Student Learning Assistants (SLA) are a team of multi-cultural senior students (2nd and 3rd year) whose role is to assist lecturers and tutors in IFP 1st and 2nd Yearclassrooms. Often, they work with small groups within the class and, alongside the lecturers, help the students complete specific tasks. The SLAs have excellent academic records and are recommended by their Lecturers and Campus Programme Coordinators as having a mature attitude towards independent learning. Students who are successfully selected to be SLAs undergo initial training and are closely monitored during their participation in the scheme.
The SLA Scheme is an invaluable resource for our teachers and students. The peer-to-peer support is a hallmark of Middlesex University’s strategic goal of promoting ‘Knowledge through Action’ and embodies core values such as learning through collaboration.
