Government program puts students in driver’s seat of virtual learning

When COVID-19 forced Universities around the world to shift to a fully virtual setting, the University of Windsor turned to students to make this pivot on campus possible.

This summer, 41 students across all academic disciplines were hired to assist in the Office of Open Learning; the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL); and the Student Success and Leadership Centre.

Together, these diverse and cross-disciplinary teams played a key role in the University’s transition to online classes, online academic support, and much more.
