The FIU Learning Assistant(LA) Program is pleased to open the faculty application for Learning Assistants (LAs) for Spring 2015 courses. 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. While each application can represent one instructor, instructor teams are encouraged to apply. All applications should be submitted here.
Review of Faculty Applications will begin on November 16, 2015 with notifications by December 7th, 2015. Applications submitted after November 16, 2015 will be considered subject to availability of funds. The call for Fall 2016 Faculty Applications for LAs will occur in February 2016.
