*NEW* Community of Practice for students engaged in full-time research this summer.
The EL Hub in partnership with the Office of Quality Assurance have launched a new optional online community of practice for any student engaged in full-time research work this summer. The goal of this community, delivered through Microsoft Teams, is to create connections, share resources and facilitate professional development opportunities for students through weekly discussion posts, socials, and virtual Lunch and Learn sessions with guest speakers. The community is 100% student-led, being co-facilitated by Natalie, a Peer Helper from the EL Hub, and Alexandra, a URA in the Office of Quality Assurance.
E-mail email@example.com to get set-up.
**It is also not too late for students to sign-up for our July and August professional development workshops. Full details can be found on our Summer Research Workshops webpage.**
