The PhysTEC project co-sponsored its third workshop focusing on the University of Colorado's Learning Assistant program. The Learning Assistant program is a highly supported peer teaching experience that has been shown to improve students' learning and attitudes toward science in undergraduate lecture classes and recruit talented science and math students into teaching careers. The workshop was held on November 2-3, 2011. The workshop was free for representatives of PhysTEC Member Institutions (PTEC members). If your institution is not a member, learn how to join for free.
Co-sponsored by PhysTEC and
