Teaching Learning Center

TLC Mission Statement

The mission of the Teaching Learning Center is to provide faculty and staff with training and technical assistance to support instruction, with an emphasis on using technology to increase teaching effectiveness and student learning.

TLC Description

The Teaching Learning Center is the academic computing & technology center for faculty and staff at Los Angeles City College. The center provides assistance and training in the use of computer hardware and peripheral devices with particular emphasis on supporting classroom instruction. We also offer software training, including standard office applications, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as specialized multimedia applications and proprietary administrative software.

The center provides a pilot/demo location for exploring new technologies and a central repository of shared equipment allowing many departments to utilize more expensive items without incurring repeated costs. We coordinate

Internet facilitated distance education for the campus, to encourage and support the use of the Internet as a strategy for addressing facility constraints, student learning styles, and accessibility considerations.

The Coordinator of the TLC also serves as a representative for the academic departments on the campus’ web development team providing both direct support and assistance in the development of departmental and course web sites and serves as a liaison for the Academic Accommodations Committee to facilitate web site compliance with ADA  accessibility standards.

The Teaching Learning Center is arranged into two training/meeting areas. One area is a multimedia technology lab provided for faculty and staff’s needs, for use of the computers, workshops, demonstrations and presentations. The other area is for conferences and other small group activities, such as the book club program, and Title V reviews. The center provides a wide range of technical expertise and can assist in the use of conventional software such as Microsoft Office, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as the creation of web sites and multimedia instructional material. Special trainings are available for faculty and staff to update their knowledge of campus/district systems. Consulting and programming services are available by appointments only.

Staff Development Seminars and Workshops are offered to enhance personal and professional growth in the areas of computer literacy, technological proficiency, teaching and learning. Flex credit may be requested for technology workshops.
