Learning Center Staff Present to National Audience at Tutoring Conference

On Friday, October 22nd, five Georgia College Learning Center representatives, student staff included, presented at the Georgia Tutoring Association (GaTA) annual conference.  Nicole Collins, Lauren Moskowitz, Rosemary Macuch, Cece Crumbley, and Programs Manager Rebecca Cofer presented to both peer educators and national learning assistance administrators at the virtual conference. Presenting to a national audience, our topics included the Center’s Excel Bootcamp program, sense of community in learning centers, and effective ways to utilize social media as a means to engage students.  

Collins currently serves as the STEM-funded After Hours Coordinator for the LC, while Crumbley, Moskowitz, and Macuch are all current student staff in the Learning Center this semester. Georgia College was among one of the only schools in attendance that had student representation at the conference and also presented sessions that day.

GaTA fosters the recognition and importance of tutoring to enhance student success and hosts a conference every year; since COVID, this annual conference has been moved online.  The Learning Center is certified through the College Reading and Learning Association and holds accreditation by the International Center for Supplemental Instruction.
