LAA eSeries: LA Model Foundations

This series of virtual workshops is intended for those unfamiliar with the LA model or who may be interested in starting an LA program. Those who are familiar with the LA model are welcome to participate, and it can be helpful to bring a colleague with you who is new to the model.

There are two pathways, one for faculty and one for LA program coordinators/directors.  After completing the series, participants will be well-versed in the essential elements of the LA model, including the weekly prep sessions and pedagogy course, will understand the resources and benefits of being a member of the LA Alliance, and will have a strong foundation to start, develop, and grow their own LA program. See below the sessions that are included in each strand and where to find more information.
