The Learning Resources Center: Concepts and Designs.
Ducote, Richard
The need to change the conventional library into a learning resource center is stressed. With the learning resources concept, instructors will be more prone to look upon media not with the idea of why it should be used in teaching, but how it can be used in order to do a more effective job of teaching. The effective use of media will necessarily be based on individual student need, and will permit the instructor to become the creative synthesizer of the learning process rather than the regimented dispenser of knowledge. The learning resource concept will more effectively permit the new teaching technique and approaches to reach all of the faculty. The provision of a one-stop total service will tend to create faculty interest and use. The very concept of learning resources will allow a college to take a far more effective management approach toward the use of media in order to insure the most effective use of personnel. The use of learning resources can eliminate the obstructions to the formulation of programs for effective instruction. The profiles of six colleges whose learning resources centers are included in this publication illustrate current practice. (MF)
