The 5 Pillars of Learning Centers, with Penny Turrentine: #4. Establish Rapport with Your Students

In part four of a short series of podcast episodes, we speak with Penny Turrentine, Ph. D., Adjunct Faculty and Program Coordinator at Pima Community College, regarding another foundational pillar on which to build a successful Learning Center at your college or university.

Her recent publication, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Learning Centers (and then some…)presents fundamentals for learning center directors, such as welcoming each student and going above and beyond to show that you care. Penny gives examples of building rapport through playfulness, attending student games as a team, and training her staff for interactions with students.
