Introduction to the Language Labs
The Digital Lab (SN-4030)
Guidelines to follow:
- Most of the following rules are very common sense. Overall try to be considerate of your fellow monitors and the students you are helping.
- The monitor station and the MLC should not be vacant for more than 5 minutes while students are in either lab. Students become frustrated if nobody is there to help them.
- Monitors may be required to conduct one or more conversation classes per week. The director will notify monitors and post schedules as required.
- Monitors must sign in on the timetable pinned to the bulletin board in the monitor station/MLC in order to be paid. You must sign in by the end of Friday for a given week.
- Monitors must keep the monitor station clean.
- Off-duty monitors and students are discouraged from hanging about in the monitor station for the purpose of socializing. Working together is no problem.
- Monitors should not do their assignments for their classes, write personal letters or read novels during their shifts.
Registration of Students in the Digital Lab
Each time students arrive in the digital lab, they must sign in to the online system we were only using in the MLC before. If they registered late, they may not have an account yet. In this case, have them fill out the temporary attendance clipboard, which you will then enter into the admin side of the sign-in system.
How to do an Introduction to the Digital Lab
- Once all students are seated, address the group as a whole
(even those students who have used the lab before) and give them
the information found on the handout marked "How to do an LRC
orientation"; available in the monitor station on the black copy
