CLARK CONVERSATION CAFÉ
TO FOCUS ON LIFELONG LEARNING NEEDS IN THE COMMUNITY
Students, faculty and members of the general public are invited to attend the discussion forum on Wednesday, November 28 from 2-4 p.m.
VANCOUVER, Wash. -- What is your experience with lifelong learning? What would you like to see happen at Clark College to enhance lifelong learning for everyone in the community? Those questions will be the focus of the next Clark Conversation Café, sponsored by the college’s Teaching and Learning Center.
The discussion forum, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Wednesday, November 28 from 2-4 p.m. in Rooms 227 and 237 of the “T” Building. Clark College is located at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver. Seating will be available on a first-come first-served basis.
The session will be facilitated by Marcia McReynolds, adjunct professor in theater at Clark. McReynolds has trained over 10,000 people in the art of listening.
According to Gail Liberman, Director of the Teaching and Learning Center, the Clark Conversation Café series was created “to develop a deeper understanding and approach to education that is centered on lifelong learning and is truly focused on the learner.” Liberman said, “This is also an opportunity to increase student retention by ensuring that the educational process is meaningful and relevant and that it’s tailored to students’ individual needs and goals.”
The “T” Building is located on the west side of Fort Vancouver Way between McLoughlin Blvd. and Fourth Plain Blvd. For additional information, contact the Clark College Teaching and Learning Center at 360-992-2084.
