Interesting and essential lab, in an exciting and pro-active college.
Pros: meeting lots of interesting people was exciting.
Cons: it was only part-time work, and i would have liked to have been there longer.
The language lab in Algonquin College is an organized learning zone, where foreign students come to learn English as a second language.
My job included welcoming the students, and teachers, into the lab each day, directing them to the allocated area where they were to work. I worked as part of a team ensuring that each area was organized, clean and – more... tidy, and ready for use each morning. I assisted students in the use of the software, and answered any questions, or solved any problems they may have had whilst using the facilities in the lab.
Teachers used our facilities to obtain textbooks on a daily basis, and the library was maintained by using a catalog system, to keep track of the books.
I enjoy interaction with people, and found this to be extremely rewarding work. – less
