The purpose of this report is to present the results of an internship study and associated development project. The objective of my internship was personal professional development through observation and assumption of the dual roles of secondary school learning resources teacher and curriculum software designer. Based upon my experiences in these roles, a guide for teacher design of Internet multimedia curriculum lessons was produced. Peer critique of this guide during my internship facilitated its development. -- Chapter One explains the rationale for the choice of internship setting, outlines the internship experiences, describes the evaluation and supervision procedures and provides background information for the research component. Chapter Two is a review of the literature on Internet homepage and multimedia design with respect to important aspects of educational pedagogy, and in particular the relationships between computer-based multimedia and the theory of multiple intelligences. Chapter Three describes the Internet Multimedia Curriculum Design Guide (see enclosed compact disc) - the product of literature reviews, teacher interviews, peer collaboration and classroom observations. It is this guide that sets forth the design principles for teaching via Internet and multimedia incorporation in classroom environments. This chapter includes two examples designed based on the philosophy set forth in the IMCD guide - a plate tectonics lesson relating to faulting and folding, and an Earth Day lesson / scavenger hunt. Teacher reaction to the IMCD guide and student reaction to the two example lessons is provided. Chapter Four discusses the internship experience and the role of the learning resources computer specialist in an information technology environment.
