Student Representatives

Be a voice for your College with the Hub for Teaching and Learning Excellence!


Mandate

The Hub for Teaching and Learning Excellence (“the Hub”) will serve as a platform to bring people together in establishing a community of practitioners to share information, teaching experiences, and resources.

The Hub is designed to foster and encourage new and innovative approaches to curriculum development and pedagogy in the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences (CSAHS) in undergraduate and graduate programming.

Objectives

The Hub will strive to support the creation of a community of practice in teaching and learning excellence and curriculum improvement and innovation. Student representation is critical in providing a learner’s perspective to the Advisory Committee on the Hub’s activities.

Student representatives should not just be reporting to the Hub from their perspectives, rather they are expected to mediate between the Hub and the larger student body. There will be ongoing support for the student representatives in the development of strategies to mediate between the Hub and the larger student population.

To Apply

We are currently seeking one (1) undergraduate student and one (1) graduate student to sit on the Hub’s Advisory Committee for the 2020-2021 academic year. The commitment would be to attend approximately two meetings a semester and an invitation to attend on-campus events as they occur. Eligible students should be full-time students, in good-standing, and enrolled in CSAHS. Students from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
