LA Mentoring Success Story

The best part of having LAs is the ability to reach each student in class and provide them with daily feedback. The class is now designed with an important active learning component which highly benefits the students.

UHM Instructor, Math 203

With all the lessons from the pedagogy work, I have become more conscious of the techniques I have learned and my actions. Overall, I feel this change in the LA system for me will help me to grow with the greater work and challenges there are now than before.
