The Learning Center: A Comprehensive Model for Colleges and Universities.
Martin, Deanna C.; And Others
Intended for use by educators responsible for developing post-secondary learning centers, this manual emphasizes the design and administration of such centers rather than the various aspects of skill instruction. Its seven chapters discuss the concept of a learning center; the components of the model, including a supplemental course, recruitment and selection of staff, the training of tutorial and teacher assistants, learning materials, distinct labs, noncredit readiness in content areas, and extension of the model; diagnosis of institutional and individual needs; instructional methodology, specifically listening, notetaking, study skills, vocabulary, and comprehension; affective considerations, with a discussion of a "relaxation" project; evaluation, including sample data and forms; and proposal preparation.
