Learning Assistant Program

The Learning Assistant (LA) program provides undergraduates with the opportunity to experience the reward of teaching, develop skills to engage in the challenges of effective instruction, and deepen their content knowledge. At the same time, they serve a critical role as dedicated and skilled facilitators in the classroom, thus easing the transition to active learning. FIU hosts the nation’s largest LA program, with 330 LAs serving across 9 STEM departments, impacting over 10,000 student enrollments.
