For her always looking for new ways to improve services and engage students, Victoria (Vicky) Wylie is a Mohawk College Everyday Hero. Vicky uses a wide range of technology and platforms to improve the services offered through the Learning Support Centre. One example of this is the virtual Escape Rooms Vicky created to promote study skills. The escape rooms were very successful earning rave reviews from students and even getting a mention in a Maclean’s Magazine article on how Canadian colleges and universities were using technology during the pandemic. Each semester, more than 6,000 students use Vicky’s Study Smart curriculum, which is embedded in the college’s e-learning platform, MyCanvas. Always the first one to take on a new project or to offer support to a colleague or student, Vicky is a true leader and someone her colleagues depend on. She is tireless in her commitment to excellence and we are proud to have her on the team.
