Careers at CCNM

Teaching Assistants – Year One Enhanced Curriculum (CCNM - Boucher Campus)

Do you want to work for an organization where people care about each other? We are that organization!
The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) Boucher Campus is seeking Teaching Assistants (TAs) for the Enhanced Curriculum (EC) Year One. The EC shifts emphasis from traditional lecture-based programming to a more active, contextual, and self-regulated learning experience. Tutorials and practicums play a prominent role in the EC, and accordingly, TAs are pivotal to our programmatic success.
Working closely with course instructors and collaboratively within a highly integrated educational team, the TA implements curriculum in alignment with the EC's key curricular design principles. In accordance, the TA takes learners beyond the simple mastery of facts; they facilitate learning for understanding. See Appendix A for the EC design principles and course descriptions.
