Internships

Learning Ally’s Internship Program is designed to provide experience solving relevant problems that directly impact our ability to better serve our members. Interns are provided with a problem statement and guidelines on how to solve. From there, they exercise initiative in applying their own creativity, technical skills, and perspective in finding the solution. Along the way they are provided with guidance from our management team but largely self-manage their own progress. Our internship projects are deliberately designed to maximize the learning experience for our interns while also producing output that benefits our members.

In prior years, Learning Ally interns have led solutions focused on:

  • Qualitative research to better understand the attitudes and needs of K-12 students who struggle to read and the role human audio vs synthetic audio can play in reading
  • Quantitative analysis to understand the reading behaviors of our students, and also track the correlation between their engagement and performance on state summative assessment reading benchmarks
  • Development of improvements to the technology powering Learning Ally audiobooks, and optimizing the ability for our narrators and studios to produce 5,000 titles per year
"My internship at Learning Ally has been a tremendous growth experience. Not only have I learned what kind of career I would like to pursue within my field, but I learned the best business practices that cannot be found within the classroom. Between my supervisor, Learning Ally staff, and others in the community, I have learned more about project management, systems analyses, and working with teams inside and outside the business. I am so grateful to have gained the knowledge and experience that I have through this internship, and would highly recommend Learning Ally to anyone and everyone." - E Mortenson, Technology Internship, 2016
