Learning Assistant Program at Boston University
An introduction to the Learning Assistant Program
Welcome to the Learning Assistant Program! The Learning Assistant (LA) Program here at Boston University helps improve undergraduate education by training students in teaching methods and practices. LAs help their fellow undergraduates by providing them with knowledgeable and experienced peer educators, and LAs enhance their own learning abilities through their understanding of pedagogy.
Our LAs currently assist faculty and graduate student teaching fellows in courses in several different departments in science and engineering, and the program is due to expand within current departments and into new departments in the near future.
