The FIU Learning Assistant(LA) Program is pleased to open the faculty application for Learning Assistants (LAs) for Fall and Summer 2016 . Learning Assistants are talented undergraduates that assist the implementation of evidence- based active learning in STEM courses in order to improve student learning. The Provost’s LA Initiative provides strategic funding to increase the use of LAs to support adoption of evidence-based instructional practices on campus and improve student success. The STEM Transformation Institute has been charged with administrative operations of the Initiative.
Please fill out one application for each course that is requesting LAs in Summer and/or Fall separately. While each application can represent one instructor, instructor teams are encouraged to apply. All applications should be submitted via this link.
Review of Faculty Applications will begin on March 4th, 2016 with notifications by April 5th, 2016. Applications submitted after March 4th, 2016 will be considered subject to availability of funds. The call for Spring 2017 Faculty Applications for LAs will occur in October 2016.
