Learning Assistant Program (LAP)

A Learning Assistant Program supports Learning Assistants, faculty, and students by transforming courses so that they are more closely aligned with research-based instructional strategies.

The UA Little Rock Learning Assistant Program is based on the national learning assistant model developed at the University of Colorado Boulder. More information on learning assistant programs can be found on the Learning Assistant Alliance site.

At UA Little Rock, our goal is to train undergraduates how to learn, while giving them the tools to help other students learn. To do this, Learning Assistants (LAs) take a course on the science of learning where they learn all about evidence-based instruction while building a community dedicated to making learning more equitable for all. LAs work with faculty to design, implement, and in some cases assess the impact of active learning instruction in both online and face-to-face courses.
