Directed Learning Activities (DLAs) & Chemistry Modules

Directed Learning Activities & Chemistry Modules

Directed Learning Activities and Chemistry Modules provide supplemental support for students looking to gain additional understanding of key concepts through practice grounded in contextual learning. With support and guidance from English, Math, and Chemistry faculty, tutors in the LRC Tutoring Center now facilitate Directed Learning Activities and Chemistry Modules for students of all levels.

Logistics for Students

  • By registering for TU 300, students have access and can complete DLAs/Modules. Once a DLA/Module is completed, tutors are available to review it with the student. 
  • DLAs and Modules should take 45 minutes to complete.
  • DLAs will be graded credit/no credit, based on the DLA rubric which will be reviewed by both the tutor and student.
  • Electronic DLA Credit Forms must be completed by the tutor and student, and emailed to the student and instructor.
