The Student Learning Hub is available to help students in a variety of academic areas. If you have a student who could benefit from our services, we encourage you to refer them to us early to ensure they receive the maximum benefit.
Although you are welcome to encourage your class to utilize all supports in the Student Learning Hub, we do not recommend obligating an entire class to book an appointment as a course requirement or for extra credit.
Such requirements may strain our limited resources and this practice can result in unproductive consultations.
We encourage instructors to include a statement in their syllabi encouraging students to book an appointment with a writing consultants in the Student Learning Hub to get feedback at any stage of the writing process (see below).
At the beginning of each term we circulate a slide show that you can share with your class about the Student Learning Hub. If you have not received our slide show, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, our consultants can provide a visit to your class to provide a five to ten minute overview of the Student Learning Hub at your request. Email email@example.com.

Feel free to copy or customize the following statement specifically for writing supports:
Improve your writing with free support from the Student Learning Hub—now online and flexible to meet your remote learning needs! Undergraduate students from every discipline, working on any type of written course assignment (or presentation), are welcome. We support writers at all stages of the writing process, from getting started and planning to drafting and revising. Peer writing consultants focus on your needs as a writer—they don’t “edit” or “proofread.” Instead, they listen, read, ask questions, and share strategies for doing it yourself, allowing you to explore your innate writing talents and discover a path to academic success that is uniquely yours. Don’t wait—successful learners access support early and often. Visit students.ok.ubc.ca/hub or contact email@example.com
Yes. Students may book a group consultation if they are working on a group assignment. However, a consultant will not discuss work written by an absent group member.
Feel free to utilize or link to any materials created by our staff, but you may need to request permission for materials from other institutions that are linked to our site.
Advice about writing instruction varies based on its purpose and context: general, discipline specific, or writing across the curriculum. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in consulting about incorporating, designing, or revising writing assignments in any field or discipline.
When considering which courses receive SL support, we use the following criteria – if the course has a high (drop-fail-withdrawal) DFW rate, if lots of students are enrolled in the course, and if the course is a core prerequisite to continue in a degree or major. Using data from the previous winter session, we proactively identify which courses may benefit from SL and contact Faculty to discuss including the support for the following school year. If you do not have SL in your class but think it would be helpful, you are welcome to contact us at email@example.com.
Yes! The learning strategists are available and here to help! Learning strategists offer individualized support in the form of a one-on-one strength based conversation. By helping their peers develop skills in time management, procrastination, motivation, exam preparation, reading textbooks, note taking, and much more, Strategists encourage exploration and facilitate positive changes to students’ studying and learning practices. Students can book a meeting with a Strategist online.
