Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy during these unprecedented times. We are excited to announce that starting the week of April 6, we are offering DISCOVER sessions online to students through Google Meets / Hangouts!
We are planning on hosting these virtual sessions on Thursdays from 4:30-6:30 PM, as well as offering one-on-one appointment based sessions to students in order to be flexible with their schedules. Students will have the option of audio/video calling with mentors or just chatting with us via instant messaging.
DISCOVER Online can be a useful resource for students during this challenging time. As students are transitioning to online classes on a rather irregular basis and are faced with uncharted territory when it comes to both receiving academic support and transitioning into post-secondary in these circumstances, we would like to be there to offer our help. Whether it be getting the additional academic support in subject areas students are not grasping due to the lack of in-class instruction, needing additional assistance for managing assignments and studying on a self-managed schedule, or even just having the opportunity to talk to a peer mentor during this time where we are all limited in our contact with others, we would like DISCOVER to be an available resource for those who may need it.
If you are interested in DISCOVER Online, you can register for it here! Registration will add you to our mailing list, which will allow us to send you an invite to our virtual session hosted via Google Meets. We welcome you to join our Google Classroom as well, which includes access to various educational resources and where we will share updates and lesson plans for upcoming sessions. The classroom code is: 77ukbws! (Note: this classroom can only be joined through non-organizational google accounts– you will not be able to access it through an EPSB gmail account)
Wishing you all the best!
The DISCOVER Team
