The New Internship Experience (NIE)
Be In The Classroom. In Real-Time.
An education internship abroad provides students with new and distinct perspectives and the NIE offers future educators the opportunity to work directly with teachers in both elementary and middle schools in Verona. In the NIE, our interns not only assist teachers in real-time in a range of classroom settings, but they also take part in course analysis, career seminars and discussions on current and emerging teaching practices and learn to apply these to their own experiences.
