Learning Assistants and STEM at CU Denver
The mission of the CU Denver Learning Assistant program is to support student learning, satisfaction, and retention in Science, Technology, Mathematics, and Engineering (STEM) courses, particularly those courses that are large enrollment, critical for success in a degree program, and/or have historically low retention rates. The goals of the program are to support:
Curriculum & Course Transformation: to improve the quality of STEM education for all undergraduates.
Institutional Change: to engage faculty in the transformation of undergraduate STEM courses and in the recruitment and preparation of future STEM educators.
Discipline-Based Education Research: to transform the culture in university STEM departments to value research-based teaching
Teacher Recruitment & Preparation: to recruit and prepare talented STEM majors for careers in teaching.
Grow Student Leaders: to help Learning Assistant develop peer leadership skills
