I work closely with Academic Administrative Officer, faculty members, instructors and the other DE Program Assistant to provide support for online and blended learning course delivery. I also assist students with Brightspace issues as required. My main roles are:

  • Ensuring UVic’s online learning management system sites are available for instructors on a timely basis; assisting with course site configuration, edit and maintenance.
  • Preparing required course textbooks and materials for students each term; ordering desktop copies for instructors.
  • Assisting with preparation for SOCW 312A DE mandatory on-campus session week.
  • Supporting BSW Working Group.
  • Assisting with BSW Admissions.
  • Entering course information to the DCU database for each term.
  • Maintaining and updating SOCW website and social media platforms.
  • Providing general support within the front office and backup support to the Office Manager/Assistant to the Director.

I hope I can help both students and instructors to enjoy the distance and on-campus education environment at UVic. If you experience any issues with Brightspace and course materials, please feel free to contact me. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with wonderful UVic students, faculty, instructors and staff members on this beautiful campus.
