Learning Commons

The Learning Commons provides a safe and supportive environment for students and members of the community to learn and study.

The Learning Commons was developed in summer 2021 with the community in mind. It was designed to meet the needs of our community by providing a comfortable space with access to computers, internet and tools to support you in your educational journey.

Upon entering the space, you’ll meet our Learning Commons Coordinator, Nic, and our Campus Tutor, Dustin. Nic and Judy are here to help you succeed. They are available during Learning Common hours for support.

I am happy to assist you in applying for awards, financial aid, and sponsorship. I can also connect you to counsellors and accessibility services if needed.

I work with students in all steps along their educational path anywhere from university preparation to a Master of Education. My education background includes BEd, MEd, MPA, and Ph.D. in Adult Education and Human Resource Development.
