The Peer Learning Lab is a free, collaborative peer-to-peer learning service available to all Wartburg students to help improve their writing, speaking, mathematical, reading, and critical thinking skills. Our specially-trained peer consultants can help you at any stage of the process.
For the time being, both Math Lab and the WRSL have moved online. The same wonderful, specially-trained peer consultants are sitting by their computers at home, waiting for you to join them.
If you are in a math course, you should have received an email invitation to join Discord (and download the app) – there you will find a chatroom for each specific math course, with the option to also video chat. The chatrooms are open 24/7, so we strongly encourage that you also use this space to collaborate with your classmates. The math lab consultants will be online Monday-Thursdays 1-4 p.m. to help you find strategies and problem-solve!
For the WRSL, you will still schedule through the link below. Your 30-minute appointment will be via Zoom. You will receive an email invite for Zoom from your WRSL consultant, and at the time of your appointment you simply meet up via Zoom. The WRSL consultant will ask you to share your screen, so that they can see the paper you are working on. From there, it proceeds like a regular WRSL appointment. We look forward to seeing you in Zoom!
