Student Assistant Guide
A link to the guide for Student Assistants in the OIT computer labs covering employment responsibilities, software support and more.
Examples of what’s in the guide:
Resume and Social Media Training
Two examples of the training I have done for Student Assistants on resume writing and social media networking. These training sessions combine presentation, discussion, and a workshop where SAs can bring in their resumes to get advice on how they are written.
- A 2015 version of the Resume and Social Media training for Student Assistants
- A 2014 Prezi on training Student Assistants for Your Resume and Social Networking
Student Assistant interview and New Hire Training Quizzes
In order to improve the quality of students we hire as well as better train our current students, I have created a number of quizzes covering software, customer service and other topics covered in our training sessions for new employees.
Lynda.com Training through Blackboard
To prepare our Student Assistants for more responsibilities and to help them be more helpful for our patrons, I have recently begun a program to encourage students to take Lynda.com training. I have a group using Blackboard that the students belong to and can access a Lynda.com playlist of required and recommended training material.
Role Play for Student Assistant Training
Periodically, we will do mass training sessions for our students that involve discussion and role play. Below are some examples of the role play scenarios I have used for training Student Assistants.
Photos used in Training sessions
Several years ago, I created a training handout for Student Assistants that included photos showing the topics we were going to cover. Below are examples of some of our training photos.
