Faculty Resources

 

The TCC Learning Commons reinforces and supports the instruction students receive in the classroom. As a result, students master course content, use resources effectively develop learning strategies, and assume responsibility for their academic performance and professional goals.   

In addition, faculty are involved in the Learning Commons in a variety of roles, including tutoring, workshops and exam reviews, resource development, and tutor training. See the faculty collaboration tab below for more ideas.
