Education students participate in Re-Imagine Education with STF Executives

n November 2018, the STF Senior Administrative and Executive staff visited the U of R to deliver a Re-Imagine Education workshop to Instructor Julie Machnaik’s pre-intern students. ESS President Laura Bieber made the arrangements to have the workshop presented. STF Administrator Withman Jaigobin said that it isn’t typical for the STF to deliver the workshops, and especially not typical for the STF Executive and Administrative staff to deliver the workshop. This was a special occasion. STF staff presenting the workshop also included President Patrick Maze and Debbie Ward. Following the workshop, students were invited to a focus group with Communications Officer Shuana Niessen to talk about their visions for the future of education. STF staff demonstrated their interest in hearing from students about the future of Education. Students really appreciated the chance for their views of education to be heard.

Education Students’ Society President Laura Bieber speaks about her involvement in bringing the STF Re-Imagine session to the U of R.

STF President Patrick Maze explains the idea behind bringing the Re-Imagine Education initiative to Education students at the U of R.

Education Student’s Society Hosts Bowling Night

On Friday evening, the Education Student’s Society (ESS) hosted a Bowling Night for faculty, staff, and students. A large group turned out for the event to enjoy the food and fun provided. This was one of many events organized by our active ESS this year. Students have enjoyed pancake breakfasts, games, and galas, to name a few. These events are beneficial for bringing students from across disciplines together to get to know each other as well as allowing students to get to know the faculty and staff.
