Facilitating the Learning and Teaching Process Through an Allied Health Learning Center at New York City Community College: A Multi-Media Presentation.
Tuosto, August A.; Beitler, Lorraine
This document reproduces a filmstrip and accompanying narrative describing the Allied Health Learning Center at New York City Community College. Using a team of content faculty, specialists in learning methodology, and a media production staff, the Center serves 1,800 students and 180 faculty members in seven career departments. The primary goal of the Center is to facilitate the mastery of necessary learning skills in order to support and advance the instructional objectives within the career curricula. Diagnostic testing is provided and a comprehensive student data system has been developed. A Professional Learning Systems course was implemented to apply basic skills to a target freshman science course. In order to provide supplementary support to individual courses, the Center provides modules of instruction, multi-media aids, study group sessions and peer assistance in an open lab learning environment. Seminars are given to increase student proficiency in skills specifically related to licensure and certification examinations, and career information is disseminated. Faculty workshops and seminars are conducted to promote professional development. The continuous increase in student contact hours over a three year period indicates the effectiveness of the Center in meeting the needs of the diverse student population. (NHM)
