The Emporium Model
Examples: Mandatory Lab Hours Chosen by Students Mandatory attendance (e.g., a minimum of 3.5 hours weekly in the emporium) ensures that students spend sufficient time on task and receive ondemand assistance. These hours may be scheduled at the student’s convenience. Mandatory weekly group meetings enable instructors to follow up where testing has identified weaknesses or emphasize particular applications. Group activities help build community among students and with instructors. Louisiana State University: College Algebra Examples: PreScheduled Mandatory Lab Hours Mandatory attendance (e.g., a minimum of 3.5 hours weekly in the emporium) ensures that students spend sufficient time on task and receive ondemand assistance. These hours are scheduled by the institution for student cohorts. Mandatory weekly group meetings enable instructors to follow up where testing has identified weaknesses or emphasize particular applications. Group activities help build community among students and with instructors. Cleveland State Community College: Basic Math, Elementary Algebra and Intermediate Algebra Example: Lab Hours Chosen by Students An open attendance model can be used when students are highly motivated, respond well to greater flexibility and are accustomed to scheduling work in the emporium around their other course responsibilities.
