Supported Learning Groups (SLGs)

Supported Learning Groups (SLGs) are free online peer-led study groups held on a weekly basis to help students taking historically challenging courses. The sessions are designed for everyone in the class regardless of your comfort with the material, and will give you the opportunity to

  • Gain a more in-depth understanding of the course content
  • Meet students from your class in a small online group format
  • Test your knowledge prior to tests and exams
  • Leave with something to review later

If your course has an associated SLG session, you will be able to access it through your class's CourseLink site.
