A Learning Community is a pair of two or more courses, often with the same theme. In a Learning Community, two or three professors coordinate class work, assignments, and field trips to assist the linked group of students discover and explore connections between distinct and seemingly unrelated fields of study.
Learning Community classes are smaller, more informal, and more interactive, so that the students and faculty get to know one another better by sharing ideas, considering one another’s viewpoints, and helping one another learn. Learning Community faculty meet frequently to discuss their students’ progress, and academic coaches are assigned to work with the students under faculty members’ supervision.
