College creates new role

One of Okanagan College’s longest-serving employees is now taking on the new role of director of learning and teaching.

Jayne Brooks has spent the last year in an interim basis developing the position, which includes providing leadership for the college’s Institute for Learning and Teaching.

“Research has proven that quality instruction has a lot more to do with building relationships within the classroom and getting students engaged than it has to do with top-down delivery or material,” she said.

“Learner-centred instruction is our focus and our aim is to enhance learning and teaching methods at Okanagan College to help students and employees reach their goals.”

She spent 20 years in the classroom teaching before becoming dean of the Okanagan School of Business, a position she held for 10 years.
