A Directed Learning Activity (DLA) is an
exercise developed by a faculty member that
students complete in a tutoring center. A DLA
allows the students to gain more practice on a
concept or skill introduced in class.
A DLA differs from a homework assignment
in that a DLA 1) usually has a short time limit
– 30 to 45 minutes, and 2) requires a follow-up
session with a tutor after completion.
