Dev Ed news for fall - Open House and learning communities
New students this fall may want to Save the Date for the Developmental Education Department
Open House on Thursday, August 27, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Aquinas Hall. You will be able to meet instructors, learn
about tutoring, see classrooms and prepare for success! Have you considered taking
part in available learning communities? The Developmental Education Department offers
If you placed into DEV 0114, Pre-Algebra, and DEV 0155, Basic Composition, consider taking those courses with the Developmental Education Block Program. The Block Program is a learning community designed to assist first-semester students
in forming strong peer and academic support networks within a team setting. There
is also a greater emphasis on advising and cross-disciplinary activities, including
a film project. Students in the block program are enrolled together in the same sections
of DEV 0114, DEV 0155, and COLS 1101.
If you placed in DEV 0145, Advanced Reading, and plan on taking PSY 1100 the same semester, consider enrolling in the Paired Program. Students in the Paired Program are enrolled together in the same sections of DEV 0145
and PSY 1100. Students learn cross-disciplinary reading strategies that can be applied
immediately to their work in PSY 1100. Besides highlighting the connections between
the two courses with combined assignments and coordinating assignment schedules, the
Paired Program also assists students in forming strong peer and academic support networks.
For more information on either the Block Program or Paired Program, contact Nicole
Clark, Advisor, Aquinas 240, at (614) 287-5360. Additional information about both
learning communities is also available online here.

New Dublin Regional Learning Center to open Aug. 31
One of Columbus State’s oldest regional learning centers—the Dublin Center on Shamrock Court—will close after Summer Semester finals week August 8, and reopen
for business August 31 on the new Dublin campus of Ohio University’s Heritage College
of Osteopathic Medicine (HCOM).
The new Dublin Regional Learning Center will be housed in HCOM’s Integrated Education
Center, located at 6805 Bobcat Way. The HCOM campus is just off U.S. 33 at Post Rd./161.
It's easy to get to from both the east and the west, by taking the Post Rd. traffic
circle right onto University Parkway.There's plenty of parking on the campus and it's
all within sight of the Integrated Education Center. Because the facilities are so
new, Google Maps hasn't quite updated some of the building addresses, but don't worry
because once you get to the location, it is easy to find your way around.
Columbus State’s classrooms and labs in the Integrated Education Center are located
on the third floor of the building.
The partnership with Ohio University HCOM will focus on innovation in healthcare education,
as well as coursework in all areas leading to the Associate of Arts and Associate
of Science degrees.
Associate degree and certificate programs can be completed at the Dublin RLC in Health
Information Management, Medical Coding, Nurse Aide, Patient Care Skills, Pharmacy
Technician and Phlebotomy, while traditional courses in psychology, English, communication,
mathematics, humanities, computer science, biology, chemistry and even classical mythology
and art history are also offered this fall.
For more information and directions to the new Dublin Regional Learning Center at
the OU Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, call (614) 287-7050, or visit the
Dublin Regional Learning Center webpage.
