Cal Poly Chemistry Learning Assistant Program

A Learning Assistant (LA) is an upper-division student who helps facilitate general chemistry courses in our integrated lecture-lab studios. An LA is more than just a TA or a grader. Learning Assistants work with faculty to facilitate student discussion and problem solving while they receive training in working with students, and significant experience in teaching in a college classroom.

This experience is particularly useful for students who are considering teaching at any level as a career. In addition, most science graduate students, regardless of career path, will spend some of their graduate career as teaching assistants, and this experience will also be invaluable preparation.

Winter 2020 applications and interviews are due October 4th. Apply and find more information here.
