Structured Learning Assistance

Structured Learning Assistance (SLA) is an exciting and unique program that combines the idea of “what to learn” with “how to learn” through weekly sessions led by a fellow student who has already demonstrated the ability to perform well in class.

The K101 recitations are mandatory 75-minute active-learning sessions in which students in the course will practice doing challenging problems collaboratively. The recitation leaders are IUPUI science majors who have recently completed and succeeded in K101.

  • Through collaborative efforts, mentors implement study skills to help students master course content and form study teams.
  • Students acquire knowledge and skills and develop characteristics necessary for future academic success.
  • Students are given content-specific background information to assist them in making connections to the homework and lectures of the class.
