a teacher asks for new material at our University, a multidisciplinary team helps the teacher choose the format best matched to the course (a video, a website, a novelette, etc). From that point onwards, the gearwheels start turning: the project is planned and monitored. In this internship you will be providing support for management and editorial control.
