Uncommon learning opportunities

As a new school year gets underway, the Chapman Learning Commons (CLC) is introducing a raft of initiatives to serve its users better.?The CLC, located on level three of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, brings together technology and learning support for students, faculty, staff and community members.

New offerings this year include:

  • Student assistants based at the CLC help desk offer specialized help with learning technology and multimedia software, including support with blogs, wikis, iClickers and new iMac multimedia workstations (which include scanners).
  • A new “academic coaching corner” that features well-established peer coaching programs on campus. Help will be offered by upper-level students for issues ranging from study techniques to academic resources.
  • The Student to Scholar program, a student-led initiative, pulls together a suite of workshops on academic learning, library research, technology and lifestyle balance to help students develop well-rounded skills.
