Are there any opportunities to contribute to the programming or design side of ACORN?

Yes! The ACORN User Experience Design Team works with many students at U of T from various academic backgrounds to help make ACORN and other online tools better. To become a part of the ACORN Student Advisory Team, learn more and sign up on this website if you are interested.

We often hold usability tests in our User Experience Design lab at 215 Huron street. During these 30-45 minute tests, we invite U of T students to come in and test new designs and features that are in the works. It’s an opportunity for you to see what the ACORN team is currently working on, learn about our UX design process, and it also gives us a chance to meet you and find out how we can improve ACORN to make your student life easier. If you participate in 5 sessions, you’ll also get a credit on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR)!

We do hire work-study students from time to time, and when positions are available you can find them on the Career Learning Network (CLN).
