College Learning Skills: Frontierland Origins of the Learning Assistance Center.
Enright, Gwyn
When the learning assistence center's origins and development, beginning with the yen to be scientific and continuing to the rewards of combining technology with humanism, are considered in retrospect, they show the evolution and the revolutionary realignment of many very basic educational concepts. The historical irony of the learning assistance center is that, while it embodies most of the educational philosphies theorized since 1900, it works actively for futuristic education. Its present status reflects the diverse range of its origins and the snowball sequence of its development. The next stage in the history of the learning assistance center may well be its systematic integration into the campus as a whole, with the center taking its rightful place as the support service for the academic community.
