CHAPTER 8

MANAGEMENT OF THE LEARNING RESOURCE CENTRES

8a ii). Explain the rationale for setting up a Learning Resource Centre (LRC)

8.4 Rationale for setting up a Learning Resource Centre

A learning resource centre is generated from the recognition of three facts:

  • Learning takes place through a variety of channels or avenues. Some ideas cannot be reliably communicated through books. Music, for example, must be heard paintings must be seen perfumes must be smell etc. This implies that any time two or more media are used to teach, multi media instruction occurs.
  • Individual differences. People are different from one another. Some learn things best by reading, others by hearing, and others by writing and most by combining two or more activities.
  • Need for private learning. Whilst some people learn best in groups, others on their own, and generally speaking we all need some kind of private learning from time to time.
