Sharing from Former Peer Assistants

    It has been a nice experience working in Learning Commons as it was very different from my past working environment that I used to teach piano one-on-one at a music centre. My students and their parents are the only people I needed to cater to. However, Learning Commons allows me to interact with a lot of users from different backgrounds, including students, visitors, teachers and staffs from different departments. Working at Learning Commons is a distinctive learning-working experience. I learnt different communication ways of handling users’ enquiries and the importance of providing solutions to them. I have to be flexible and think independently while dealing with their questions. Overall, it was such a rewarding experience. I want to thank the staffs again for teaching, helping and caring me a lot throughout the programme.

    Working in the Learning Commons is an interesting and crucial experience. As a peer assistant, I have worked for nearly two years and gained many clerical and communicative experiences. I am happy to handle new challenging tasks, such as facilitating the promotion work of the Learning Commons, providing ideas on amenities checking and furniture purchasing. Throughout the programme, I feel more confident on handling projects and solving enquires from supervisors or customers in my future workplace.
