This session will engage faculty and Career Exploration and Education staff in sharing how the Work Study program can be a valuable resource to support your inquiry/research on teaching project. As a tri-campus program, over 3,500 students (undergraduate and graduate) are hired annually through the Work Study program, providing them with a meaningful Work Integrated Learning opportunity. In this session you will learn about the Work Study program, including upcoming application deadlines and the range of resources available (e.g., the Career Learning Network, the Research Catalogue, and the Work Study job board) to support you in both recruiting and working with your students throughout their position. You will also hear from three faculty who will share their experiences in collaborating with Work Study students on research projects. A facilitated Q &A will follow.
Please bring your own lunch. Light refreshments will be provided.
