Learning Commons Web Team and Peer Assistant at UBC’s Chapman Learning Commons

May 2010 – December 2011

Vancouver, BC

The Learning Commons Website is a collaborative project between students, the library and a variety of campus partners to provide students with a tool to learn better. During the summer of 2011, I worked on a massive redesign of the site. As we moved away from website development and into the day-to-day operations, my role transitioned into content editor and social media wizard to increase student interest and engagement.

In addition to this project, this position entails maintaining the Chapman Learning Commons as a conducive learning environment and helping guide students to proper resources throughout UBC.
