Description du stage : Interns will be associated with the current UDSM-MUN UPCD Tier 2 "Sustaining Coastal Fishing Communities." The objective of this project is to improve the capacity of the UDSM to respond to the fisheries and related environmental needs of rural marine coastal communities. The project primarily involves developing the academic capacity (teaching, curriculum, research) of FAST, and working with selected communities to identify their sector-related needs and possible interventions. This community aspect included the development and implementation of an outreach media/communications program through the involvement of the UDSM Institute of Journalism and Mass Communications, thereby at the same time enhancing their capacity to deliver media/communications courses and participate in national socio-economic development.

In Canada
The intern will undertake extensive predeparture preparation prior to their overseas posting including: research of host organization and country; health assessment /immunizations, travel arrangements and accommodations; access to intern resource centre/library; and one week prior to departure, all interns meet at MI for briefings. During the week, the interns will undertake consultations with former interns, faculty members, and expats; and participate in a three-day predeparture briefing conducted by The Centre for Intercultural Learning (CIL). This briefing includes: cross-cultural effectiveness (e.g. communicating with difficult people, emotional intelligence); culture shock awareness; personal and professional career planning and goal setting; health and safety; gender issues related to local context; international and country development issues; presentations to one another; and group work. Interns are trained in results based management and report writing.

Interns are also matched with a network of local/national/ international contacts within their field.
