In the fall of 2020, a group of university students took part in a pilot program testing a new way of training undergraduate Learning Assistants (LAs). In a cross-disciplinary seminar facilitated by Dr. Josh Brummer, an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Mathematics department, the students engaged in a semester-long course aimed at improving their understanding of effective teaching and learning techniques. The goal was to better equip them to serve as LAs in their individual fields of study with a cross-disciplinary approach.
