Volume 4 of the League for Innovation in the Community College's Learning Abstracts include the following: (1) "Touching Students in the Digital Age: The Move Toward Learner Relationship Management (LRM)," by Mark David Milliron, which offers an overview of an organizing concept to help community colleges navigate the intersection between digital and learning revolutions; (2) "Learning from the Learning Colleges: Observations Along the Journey," by Kay McClenney, which offers observations on model programs and best-practices in learner-centered education; (3) "Evaluating Individual Student Learning: Implications from Four Models of Assessment," by Mary Hjelm and Ronald L. Baker, which presents an overview of the outcomes, grassroots, mandate, and institutional effectiveness models of evaluation; (4) "Advancing Learner-Centered Education at the State or Provincial Level," by Michael Skolnik and Roy Giroux, which argues that the advancement of learner-centered approaches is more likely when it percolates at the state or provincial level before going to a national level; and (5) "College Conversations on Learning," by Terry O'Banion and Mark David Milliron, which contends that extensive and intensive strategies for engaging conversations on learning can anchor an institutional effort to place learning as the first priority.
