Developmental Education and Bridge Learning Lab

Developmental Education (DEVED) Department

The College Developmental Education program is an integral part of a college success curriculum for students who need to improve study techniques and learning strategies, academic computer skills, reading speed, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and critical reading, writing and thinking skills.  Courses are offered at two levels (pre-college and college) and provide individualized assistance for students who want to succeed in their college and career goals and need to become more academically competitive.

Bridge Learning Lab

Located in Rainier 104 and 108, the Bridge Learning Lab offers academic support through one and two credit classes in Study Skills, Reading, and Basic College Technologies.  Supported by in-class faculty, courses include self-paced modules on note taking, test taking, textbook reading, time management, reading comprehension, speed, vocabulary, and basic technology.  Strategies for achieving success in college are offered in weekly free workshops. Computer readiness modules are offered to help students become familiar with EvCC computer technology by navigating the EvCC web pages, Canvas, and by improving other basic computer skills.  These two credit courses are often a perfect complement to two, five-credit courses.  The computers in the Bridge Learning Lab are also available to any student during non-class hours.
