Supplemental Learning Assistance

If you need to complete a DLA online, follow these simple instructions. SLA is offered in three forms:

  • Workshops - 60-minute interactive sessions led by an Instructional Specialist. Appointments recommended as space is limited.
  • Directed Study Groups (DSG) – 60-minute interactive sessions led by a tutor. Appointments recommended as space is limited
  • Directed Learning Activities (DLA) - 60-minute individually-completed activities that include a brief consultation with an Instructor or Tutor; no appointment necessary.

Please be sure to bring your student ID number to the Success Center.

Workshops & Directed Study Groups

The LBCC Success Centers provide workshops and directed study groups in a small group setting to help students learn class material that is typically more challenging. Students leave workshops and DSGs more confident in their understanding and ability to apply trickier course content.

Our instructors and tutors deliver the material in an engaging and student-centered manner, whenever possible giving students a more hands-on experience.

The following classes offer Workshops or Directed Study Groups:

  • ENGLISH: ENGL 105, 801A 
  • MATH 110, 130, 140
  • VOCATIONAL NURSING: VN 215, 220, 230
  • FOOD & NUTRITION (Spring Semester only)
  • REGISTERED NURSING: ADN 12B
  • READING: 82, 883AX
  • LIFE SCIENCE: ANAT 41, PHYSI 1

Directed Learning Activities

Directed Learning Activities are individual activities that are assigned by your class instructor and completed in the Success Center.  Students work independently to complete the assigned DLAs, which are typically 60-90 minutes in length, and at the completion of the DLA, the student meets with a Success Center staff member for a follow-up session.

The following classes offer Directed Learning Activities:

  • ART 1, 2
  • ALLIED HEALTH: AH 60, AH 220
  • CHEMISTRY: CHEM 2
