Service Update:

During the construction on the 4th floor of the MacOdrum Library, our Learning Support Sessions have temporarily relocated to room 810 Dunton Tower.

Learning Support Sessions are available to any Carleton student who is looking to develop skills that can help them achieve academic success. Learning Support Sessions is a person-centred service focused on fostering effective learning strategies. Each session with a Peer Learning Assistant (PLA) is unique and focused on the individual’s specific strengths and challenges.

PLAs will help students to identify areas of growth, set goals, and create an individualized plan to achieve success. PLAs are trained to share effective strategies with students that they can use in any course at any level. Common session topics include:

  • Time Management
  • Managing procrastination
  • Academic Reading
  • Note-Taking
  • Memory and concentration
  • Exam Preparation

Who Provides Learning Support?

Learning support sessions are provided by PLAs and can be focused on one skill or many. These sessions are intended to be student-focused and help students strengthen their skills and develop new active learning strategies.

PLAs are also very knowledgeable about campus services, can suggest referrals for additional support both within CSAS and across campus, and help students develop an action plan to ensure they are meeting their academic goals.
