Learning Communities

Learning Communities Statement

Please send learning community proposals to Jeff Abernathy by December 5th by using this form.

As you consider offering a learning community, please keep the following in mind.
By the completion of the learning community requirement, students should have:

  • Demonstrated improved communication abilities by revisiting research, writing and speaking skills that were addressed in the first year courses.
  • Drawn more definite connections between disciplines and created a coherent perspective.
  • Increased time on task and interaction with students in the learning community and thereby enhanced understanding and achievement.

By teaching in a learning community, faculty will have:

  • Broadened their pedagogical repertoire.
  • Increased their interaction with other faculty and students.
  • Promoted meaningful collaboration and experimentation.
