Community Learning Centers: A Reality for the Twenty-first Century.
Warford, Larry J.
This document provides information about the creation and implementation of 12 community learning centers at selected high schools within the Lane Community College (Oregon) district. Community learning centers are founded on the belief that high schools are the center of education in communities and that community colleges should take learner-centered curricula directly to the communities they serve. Through distance learning that employs a combination of synchronous telecourses, modem learning, and computer online facilities, learners aged 16 to retirement age can have access to higher education and continuing education opportunities during day, evening, and weekend hours. The facilities act as one-stop centers where high school students or community residents may register and pay for classes, attend telecourses, be tested, receive academic or financial aid counseling, or participate in any other function found at a traditional community college campuses. Included in this report are four figures and reproductions of Power Point presentation slides. (SL)
