Directed Learning Activities (DLAs)

Directed Learning Activities (DLAs) are faculty-designed exercises that provide students support in key writing and reading concepts. They require a short time limit to complete and require a follow-up session with a tutor after completion. When finished with a DLA, visit the Writing Center in-person or make an appointment to meet with a tutor.
