Course Representatives are well-trained students who make weekly 3-minute class announcements on topics such as study tips, health and wellness, student leadership, and career skills to encourage their classmates to engage in their own personal and academic success.
Course Representatives also liaise with classmates and the course director to improve students' learning experiences. They manage an online discussion forum on the course eClass page where students can connect with one another, share resources, and support each other throughout the course.
Lastly, Course Representatives also organize non-facilitated study sessions to promote healthy study strategies.
We recruit Course Representatives from all core courses in the Faculty of Health programs: Global Health, Health Studies (Policy, Management, Informatics), Kinesiology and Health Science, Nursing, and Psychology. Want to improve your presentation and leadership skills? This is the perfect peer leadership opportunity for you!
