Introducing the STEM Collaborative Learning Center (CLC)!

The UCLA Library, in partnership with UCLA CEILS (Center for Education Innovation and Learning in the Sciences) and the Undergraduate Research Center - Sciences PEERS program, is pleased to introduce the new STEM Collaborative Learning Center (CLC)!

The new STEM CLC is located in the Science and Engineering Library's Research Commons, at 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. The STEM CLC will host both the Undergraduate Learning Assistants Program and PEERS 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.

For more questions about the STEM CLC, feel free to contact Courtney Hoffner, library project lead for this program.
