Job description

The Kinesiology Peer Academic Coaching (KPAC) Program is a peer academic support program that supports the undergraduate student learning experience. The program is run by a team of dedicated volunteer student leaders who assist Kinesiology students build a base of knowledge and academic skills in their first year to enhance their learning in upper year classes. KPAC is a student-driven program, overseen by the Vice President Academic in the Kinesiology Undergraduate Society (KUS) and advised by the Student Engagement Officer in the School of Kinesiology.

This upcoming year, KPAC will be shifting its focus away from tutoring, and implementing the “coach approach.” The program will bring back office hours to support first year students with “coaching conversations,” which helps students become better learners. Conversation topics may include helping students identify challenges, building an academic success plan, learning time management strategies, and/or helping with goal setting. KPAC will also deliver academic skills workshops throughout the year. The focus of these workshops will be decided by the first year students in the beginning of the year.

Coordinators will be working directly with the KPAC coaches to plan and deliver office hours and workshops. They will work in collaboration with the KUS and the School of Kinesiology to help the program employ the “coach approach”.

Hours/time commitment

3-5 hours per week
