What are Weekly Learning Roundtables?

Weekly Learning Roundtables provide students with the opportunity to study regularly with dedicated peers enrolled in the same course as they work together to master course content.

During Weekly Learning Roundtable meetings, students work together with each other to answer questions and clarify course concepts. A facilitating subject tutor is present at all Weekly Learning Roundtable meetings to help assist working groups as needed. Through studying collaboratively, students improve their own understanding of course material while helping their peers do the same in a supportive environment.

Sign-up for Weekly Learning Roundtables opens 14 days in advance of the present date. Each weekly group is limited to 10 students, and sign-up is on a first-come basis. To reserve your spot, elect "Schedule an Appointment" to log into our online scheduler. After selecting the "Tutoring Group Schedule (Fall 2020)" option, look for “Roundtable [Course Number] with [tutor]" within the next 14 days. 

See our Guide to Online Appointments for how to access the Zoom meeting for your group. Shortly before your roundtable begins, you will receive an email from one of our clerks with an intake form to be completed before or at the top of the meeting.

Cancellations: Should you need to cancel your Weekly Learning Roundtable reservation, you must do so 4 or more hours in advance of the beginning of the group meeting. Failure to do so will count as a no-show; 3 no-shows (unique to each the 1-on-1 and Group schedules) will result in a disabled account for the remainder of the semester. Students whose accounts have been disabled may only use Tutoring Services on a walk-in basis.

Don't see any Weekly Learning Roundtable openings? Check out our Waiting List feature! To join the waitlist, just click on the "Waiting List" link in the bottom right corner of the day you need an appointment and sign up. You'll be notified if a cancellation matches your specified parameters. (You must then still log in and reserve the appointment yourself on a first-come basis.)
