The Learning Glass board allows you to record professional, student-friendly videos. You can pre-record lectures, create review videos or make ancillary course videos such as directions for key assignments, welcome videos or exam study tips.
The WSU Tri-Cities Equity Academy creates the opportunity for faculty to intentionally support students and decrease existing equity gaps. Faculty fellows engage in collaborative learning that uses disaggregated data to identify their own strengths, needs, and opportunities to intentionally serve Latinx, Black, Indigenous and first-generation students. The Equity Academy program implements recommendations from AASCU, the Center for Urban Education and Excelencia in Education.
The Undergraduate Learning Assistant program makes use of tutors/mentors whom we call learning assistants (LAs). LAs are students who have already successfully completed the course, receive training to work with students currently enrolled in the course, and work as tutors and mentors for their peers.
LAs work closely with the course faculty to support students currently enrolled in the class. LAs attend every class, so they will know what you are currently working on. The LAs may assist students with understanding class assignments, supporting group projects, and/or facilitating small group discussions. LAs may also connect with students outside the class by having regular meetings or drop-in times.
