I love having the LAs, and they are helping with coming up with the activities. I’ve said it many times, but having LAs truly transformed my teaching. This morning driving in, I was thinking about how they make the class very scalable. With enough LAs, even a larger class wouldn’t feel like too much burden nor would it be a reduction in quality. I really think that LAs are the way we can accommodate big classes without having to resort to online, which having done it, was awful. What’s more, having the LAs made me rethink how to structure class with having activities. Walking around the class during activity time is my favorite part of class. I can get real-time feedback on what they understand and what they struggle with. It’s so much better than clicker questions because you can ask the students questions and figure out why they might not be understanding a particular concept.
