  • Learning Assistant Program (LAP)
    LAP offers support to courses by providing Learning Assistants—students who are prepared to provide support for student learning in an interactive classroom environment. LAs help facilitate active learning and collaborative instruction in lecture, recitation, studio, and/or lab. LAs guide or coach students by sharing skills and knowledge they have already learned from taking the course.  In addition, they help identify and address student difficulties with course content.  
  • Academic Coaching
    Academic Coaching provides students with the chance to work individually with professional staff members to enhance their academic skills, gain confidence, discover motivation, and improve performance.  Students usually schedule a 45-60 minute meeting every two weeks or once a month, depending on their individual need.  Academic coaching is available year-round through scheduled appointments.  
  • Recitations
    Recitations are optional sessions in support of for-credit courses, and are non-credit and non-billable—meaning that no tuition/fees are assessed, nor does they affect financial aid/scholarships.  Recitations are designed to provide time for application of conceptual knowledge and extension of instruction that occurs in lecture through problem-solving or discussion.  AE utilizes Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTAs) who support the following courses:  AE 2010, AE 2220, and AE 3030.
