Resources for Students

The UGA Office of STEM Education is currently partnering with several departments across campus to develop Peer Learning Assistant models for implementation in select courses. This program aims to leverage the success of undergraduates who have completed the course in which they serve and wish to share their knowledge and abilities with their peers. Peer Learning Assistants provide valuable knowledge, insight, and learning strategies for the students they work with, while also furthering their own mastery of material they have already learned. Select sections of the following courses will particpate in the PLADawgs program during Spring 2020 semester.

Biological Sciences

Chemistry

College of Engineering

Mathematics

Physics and Astronomy

Pedagogy Training in UNIV 1204

In order to best prepare our Peer Learning Assistants, curricula and materials have developed to provide training in pedagogy, including strategies and techniques that can be used in mentoring environments. The content was created to serve all STEM disciplines.
