Through the Technology Learning Assistant (TLA) program, faculty members at University Park may apply to have a technology-savvy student provide one-on-one assistance on a range of technology-related teaching, learning, and class management topics. Students may provide tutoring in PowerPoint, Excel, file management, e-mail, web page development, electronic grade book software, and other tools and applications. TLAs are also qualified to demonstrate the use of Penn State services such as ANGEL, iTunes U podcasting, Adobe Connect desktop videoconferencing, ITS Streaming Services, and the Blogs at Penn State.
Faculty requests are now being accepted for TLA placement during the spring 2012 semester. To make a request and to learn more about the TLA program visit http://tlt.its.psu.edu/enrichment/technology-learning-assistants/.
