What Are We Learning About Learning Centers?
Gunselman, Marshall, Ed.
On March 3, 1971, a symposium was held at Oklahoma Christian College in order to discuss learning centers at the higher education level. For the purposes of the symposium, a learning center was defined as: (1) having a variety of audio and visual learning paths; (2) containing both print and nonprint resources; (3) affording opportunity for independent learning through audio and visual experiences; and (4) being integrated into the total curriculum. The topics of discussion contained in this volume are: (1) The learning center in the '70's; (2) Is the learning center concept valid for education in the '70's?; (3) What corporate doners expect of education in the '70's; (4) Integrating learning centers into the total school; (5) Evaluating learning center programs; (6) Building design for learning centers; (7) Preparing materials for learning centers; (8) Equipping learning centers; and (9) Determining cost of learning centers. Included are status reports of existing learning centers at nine colleges, junior colleges and universities. Learning centers with the goal of personalized instruction are seen as an important aspect of education in the future. (Document previously presented in RIE as ED 053 536.) (SJ)
