The goals of the Learning Assistant Program are:
1. To enhance the learning environment in ECoS classes that have chosen to use collaborative active learning activities as a part of the class curriculum.
2. To train students to serve as learning assistants. This training will take place largely through a pedagogy class that focuses on how learning works, and the strategies that LAs can use to facilitate learning.
3. To provide support to faculty who want to use LAs in their courses.
