Overview of LA Program

Main Content

The Eberly College of Science Learning Assistant Program is supported by the Pennsylvania State University Center for Excellence in Science Education (CESE). The CESE identified the need for peer facilitation in classrooms where faculty were trying to engage students in collaborative active learning activities and, in response, catalyzed the Learning Assistant (LA) Initiative in the Fall of 2011. The LA initiative encompasses a group of faculty and motivated students who all have the common goal of enhancing the learning experience in science and math classes.
