Onboarding and supervision of student employees
As a supervisor of a student employee, you have an opportunity to mentor and coach someone who may have limited experience in the workplace. You're expected to provide an orientation, performance expectations, and performance feedback.
The supervisor is responsible for managing any student issues. Don't hesitate to contact the relevant department, administrator, human resources manager or a member of the broader human resources team if you need help or have any questions.
Also see below information on processes for ending student appointments.
If a student requires an email address, access to a phone, and/or a workstation, contact UBC Information Technology Services, or follow the same departmental processes that you use for staff.
Note that any costs associated with the above will need to be covered by the department or grant.
Students are expected to maintain their grades and minimum credits. Students are obligated to disclose their standing or change in standing with respect to academic probation.
UBC's Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) is mandated with enhancing the teaching skills and advancing the scholarly practice of all members of the UBC teaching community and supporting technology-enabled learning environments and distance learning opportunities.
Teaching assistants may qualify for some of the workshops held by CTLT. Departments may choose to fund other professional development opportunities for their student employees.
Performance reviews and feedback
Having a student employee in the workplace is an excellent opportunity for you to help students develop their skills in a safe environment. It's recommended that you meet with students on a periodic basis to provide performance feedback.
