Divina Lama: Open Educational Resources
In my role as a Student Advisory Board member, I worked with Yoli and Cait on the library’s OER initiative. This was an amazing opportunity to work in an environment where everyone’s contributions were valued and put into action. I also loved that I was able to transition and develop some of the skills I had gained from volunteering for student run organizations in the past. A perfect commitment for any student who loves working within a committed team that encourages your professional growth!
