Jobs – Graduate Work Learn at The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication. Due:

Posted on

The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication is hiring for the 2017-18 academic year. These Work Learn positions have been posted on CareersOnline and will close on August 13, 2017. 
 
Position Title: WL W17 Peer Writing Consultant
CareersOnline Job ID: 839394
Hourly Wage: $20.60
 
Consultants with the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication (CWSC) have the opportunity to serve the UBC student body in a number of ways. Writing Consultants primarily work with students, one-on-one or in small groups, to provide support specific to writing and academic communication. However, the role can also include developing and leading workshops, providing embedded support within a classroom, working with UBC Library and the Chapman Learning Commons team to develop online modules and resources, and promoting the service to students and faculty members alike. For successful graduate student applicants, the role may also include leading panels on thesis and dissertation writing and assisting at Thesis Boot Camp and other special events. 
 
The CWSC serves students from all disciplines and programs, and is a welcoming and inclusive space in which students can ask questions and share their work on their journeys to becoming stronger writers. A good writing consultant is flexible, curious, and comes into each interaction without preconceived notions about a student or their learning and writing process. They understand and value the role of writing as both a form of communication and a learning tool, and are open to the forms it takes across campus. They desire collaboration with peers and students and are actively looking for ways to grow.
