Supported Learning Groups (SLGs)

SLGs are free group study sessions led by upper year undergraduate students. SLGs are a fun and effective way to study! All students in the course are welcome to participate in any SLG session. SLGs are flexible - You can attend regularly or drop in occasionally.

Why participate in SLGs?

  1. To meet students in your class.
  2. To learn strategies to study more effectively.
  3. To check your understanding, get comfortable with terminology, and gain confidence.
  4. To learn about campus resources.

Is my SLG virtual or in person?

Depending on the course, your SLG may be offered virtually, face to face, or both formats. In-person sessions are held at McLaughlin Library, and virtual sessions are on CourseLink. Please check the schedule below to learn whether your session is face to face or virtual.

We encourage you to register for Supported Learning Groups on CourseLink. This resource will allow you to attend virtual SLGs, download materials from any SLG session, get details about session changes & extra sessions for in-person and virtual SLGs, and more. Instructions to join the SLG CourseLink are available below.

How do I register for virtual SLGs?
