New students are often not sure exactly where the Learning Center is or what its purpose is. To make students more aware of and more comfortable with the Learning Center, we encourage you to bring your class over for a short 15 minute “field trip.” While here, students will be introduced to the staff, receive an overview of tutoring and writing support, get more information about disability support and accommodations, and learn about testing procedures.
If you prefer to have a Learning Center staff member come to your class instead of coming to us, the Learning Center offers class visits which last 5-10 minutes and provide a quick overview of the services available in the Learning Center.
Learning Center can also come to your class and offer a longer workshop on academic support topics such as classroom behaviors and study habits of successful students, efficient planning to do well on exams, effective reading strategies, etc. Please see the list below of specific workshops offered by the Learning Center.
