Thank you for your interest in being a Physics Learning Assistant. Learning Assistants will work with faculty who are teaching PHYS1430 (Mechanics) by facilitating student learning in the classroom. LAs will also attend preparation sessions each week, and will be required to enroll in a physics course, PHYS4320 (Special Topics: Physics Pedagogy), taught by Dr. Eleanor Close. LAs commit between 5 and 10 hours a week to preparation and work in the classroom, with the option of more hours for grading and staffing homework help-sessions. LAs are paid at a rate of $10.00 per hour, and upon completion of all of their obligations will also receive a $300 stipend. Learning Assistants are different from Laboratory Instructors, because LAs assist faculty in the classroom. Students from any major are welcome to apply to be Learning Assistants. Applicants who are interested in the philosophy behind the Learning Assistant model can visit the page at
Colorado Learning Assistant Program
The deadline for application to the program is April 25 at 5:00 PM. Decisions regarding employment will be made by May 9.
