Although the LA experience is somewhat different for each discipline, the experience for all LAs involves three related activities:
- Content: LAs meet weekly with their faculty instructor to plan for the upcoming week, reflect on the previous week, and analyze assessment data
- Practice: LAs facilitate collaboration among learning teams by formatively assessing student understanding and asking guiding questions
- Pedagogy: LAs from all departments attend a special Mathematics and Science Education Seminar where they reflect on their own teaching and learning and make connections to relevant education literature
