"Providing Support for Instruction"
The Center for Independent Learning (CIL), an instructional support facility, is engaged in three missions to the Mesa College campus:
- to augment classroom instruction through individualized learning modules that students complete independently. Faculty may either select materials produced commercially or create their own with support from CIL equipment and staff. These may include a broad array of media formats ranging from models and collections to technology-enhanced learning modules such as videocassettes, slide/sound programs and interactive multimedia.
- to provide assistance to faculty, in learning to use and apply computer-assisted instruction (CAI) in the classroom. Faculty are assisted in designing and producing computer-based learning modules, presentations and/or multimedia, for use in classroom instruction, to be used independently by students in the Student Learning Center, or for delivery over the Internet.
- to provide assistance to Mesa College staff in learning how to use software applications that enhance efficiency and productivity in the workplace.
