The Maple League provides our students with even better chances for resilience, engagement, and success thanks to collaborative and innovative opportunities offered through this consortium.
GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS
The Maple League offers students across all four universities incredible opportunities to expand their horizons, and make meaningful change on their campuses.
Maple League Courses
Maple League Courses allow students to connect with new mentors, new colleagues, and new friends across all four campuses through online and hybrid courses. Courses can be taken in the fall, winter, spring, and summer semesters.
Online Learning and Technology Consultants (OLTC) Program
The global pandemic encouraged us to re-think traditional modes of design and delivery, and in doing so advanced our thinking about student expertise in productive ways. In June 2020, Bishop’s University hired university students as Online Learning and Technology Consultants (OLTCs) from all academic disciplines to help support faculty members prepare for Fall 2020. The program provided students with work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences and future-facing skill development (digital literacy, design thinking, creative problem solving, emotional and social intelligence), while working directly with faculty to enhance their courses.
After the success of the OLTC pilot program at Bishop’s University, the Maple League expanded the program across the four associated universities (Acadia, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, St. Francis Xavier) during the 2021-22 academic year, with both a curricular and co-curricular learning experience available to students funded through the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER), Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada, and Canada Summer Jobs.
