Getting to Know the LEC Team

Our dedicated team of professionals are committed to helping you achieve your goals here at MCNY. We encourage you to take an active part in your learning and meet our specialists for tutorials based on the self directedness model.

LEC Research Efforts – Teaching and Scholarship

The LEC is constantly working on marrying our teaching and scholarship efforts. The LEC’s research team [Kannan, Bauer, Lutsky & Alwan] worked on analyzing students’ learning goals. What we learned from this study actually helped us to refine our tutoring practices. This research was presented at the AAER Conference in November 2010. The LEC’s topic for this presentation – “Non-significant Findings and a Research Response in Self -Directed Learning”. Please click on the title below to access the PowerPoint presentation.

Tools for Independent Learning

Here at the LEC, we believe that students should supplement their independent learning with online resources. Please visit our page within our blog, titled, “Tools for Independent Learning”. In addition, we want to provide tools for specific learning goals including the link below focusing on reflective writing.
