The COVID-19 pandemic led to many educational institutions pivoting to online teaching and, even as we return to face-to-face teaching, technology adoption and usage continues at record levels. With the growth in technology adoption, UBC has seen a measurable increase in demand for student support from our student body. Job roles focused on supporting students is an emerging area of need in educational technology support. UBC’s Learning Technology Hub has added co-op student roles to our team as the primary resource in meeting this emerging and growing need. Join us for a lively discussion including insight from one of our stellar students as we reveal the challenges faced and successes achieved in exploring this new frontier.
