The Life Sciences Core Peer Learning Facilitator Program has been no longer be offered effective Fall 2018.
With the expansion of the Learning Assistant Program (LAs) across many courses, the Life Sciences Core will focus resources toward supporting the LA program and its capacity to support a large number of Learning Assistants and all enrolled students.
The Peer Learning Facilitator Program complemented this program in the past when many courses and faculty were unable to support Learning Assistants in the classroom. However, now that the Learning Assistant Program has been incorporated in many of the Life Sciences Core courses, the department has decided that more students can be served through this program, thus providing educational services in the most equitable way possible.
We want to celebrate all that the Peer Learning Facilitator Program accomplished over the years, and thank everyone that took part as a faculty member, supervisor, coordinator or PLF. This program provided a valuable service and truly enhanced the undergraduate learning experience!
