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.

Dear SAGE Community,

The Office of Indigenous Education is accepting applications for the SAGE Provincial Coordinator, Graduate Academic Assistant. Please email indigenous.education@ubc.ca with any questions.

SAGE is such a wonderful community of scholars! I am truly grateful for the learning experiences, and opportunities to serve Indigenous grad students for the past two and a half years. As of September, I have become a part of the team at the First Nations House of Learning, as the Aboriginal Student and Community Development Officer. I hope to be a resource to Indigenous graduate students in this role, and to continue being an active member of SAGE while I finish my PhD. I invite all of you to drop by room 184 at the Longhouse to visit anytime – please come say hi!

Thanks and enjoy the SAGE Digest!

Bula Vinaka Everyone,

We are just planning our SAGE events for January onwards and wanted to let you know what we have planned and get some feedback around timing and dates
Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee
We are looking for Indigenous graduate students to be on the planning committee for this years Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us and I will send you the details for the next meeting.
Weekend Writing Retreat
We will be hosting a weekend writing retreat in early February, please keep an eye out for the invite!
 
12 Week Writing Intensive
We would like to host a 12 week writing intensive. This is a chance of you to commit to meeting every fortnight for 12 weeks to make a plan for a writing goal and then share your progress with the group. The meetings will be every fortnight from 12:30-3:30, we just need a day of the week. So if this sounds like something you would be interested in please get in touch with a day(s) that works for you and we will go with the majority day.
 
Coffee and Catch Up
We would like to run coffee and catch up again from January. Coffee and Catch Up is a social gathering once a week in the morning, if this is something you would like to come to please let me know which day of the week works best for you (usually we run them from 9:30 onwards) and we will send out an invite once we have a day of the week.
Anything else….
If there is something else you would like SAGE to run please get in touch. We are hoping to get visiting Indigenous academics to also spend some time with graduate students, and we will keep you updated as those opportunities arise. But if there are other workshops or gatherings that you think would be helpful please let us know.
Thank you,
