LSUA uses Academic Assistants (AAs) to enhance the student experience. They work closely with and under the direction of the faculty member teaching the course. These individuals hold Master's degrees and at least 18 graduate hours in the discipline they are assisting.
Having one or more AA in the class enables the professor to improve the course delivery. By having AAs handle things like email, discussion and assignment scoring; the professor will be able to focus on students in need, necessary course modifications, and course content. Different faculty utilize the Academic Assistants in different ways to ensure students get prompt attention and feedback and can progress through the course.
Requirements and Disciplines:
Master's degree that includes at least 18 credit hours in a specific discipline. Preference will be given to candidates with online teaching experience.
