The Student Learning Center (SLC) strives to assist faculty by collaborating to promote student success and retention. As you will see, there are a number of ways tutors and faculty can work together to make sure our students learn about and use the variety of educational services in the SLC effectively to enhance their performance in class.
Marketing with Class Visits and Student Learning Center Orientations
According to our student satisfaction surveys, instructors play a huge role in getting the word out about the Student Learning Center to students. At least 80% of students report they first heard about the SLC from an instructor or fellow student. Therefore, we do need your help with spreading the word about our services. And the best way you can do this is by either inviting one of our tutors to your class to talk about the SLC or by bringing your class to the center for an orientation. To schedule either one of these informative visits, please email the SLC interim director at Andrea.Baumgartel@seattlecolleges.edu.
Many instructors like to send students to the SLC with specific directions about what they want them to study. By using this referral form, you will not only be able to give the tutor guidance about what to focus on with the student, but the tutor will also provide you feedback about how the session went.
