The Colorado Learning Assistant (LA) Model

Founded at CU Boulder in 2001, the Learning Assistant (LA) model catalyzes change in faculty, departments, and institutional practices by providing infrastructure to support and reward instructional innovation. Learning Assistants are undergraduate students who, through the guidance of weekly preparation sessions and a pedagogy course, facilitate discussions among groups of students in a variety of classroom settings that encourage active engagement.  LAs play a variety of roles including forming relationships with students, providing guidance on how to manage the large amount of material in a course, providing study tips and tips for being successful, and helping motivate students. The program is also of great benefit to LAs, both in developing content mastery and leadership skills.
