How do learning support resources connect to LifeMap?

For students, LifeMap links all of the components of Valencia (faculty, staff, courses, technology, programs, services) into a personal itinerary to help students succeed in their college experience.

Under the Valencia Essential Competency of an Educator: LifeMap, Valencia educators will design learning opportunities that promote student life skills development while enhancing discipline learning. Through intentional inclusion of growth-promoting strategies, faculty will facilitate the students' gradual assumption of responsibility for making informed decisions and formulating and executing their educational, career, and life plans.

In demonstration of this Essential Competency, the faculty member will:

  • guide students in developing academic behaviors for college success (e.g., time management, study, test and note taking strategies, etc.)
  • help students identify academic behaviors that can be adapted as life skills (e.g., library search skills, decision-making, communication skills, scientific understanding, etc.)
