According to the Chaffey Success Centers' website, Directed Learning Activities are:
Directed Learning Activities (DLA's) are subject-specific exercises and activities that consist of an independent portion that takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete and a follow-up session with a tutor that lasts approximately 15-30 minutes depending on the activity.
DLA's and workshops specifically designed in response to the Student Success Summer Institute are being developed collaboratively by the Success Center Instructional Specialists and content faculty. Check back here later in the summer for more information about these valuable services to supplement your teaching.
