Collaborative learning provides an opportunity to "self-test" one's understanding of a concept. One of the best ways to structure this practice is via group tutoring. This combines the benefits of STUDYING IN GROUPS with the supportive guidance of a tutor being part of the process.
The Learning Commons offers group tutoring experiences in a few different ways:
- Some of the tutors elect to work with more than one student during any of their tutoring appointments. When you visit our ONLINE SCHEDULING SYSTEM to make an appointment, you can see below a tutor's name if he or she allows a group (for example, "Allows 3 member groups"). If a student has already reserved one of the tutoring slots for the group, it will indicate this when you hover over the appointment time, and it will ask if you would like to also have one of the group appointments still available.
- During each semester, we offer a variety of groups based upon demand. Information about groups each semester will be listed below.
