Learning Resources

We assist students in fully utilizing their learning opportunities and in developing and refining the skills needed for academic excellence in the 21st century.

Integral to the educational mission of Middlebury College, Learning Resources develops, provides and coordinates a variety of offerings designed to  support and enhance the academic excellence and scholastic achievement of all Middlebury students.

To accomplish these goals we provide one-on-one educational sessions which focus on time and workload management, oral presentation skills including in class discussion skills, effective note-taking, reading skills enhancement, test taking preparation, etc. Enhancing performance in these areas maximizes students' academic success and scholastic standing. It is also our goal to assist students in forging relationships with all facets of Middlebury's learning community.

In collaboration with other professionals from the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Research, we also assist faculty in designing innovative, effective teaching environments and refining workload and time management skills. We prepare students for leadership roles as student research assistants, and student assistants for time management. 

Finally in collaboration with the faculty and the Commons,  Learning Resources also implements prevention and intervention initiatives for students who are at academic risk. The Director also works one-on-one with students who face challenges related to learning style or learning disabilities. 

We are open Monday - Friday 9AM to 5PM.

The Office of Learning Resources schedules all appointments personally.  If you are looking for help with Time Management, Study Skills, Oral Presentations or an ADA Consult, you can email Yonna McShane (mcshane@middlebury.edu) and Jennifer Bates (jbates@middlebury.edu).  Send one email to both, or call CTLR or stop by and we will put you in touch with them.
