    Reach Metacognitive Equity by Teaching Students How to Learn

    Many students come to college without the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to succeed. However, these skills can be increased rapidly and substantially by teaching students metacognitive learning strategies and helping them develop a growth mindset about intelligence. This webinar will present simple and effective learning strategies based on cognitive science principles. We will engage in activities to demonstrate strategies that transform students’ attitudes about learning. This transformation leads to increased student success, confidence, and motivation.

    Scaling Up: Strategic Design Changes in Learning Centers for the next generation of College Students

    Flexibility and innovation are hallmarks of learning centers and our profession. This has never been more true than our current era, particularly in light of our recent pandemic and the approaching “Demographic 25 cliff” that will impact post-secondary enrollment for a decade beginning in 2025. This webinar will critically examine key services and program elements that will enable LC’s to be strategic in our approach to supporting our unique student populations and the changing demographics that we’re experiencing. We will: discuss commonalities and differences across institutional types; examine the design elements of academic support services; begin a SWOT analysis to determine new opportunities for “moving the needle” on  campuses; identify institutional and external partnerships to improve student success; discuss potential funding sources for program improvements; and discuss data analysis and methodologies that will generate institutional support.

    helping students do better academic work

    Our institutions work diligently to attract students who can succeed. But when these students don’t do well, how exactly to assist them can be unclear. While helping students do better academic work can take many shapes and forms, such as tutoring, SI, coaching and so forth, the overall goal should be to help students improve the quality of contributions to their academic work.  This workshop will help participants accomplish this by sharing instantly usable tools and methods that can help any student work better, faster and with greater reward.

    about webinars

    purpose of webinars

    The purpose of Webinars is to advance NCLCA's mission to support learning center professionals as they develop and maintain learning centers, programs, and services to enhance student learning. The series gives learning assistance professionals a chance to participate synchronously in a relatively inexpensive and high quality professional development experience designed to foster their growth in the field of learning assistance.

    Presenters do more than share information; they bring the audience into the conversation about their topic allowing for networking, idea exchange and consultation. The webinar format allows for learning center professionals to learn in real time from and with peers without the burden of travel costs or as much time away from work as a conference would entail.

    what to expect

    • Webinars take place in real time via a web-based presentation transmitted over the Internet using a conferencing software platform called "Go-to-Webinar."
    • The presentation is designed to be interactive and includes a question and answer period.
