Quick Start Program

The fall 2020 Learning Assistant Quick Start Program will take place during the week before courses start: August 17th-21st, 2020. 

Because of COVID-19 and the many academic changes that have (and will) taken place, this program will focus more on how teaching and learning assistants can support faculty in hybrid situations (e.g. managing the Zoom chat or other collaborative/interactive tools while the instructor lectures, etc.). 

If you would like to sign up for the program or have any questions, please contact Sarah Grace, sgrace@email.arizona.edu

This is a non-credit course offered entirely online with synchronous and asynchronous components.
