FASS Remote Instructional Technology Support Team

The FASS Dean’s Office has established a team of 6 P/T research assistants to provide support with remote teaching technology to FASS instructors, including continuing faculty, term, and sessional instructors. The goal of this team is to provide responsive, consistent, and quality support for remote instructional technology to all FASS instructors.

These RAs bring a broad set of skills & knowledge on the suite of remote technology used at SFU along with varied departmental experience, including Humanities, International Studies, Economics, Sociology/Anthropology, Criminology, History, and Political Science. Team members have also offered to introduce themselves ‘in-person’ at a meeting with your department.
