LAs are a great resource for eLearning settings. Ideally, each team of LA(s) and faculty would work together to think about best practices to support the students in your classes. We know faculty have a lot on their plates right now, as we make the transition to eLearning.
LAs can serve as a part of the instructional team to support eLearning. They can lead breakout sessions, support synchronous, asynchronous, and hybrid environments and hold virtual office hours. They can support faculty in learning skills for using etools and support students as they adapt.
We offer a few ideas from the Learning Assistant Alliance and its members. While this guide focuses more explicitly on using LAs in eLearning formats, there are a number of other resources and clearinghouses for more general ways to engage effectively in eLearning environments.
Check in with your LAs to see how they are doing and how things have shifted for them. This will also give you insights into how your students are doing.
Your LAs can provide valuable feedback.
Make a plan. You have a team!
Continue to hold weekly preparation meetings (virtually) with your LAs.
