Directed Learning Activities (DLA)

Directed Learning Activities (DLA) are individual, self-paced activities available in the WRC (in AT309) or printable from this webpage (see below).  Instructors may recommend specific DLAs, students print out, complete on their own, and then review with a tutor.  Students review the DLA with a tutor by signing up for drop-in tutoring during weeks 2 through 9 of the quarter. Students can also bring a classmate or two to the drop-in tutoring sessions to review the DLA as a small group with a tutor!
