We want you to join our team!
Working with and for the incredible Digital Human Library provided me with opportunities to build invaluable skills and relationships. Never before would I have thought I’d be the one creating experiences and activities for thousands of teachers and students across Canada. Watching my work come to life was more than I ever could have asked for!”

Each year the Digital Human Library hires Bachelor of Education students across the country to work in a variety of positions as interns. Internship opportunities provide students with hands-on real world experiences in education with opportunities to learn and network with others.
The next generation of Canada’s entrepreneurs, researchers and innovators require a broad set of skills to succeed in and contribute to the global economy. To meet this need, universities are equipping students with career-boosting learning experiences, such as co-ops and internships, research projects and mentorship programs.

Meet Our Interns 2017-2018
Meghan Tutton is an aspiring teacher currently studying at Lakehead University in Orillia, ON. Meghan is constantly pursuing innovative ways to engage students in order to encourage individual growth and development. Her passion for individual growth is why she is excited to participate in a course called Digital Media Literacy which inspires her to think differently (and critically!) about incorporating digital technologies in the classroom. Through Meghan’s internship at the Digital Human Library, she will focus on developing new skills, allowing her to integrate digital media within the classroom. Meghan believes this will result in engaged students and more meaningful lessons.
