Quality Enhancement

        RCCC’s QEP Vision

 The educational philosophy of Rowan-
 Cabarrus Community College is that of a
 learning-centered environment rather than a
 teaching-centered environment. As a learning-
 centered institution, RCCC assists students
 in acquiring knowledge and skills through
 active learning and the use of technology. All
 areas of the college play an active role in
 developing an environment that supports and
 encourages our endeavor.




           Did You Know?
      Everyone is a partner! Faculty, staff,
      administration, the community work-
      force and students themselves will all
      benefit from our efforts.

      The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is
      a part of our reaffirmation with the
      Southern Association of Colleges and
      Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges.
      RCCC’s QEP demonstrates an
      institutional commitment to active
      learning through the use of technology.

            RCCC’S
  Quality Enhancement Purpose
          Enhancing Active Learning
         Through the Use of Technology



 Goal 1: Increase active learning
 opportunities through the use of technology
 in instruction.

 Goal 2: Support active learning
 opportunities through the use of technology
 in RCCC’s learning support centers.




     Technology is a tool which supports active
     learning.

     Active Learning involves students by
     encouraging them to use higher-order
     thinking skills such as, thinking about,
     working with, and/or commenting on course
     materials as opposed to passive absorption
     of the information. (for a full definition of active
     learning, go to www.rowancabarrus.edu/qep)
