This vital collection of essays is designed to guide learning assistance professionals supporting student success initiatives in higher education.
Learning centers at institutions of higher education serve as interactive, academic spaces designed to reinforce and extend student learning in physical and/or virtual environments. These environments offer a wide variety of comprehensive support services and programs to enhance student academic success, retention, and completion rates by applying best practices, student-learning theories, and addressing student-learning needs from multiple pedagogical perspectives. Staffed by professionals, paraprofessionals, faculty, and/or trained student educators, learning centers reinforce the holistic academic growth of students by fostering critical thinking, metacognitive development, and academic personal success. This dynamic collection of scholarly articles, written by professionals in the field of learning assistance, addresses issues of interest to a broad range of academic professionals.
