Learning Assistant Application
Learning Assistants (LA) work with students in college classrooms to help them understand course content. They help students learn because they recently took the course themselves and remember where struggles arose and are willing to help others learn with no connections to grading/evaluation.
A Learning Assistant is a peer who understands the content and promotes learning by facilitating discussions, asking thoughtful questions, addressing misconceptions, and fostering a collaborative environment in the classroom.
All NEW Learning Assistants must attend the mandatory pedagogy seminar Tuesday 5-5:50 PM.
All returning LAs are encouraged to sign up for the seminar but do not need to attend the seminar each week.
Please address any questions and concerns to Josh.Herring@UMontana.edu.
