The Integrated Learning System (ILS) is a learning experience that Academy of Learning Career College (AOLCC) has prided itself on from day one. This system offers students a self-directed approach to their learning that goes above and beyond.
Being put in control of your learning experience, you complete your coursework through practice exercises, writing, reading, and listening as opposed to passively listening to a lecture. With the help of a learning coach, you will also get the support necessary to help you succeed, while sharpening skills you can use for both your studies and your professional career.
Below, we’ll explain four ways that AOLCC’s Integrated Learning System could benefit you.
Learning Objectives: Helping You Find a Destination for Your Journey
Part of what makes up this multisensory learning experience is that it gives students clear goals and learning objectives. Although it’s difficult to prepare for a new career, this can become easier when your courses show you a map of where you’re at, and where you’re currently going. Your progress is measured through SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-sensitive) goals during your studies, which can help you celebrate your progress. The moment when you achieve a new goal, you’ll know that you’re one step closer to your future career!
Individual Learning: A Career College Tailored to Your Strengths
Students enrolled in career college programs all come with different strengths and proficiencies. This is why ILS is focused on individual learning. ILS focuses on enhanced individual learning to help you build on your strengths through education based on how you learn best—whether that is through visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learning, to name a few. With these learning styles in mind, AOLCC’s Integrated Learning System helps you gain the knowledge you need to prepare for your career.
One-on-One Support to Help You Grow
Many students worry that learning at their own pace online means forgoing the support of an instructor. However, with the Integrated Learning System, students receive one-on-one support. You can get support specific to your needs from facilitators through just-in-time assistance, helping you grow your confidence and knowledge of course subject matter.
High Interactivity: Getting You Involved Every Step of the Way
With our career college’s ILS, students at AOLCC receive an educational experience filled with engagement and interaction. As opposed to learning course material passively, you use workbooks, media, and exercises to help increase your involvement in the learning process. This type of interactivity can help transform your learning experience and help you build momentum en route to completing your studies.
Another aspect of the Integrated Learning System that helps AOLCC stand out among colleges in Alberta is how it allows students to learn how to apply their in-class learning. While using your studies to pursue your passion, ILS gives you practical experience right away, as opposed to only getting it upon starting a new job. With a hands-on approach to learning, and through our eLearning modules, you can acquire the skills you need for your career.
