PEER LEARNING LAB

The Peer Learning Lab (PLL), located in Library 204, 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. Both the Math Lab and the WRSL offer both in-person and Zoom appointments.

There is a limit to the number of people we can host in the PLL, and for now, we are unable to have walk-in appointments. If you chose to have your appointment via Zoom, you will receive a Zoom meeting invite from your WRSL/Math Lab consultant.
