The Evaluation of the Calgary Learning Centre. Summary.
Conte, Richard; And Others
The report summarizes evaluation findings on the Learning Centre, a research and demonstration centre of the Calgary Society for Students with Learning Difficulties. The report addresses evaluation of formal research projects (on such topics as instrumental enrichment with low achieving adolescents); pilot projects (such as an animation film program and a mathematics skill group); the diagnostic and treatment components of the service program; and the public and professional education program which provides credit, noncredit, and practicum courses, seminars, and workshops. Three points are made in a summary of evaluation findings: that the centre has developed pilot research programs of promise; that the centre has established clinical credibility in the community; and that the centre has made a valuable contribution in the area of public and professional education. Recommendations are offered for the research program, service program, public and professional education program, and for the learning centre model. (CL)
