Learning Technology Rovers
Learning Technology Rovers (LTRs) are co-op students who focus primarily on providing first-tier support for faculty and staff. LTR activities include:
- Providing one-on-one assistance with the use of various learning technologies
- Troubleshooting and resolving issues online or in person
- Making appropriate referrals to the LT Hub, CTLT, and/or UBC IT when required
Roves provide in-person support for any learning technology issues or questions UBC Science faculty members may have. LT Roves can help faculty:
- Learn how to use specific learning technologies and see an in-person demonstration
- Work through issues in person that are too difficult or complex to explain over email
- Include a student’s perspective in your course design
Roves are now virtual. While LTRs hold drop-in sessions every Wednesday, 10:00am - 12:00pm, and Friday, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, if you are unable to attend the drop-ins, you can also schedule an appointment with us by emailing LT.email@example.com.
