Beyond the classroom

Supplemental Learning Academic Support Leader

Thompson Rivers University 2010 – 2012

Supplemental Learning (SL) Leaders are students who are brought on to provide support for traditionally difficult first or second year courses. SL Leaders conduct group learning sessions wherein the attendees participate in learning activities related to their course. I was an SL Leader for the PSYC 2130 and PSYC 2230 course (Childhood and Adolescence Psychology 1 & 2). As an SL Leader, I was required to attend training sessions throughout the academic year, attend lectures in the course I was supporting, conduct regular SL sessions 2 – 3 times per week and act as a paraprofessional role model for the students in the course I was supporting.

The Co-Curricular Record is an official TRU document that highlights activities and accomplishments gained both inside and outside of the classroom.
