The Rutgers Learning Centers offer training programs for students working in academic leadership positions, such as tutors and study group leaders. Our training programs are founded on research-based practices and can be tailored to fit the needs of your staff.
We offer free modular (1-2 hour), half-day, or full-day trainings that are tailored to your program's unique needs.
We also teach a pedagogy course that is required of Learning Assistants. If you are interested in learning more about this course, please email Stacey Blackwell.
