DATE: Wednesday, March 22, 2023
TIME: 11:30am – 12:30pm
LOCATION: Summit Centre (Bby Campus Library, room 213)
Journey Mapping is defined as:
General and analyis method that helps us understand the interactions that an individual has with a process, service or organization from the perspective of that individual.
From Oct-Dec, 2022, a journey mapping project was carried out with 9 EAL (English as an Additional Language) students and 4 EAL alumni from BCIT’s CIT and CST programs. Students and alumni were interviewed and then interview data was used to create individual journey maps. These were then analyzed to discover significant challenges and opportunities for interviewees in their goal of successfully transitioning from school to the workplace. Some of the key findings revolve around opportunities for experiential learning, guidance for self-study, and connecting to support services.
This workshop will present the journey mapping process, share examples from the actual journey maps, and elaborate on the key findings. Potentially, the proess could be replicated in other departments findings.
Since 1991, David has taught English as an Additional Language in Canada, Japan, and Qatar.

This talk is open to all members of the BCIT community. A light lunch is provided.
