The Academic Center is mindful of today’s diverse student population. The Center uses approaches that encourage students to be mindful and responsible of their learning through the belief that effort and strategies are key to learning; intelligence grows with effort. Strategies for transformation include:
- Supplemental instruction provided to provide clarification of course material
- Provide study groups for needed courses
- Instruction designed to enhance student’s ability to learn
- Utilizing student’s course curriculum in order to achieve competent completion of required coursework
- Teacher-made supplemental materials
- Encouraging students to use Cornell Notes, annotating text and an advocate for their own learning
- Using technology to enhance student learning
Academic Center instructors work in close collaboration with the classroom instructors by utilizing course materials, course syllabi, assignment rubrics, as well as instructor’s feedback.
