TEACHING, TRAINING, FACILITATION &  INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN

SSA STUDENT STAFF TRAINING CANVAS MODULE

Enrolment Services Project Assistant
Enrolment Services, UBC

Created a student staff training module alongside another student staff on Canvas to include all related information for all student staff from general information to role-specific portfolios.

FINANCIAL WELLNESS PEER TRAINING

Enrolment Services Project Assistant

Enrolment Services, UBC

Created a presentation and outline of a training session, including activities from the Financial Wellness Peers.

SUMMER FINANCIAL WELLNESS WEBINAR UPDATE & IMPROVEMENT

Enrolment Services Project Assistant

Enrolment Services, UBC

Updated the presentations and resource packages for Funding Your Year and Managing Your Student Loans website with information for the upcoming school year, increasing the visual appeal and engagement activities.

YOGA CLUB EXECUTIVE TRAINING

President

UBC Yoga Club, UBC

The UBC Yoga Club runs 23 classes per term during the school year where all club executives are required to set-up, process payments and clean up after their assigned yoga class. To ensure all returning and new executives are well-versed in how to use Mindbody and other steps, I created a video tutorial series using Lightworks video editing software along with a powerpoint training session via Google Hangouts to train the executives.

YOGA TEACHER ONBOARDING & TRAINING TEMPLATES

President

UBC Yoga Club, UBC

I created an on-boarding template for Teachers who are hired to teach at the club to provide information on their pay (base rate, bonus and schedule), expectations, substitutions and more for efficient on-boarding. 

I also created training templates for running yoga classes. During the exam and summer seasons, yoga classes are run by the yoga teachers so the training templates give them all of the instructions and resources (ie. videos and other tutorials) to successfully run the yoga classes without our club executives.

FINANCIAL WELLNESS RESOURCES CANVAS MODULE

Enrolment Services Project Assistant

Enrolment Services, UBC

LFS 100 FAQs.PNG

LFS100 WEBSITE FAQS

Educational Development Assistant

Faculty of Land and Food Systems, UBC

Created a list of FAQs (questions and answers) for the LFS100 website to support the first year transition with feedback from LFS Student Services. Implemented the accordion shortcodes onto the LFS100 wordpress website and added all of the questions with answers along with any changes to the content.

LFS100 INFOGRAPHICS

Educational Development Assistant

Faculty of Land and Food Systems, UBC

Created 3 infographics on what has helped students adjust to university, challenges in adjusting to university and how university is different front high school. Content used Nvivo survey data from past students and visually created using Piktochart.

Residence Meal Plan Guide 1.png

2018-2019 RESIDENCE MEAL GUIDE

Enrolment Services Project Assistant

Enrolment Services, UBC

For some UBC students who receive scholarships, there is a specific amount set aside for the meal plan and spending within this can be difficult. This 30-page guide was co-created along with my partner, Anna, to give students information, tools and strategies to spend their meal dollars appropriately throughout the year.

Recipes for Students 1.png

2018-2019 RECIPES FOR STUDENTS

Enrolment Services Project Assistant

Enrolment Services, UBC

University is a time of transition as students become more independent and this also means on top of handling their academic workload, extracurriculars and work - they must also cook for themselves. I created this 17-page guide using my degree for simple, healthy recipes and strategies that students could use to eat healthy and affordably. The resource is used internally for Enrolment Services Advisors to provide students with some examples during personal advising appointments.

UBC SUCCESS & SURVIVAL GUIDE

2018-2019

Personal Project

I created this 46-slide PowerPoint resource guide for students where I put all of the useful website links and small bits of information about all of the opportunities and resources available to them as UBC students. 

I chose to make one because as an Orientation Leader with a group of first year students who have just started university who may be anxious, I'm sure many students would have wanted a guide like this that organizes many aspects of being a UBC student in one place!

 

DESIGN, MARKETING & PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT FRAMEWORK 

Experiential Education Project Assistant

Centre for Community Engaged Learning, UBC

I supported the visual creation of the Community Engagement Framework for the International Leaders of Tomorrow Scholars to support their 4-year programming using Canva.

SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE & PROMOTION MATERIALS RENEWAL

Vice-President External

UBC Yoga Club, UBC

As Vice-President External overseeing sponsors and promotions I updated Sponsorship Package (11 pages) using Canva that I believed would streamline our existing sponsors and any new ones interested in forming a collaborative relationship with us.

SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM CREATION & DEVELOPMENT

Sponsorship Coordinator

UBC Yoga Club, UBC

As a request from the President of the club, the aim was to create the club's first sponsorship program (9 pages) to better foster new partnerships and connections with local organizations who reflect the club's mission.

BOOK: THE COACHING HABIT

June 20, 2019

I was recommended this book by a career educator I frequently talk with and although I would not be in a "manager" position anytime soon, I still thought it would be intriguing to read about.
