Details How can newly established Self-Access centers (SALC) with limited resources attract students to not only walk through the door, but to make regular visits? How can students, the majority of whom have never experienced such centers, make the best use of their time there? This presentation will outline how the presenter and her colleagues used push and pull activities to encourage greater and more meaningful student usage of their SALC.
