About Metro State University LA Program
The LA Program supports LAs, faculty and students by transforming courses so that they are more closely aligned with research based instructional strategies. Every LA Program around the globe incorporates the required pedagogy class for new LAs plus a weekly prep session and meeting between LAs and their faculty mentor. This program promotes the creation of effective learning spaces for all students in STEM and other disciplines.
Our program is based on the LA Model developed at CU Boulder. We are proud members of the LA International Alliance.
