The STEM Education Alliance invites you to attend and participate in a series of events focused on undergraduate learning assistants (ULAs) in STEM courses. The featured speaker will be Valerie Otero, Professor of Science Education, University Colorado Boulder, and Executive Director, Colorado Learning Assistant Program and International Learning Assistant Alliance.

Dr. Otero will give a research talk on Thursday, December 6th, followed by a poster session. We invite members of the MSU community to present posters on ULA programs, the use of ULAs in curricula, or research related to ULAs.
