Introducing the new STEM Collaborative Learning Center!

The STEM Collaborative Learning Center (CLC) is a pilot program being implemented by UCLA Library, the undergraduate Learning Assistant (LA) program, and PEERSIt is located in the Boelter Science & Engineering Library in 8251 Boelter Hall.

The main mission is to provide a central space to foster collaborative learning among STEM majors, while introducing students to library facilities and research resources. In this pilot, the space will be used for a combination of drop-in collaborative learning and facilitated workshops. Here is a tentative schedule for the Fall 2017 quarter (subject to change during the first few weeks). Drop-ins are welcome to all activities, except the PEERS workshops.

“LA Weekly Workshops” are where LAs provide sets of instructor-approved questions to groups of 10-35 students. LAs circulate and provide guidance as students get to collaboratively work through these. This is a great opportunity to build problem-solving skills and conceptual understanding by talking through things with peers and LAs.
