statement of purpose

As an official publication of the National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA), The Learning Assistance Review (TLAR) seeks to foster communication among higher education learning center professionals. Its audience includes learning center administrators, teaching staff, and professional or student worker tutors, consultants, mentors, and faculty members and administrators who are interested in improving the learning skills of postsecondary students. TLAR is available free of charge to all NCLCA members.

NCLCA defines a learning center at institutions of higher education as interactive, academic spaces which exist to reinforce and extend student learning in physical and/or virtual environments. A variety of comprehensive support services and programs are offered in these environments to enhance student academic success, retention, and completion rates by apply 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 are designed to reinforce the holistic academic growth of students by fostering critical thinking, metacognitive development, and academic personal success.

TLAR aims to publish scholarly articles and reviews that address issues of interest to a broad range of academic professionals. Primary consideration will be given to articles about program design and evaluation, classroom-based research, the application of theory and research to practice, innovative teaching strategies, student assessment, and other topics that bridge the gaps within our diverse and growing profession.

The journal is published twice a year. All submissions are subject to a masked, double-blind review process. Administrators use their published work to continue the growth and development of the learning commons space on campus, while faculty may use their publications toward promotion and tenure at institutions where student success initiatives are rewarded as part of the process.
