Opportunity: Online Learning and Technology Consultants (OLTC) Program Coordinator

by Jessica Riddell

The Bishop’s University pilot project, launched in June 2020, hired 23 undergraduate students to help faculty prepare for Fall 2020 as OLTCs. They were trained in educational technology and pedagogy, with a particular focus on supporting high impact practices, accessibility and accommodations, and authentic learning environments. The OLTC program goals are threefold: 

1. Offer individualized support for faculty to enhance student learning experiences (through engagement, community-building, and transformative learning) in person and remotely

2. Provide students with work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences and future-facing skill development (digital literacy, design thinking, creative problem solving, emotional and social intelligence) 

3. Help re-imagine a 21st-century liberal education that engages students as key collaborators in the co-design of their university experience

The OLTC program is a cutting-edge example of the creative ways that universities can provide opportunities for students to develop key transferable skills, such as teamwork, leadership, analytical skills, written and verbal communication, and knowledge mobilization. The benefits of these skills reach far beyond the student employee; they have large impacts on the institution, the higher education sector, and the communities within which these universities are embedded. We are currently hiring for a Project Coordinator of the OLTC program.
