Tutoring

Upcoming Tutoring Workshops

Computer Science 2440 | February 10th from 4:00-5:00pm | Room 143 D.D. Dougherty

The workshop will explore the behind-the-scenes of Java development, including the process of taking a Java project from language code to compiled bytecode for execution by Java's Virtual Machine. The workshop will also discuss IDEs (Integrated Development Environments), explaining how these applications function and what specific tools they provide to make project development easier. While focusing on Java and Eclipse, the concepts in this workshop extend to other languages and IDE platforms, making the information very helpful for students moving forward to more rigorous courses.

LEAD Weekly Study Sessions

LEAD (Learning Enhancement Across Disciplines) is a supplemental instruction program that supports student learning in Chemistry and Physics through regularly scheduled, group study sessions. Sessions are facilitated by peer educators who utilize collaborative activities to ensure peer-to-peer interaction in small groups. Peer educators are assigned to work specifically with one section of the course and tailor their weekly study sessions to the material presented in class.
