Academic Learning Centre
The Academic Learning Centre, formerly the Learning Support Centre opened with its first subject clinics in Maths, Programming, Physics and Electronics on 10th October 2005, and is now in its sixth academic year. The well appointed suite of rooms with internet access and printing and copying facilities provides a student-centred environment, where students can meet with subject lecturers in a relaxed setting outside of the classroom to discuss any queries they might have on a subject.
Subject support sessions are provided on a weekly basis during each term of the academic year, and in addition a highly successful summer programme has been provided for students taking repeat exams.
All of the subject support sessions delivered by the Learning Support Centre are free of charge and open to all students taking the subject as part of their course. Students attend from a broad spectrum of disciplines; Science, Engineering, Computing and Building and Architecture. Many of the regular attendees have built up good communication with the lecturers resulting in increased confidence facing assessments and exams. In turn lecturers who have delivered walk-in subject clinics have gained valuable additional insights into the student learning experience. Information on the Centre’s activities is disseminated via student publications, course lecturers, dedicated notice boards throughout the campus and the Centre’s own website. The CIT Academic Learning Centre is supported by the HEA.
