The Center for Academic Enrichment (CAE) provides free individual and group tutoring to UNH Manchester students.

Staff from UNH Manchester's Center for Academic Enrichment (CAE) traveled to San Antonio this fall to present workshops on  student engagement and peer tutor training at the 32nd annual National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA) conference.

CAE Director Kim Donovan presented a workshop entitled, “My professor is on YouTube!”: Designing Learning Center Practices to Facilitate Student Engagement in Technology-Enhanced Classrooms." Christine Andrews, CAE assistant director and science support coordinator, presented a workshop called, "Peer Tutor Training for Collaborative Problem Solving," and April Flore, math support coordinator, presented a mini-engagement session called, "Importance of Language in Science and Mathematics."

Andrews and Flore also co-facilitated an hour-long workshop titled, "Peer Tutor Training: Experiential Learning Activities for Promoting Metacognition and Collaboration."

Founded in 1985, the NCLCA's mission is to "support learning center professionals as they develop and maintain learning centers, programs, and services to enhance student learning at the post-secondary level."
