to the SFU OLC by sharing your stories and advice with our community.

Publish with us to build your portfolio, and contribute to your online presence. Whether you are volunteering for an international organization, getting ready to apply for your first or last Co-op work term, looking for professional development opportunities, or if you are already a seasoned industry insider... your contributions belong on Our Learning Community! We welcome submissions from SFU students, staff, alumni and employers.

Are you ...

  • participating in a course, experiential learning program (i.e. Co-op, Study Abroad), initiative, or peer education program (i.e. Health Peers, Career Peers)? Please follow the content submission instructions and approval process established by your supervisor. This is called an indirect submission because your submission needs to be approved before it is forwarded to the OLC for publication.
  • a first time, direct contributor? Figure out which storytelling tool that you want to use and what to tell a story about. Create your story and edit it using our writing tips before preparing your content for submitting to the OLC. You can pitch your idea to the editorial team if you would like feedback before creating your story or email us for additional support.
  • a returning contributor and ready to directly submit? You can jump ahead and take a look at the Submission Guidelines before you submit your content.

Did you know we have five different storytelling tools for you to choose from when sharing your story? It’s true! Take a look to see if you want to write a blog, record a podcast, develop a video, tell a short visual SFU Story, or share your experiential learning journey with our Experience tool.
