About MSU Denver 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-  Essential Elements:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Av1IH8vSlZQ

Congratulations to the MSU LA Program!   We received an award from NSF on the proposal: Learning Assistant Transfer Pathway: Fostering STEM Connections – IUSE: Hispanic Serving Institutions

Testimonial from CCD LA

Being an LA this semester and every semester has been an honor and also an awesome learning experience as well. It opened up the doors to get to know and establish a great relationship with some great educated people along the way.

Testimonial from LA

I also wanted to thank you both for your help this semester, your positive emails and messages have sometimes been the highlight of my day.

Testimonial from LA Faculty Mentor

I couldn’t have done the switch to virtual labs without my brilliant LAs.

Testimonials from LA Faculty Mentor

LAs are a presence in the learning process who are there for the students and the students know that.

My LAs transformed me, my classroom, and the way I teach.

I hope we established a learning community where you feel comfortable and supported. There will be times you might feel exhausted, imposter, and stressed, but from what I observed, you are going to continue to grow as students, as mentors, and as an educator. You might not realize it initially, but you are changing the lives of so many students. LAs rock!
