PHYS1211 - Dr. Andrei Galiautdinov
Beginning in Spring 2017, Dr. G will be implementing Peer Learning Assistants in his PHYS1211 course. Four PLAs support approximately 100 students. Thursday classes are devoted to conceptual lectures. On Tuesdays, the PLAs lead problem solving activities that they also help create. Groups of three work together during class time with the support of their PLAs and Dr. G. In addition to supporting these class meetings, PLAs are also enrolled in FCID 3100, a weekly, one-hour course designed to enhance the mentoring skills of Peer Learning Assistants.
Sample materials created by Dr. G. and his PLAs can be found HERE.
