LEAP seeking student applicants

The UAF Faculty Accelerator and eCampus are seeking faculty and student applicants to participate in the Learner Experience Advocacy Program for the 2022 fall semester. In this semester-long program, students are trained in course design and feedback strategies, then partnered with participating instructors to observe and share feedback on their online courses.

LEAP student advocates can expect to spend three to four hours per week on the program after an intensive week of training. Advocates who complete the program are eligible for a $1,500 scholarship. Returning students are eligible for a $2,000 scholarship.

The goals of the program are to meaningfully improve the learner experience at UAF, build community among instructors and student leaders, and provide professional development to students and instructors alike. Student advocates are embedded (not enrolled) in the courses they review and they focus their feedback on established course design areas. The program facilitates regular meetings between student advocates and instructors.
