One of the major objectives of the Student Think Center is to help students build solution-oriented thinking skills. The center will focus on student learning by making the thinking and learning processes more apparent. The intent is to produce students who gain skills at comprehending content and also become better able to manage real-world situations in adaptive and resourceful ways.
The Think Center model establishes a deliberate plan to encourage the learner to grow beyond basic recall to making judgments about ideas and materials, thus internalizing the information. Students will have an opportunity to join an environment designed to foster learning and identify effective strategies. This, in turn, increases the capacity of students to identify and evaluate potential solutions, which can enhance both comprehension and application.
In order to empower students to understand and expand their current learning practices, students will complete online assessments that will be forwarded to the Student Development Specialist. From this information and meeting individually with the student, an individualized academic plan will be developed. This plan will provide students with personal insight and deeper understanding about the way they process and organize information, which could help both academically and in “real world” learning situations.
