Greetings! I’m Laura Renninger, Dean of the Ruth Scarborough Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning here at Shepherd University. Thank you for taking a moment to visit our site.
In 2009, we established a “Learning Commons” here at Shepherd – in essence, a one-stop shop where students can find assistance with writing, study skills, advising, the effective use of technology, and tutoring in any subject ranging from mathematics to foreign languages to music. And, a one-stop shop where teachers can find pedagogical and technological classroom resources and exchange ideas with colleagues; a place where excitement about learning permeates every corner, every hallway, and every room. The Scarborough Library, the “intellectual heart of the campus,” has provided us with the perfect spot.
Our mission to support teaching excellence and to foster learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom continues to flourish. In one centralized location one can now find all of the following resources and support programs: Academic Support, Instructional Technology, Assessment of Student Learning, Common Reading Information, the First-Year Experience (FYEX) Program, Faculty Development Workshops, New Faculty Mentoring, Academic Advisement Information, the Center for Teaching & Learning Library, the TRiO Student Support Services and Upward Bound Programs, and Career Services.
Please visit us soon and let us assist you with your learning needs.
