  • Evidence of Success | LA Program
    Caldwell received the Knowles Teaching Fellowship New Downloadable Documents LA Orientation Spring 2012 Evidence of Success Growth The LA program has grown throughout the CU Boulder campus and throughout the nation It was initially developed at CU Boulder in 2003 as an effort to recruit more talented math and science majors into careers in teaching Fifty three 53 students have been recruited to careers in teaching which represents approximately 12 of the students who serve as LAs Forty two 42 of the students recruited to teacher certification programs were Noyce Fellows This number is very large nationally especially because the program focuses on departments traditionally under represented in the Secondary Science Certification program including MCDB Physics Chemistry and Biochemistry APS Applied Math Each year the program impacts over 8 000 undergraduate students at CU Boulder and the number keeps growing The Figure above shows the number of LAs recruited to teaching careers from each major through April 2008 Note that 17 physics astrophysics majors have enrolled in certification programs as LAs Success The first graph shows the learning gains from a traditional lecture and recitations to that of an interactive engagement with Learning Assistants and Tutorials The subsequent graphs show
