The Chapman Learning CommonsThe Learning Commons website is an evolving collection of student-curated learning resources to support academic success and wellness. Based out of the Chapman Learning Commons in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the Learning Commons website is a collaboration between UBC Library, the Centre for Teaching, Learning & Technology and the Centre for Student Involvement & Careers. Through an emphasis on peer-led, student-driven initiatives and shared-decision making, we strive to enrich academic support and enhance the experience of all UBC students, with an emphasis on the undergraduate experience. The website provides companion resources to our in-person services in the Chapman Learning Commons, where we provide access to advanced technologies, collaborative work areas, workshop space and learning support. Home to the Centre for Writing & Scholarly Communication and AMS Tutoring drop-in help, the Chapman Learning Commons emphasizes a learner- and student-centered approach to services
Our friendly staff of Chapman Learning Commons Assistants, members of the UBC community, take on the role of helping library-users access these offered services as well as pointing students and community members in the right direction with their learning, resources and explorations on campus.
Hello! I am Saeid, currently studying Economics. I believe that the only greatness for a man is immortality, and this is why I joined the elite ranks of the Chapman Learning Commons, as a CLCA. A hero can be anyone, even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as fixing the printer jam so that your paper is ready before class. I am whatever the patrons of the Chapman Learning Commons need me to be.
Hello! My name is Umaima (pronounced like Memma) and I am a 4th year Economics student pursuing a minor in Philosophy. On a typical day, you can find me listening to podcasts, exploring Vancouver's eateries, or discovering interesting music and art. I strive to increase awareness of our services, and learn more about general resources at UBC and pass along that knowledge to students.
Hi! I am Sindhu, a 3rd year student planning to pursue International relations. When not studying or working, I often make myself a cup of tea and combine it with pleasure reading. I believe that my mentality is that of a samurai. I would rather commit seppuku than fail and that is why as a CLCA, I want to do my best while helping the patrons with whatever questions they have and be resourceful.
Hi! My name is Pauline and I am a third year Economics major and Commerce minor. I recently joined the CLC team in September and it has so far been an exciting learning experience. I saw it as a new challenge to take on to better myself in a professional and personal manner. So, if you're in the area, stop by and say hello. I'll be by the desk saving the world one printing at a time.
