Learning Communities
What Faculty Are Saying About Learning Communities
  • “The learning community program provides a vehicle for students to bond and get to know one another quickly. I believe that students in a learning community are more likely to feel connected to the college and to feel like they belong in college than students who are not part of a learning community. The classroom atmosphere in a learning community can be more accepting and comfortable for students than in classes which are not part of a learning community.”

  • “Teamwork was very positive as students shared knowledge from the linked course to complete class assignments.”

  • “The students tend to bond and become a family away from home. They look out for each other. It was a nice experience to watch that happen.”

  • “Students were more comfortable with each other than in other classes.”

  • “My learning community students enjoy group activities and class hands-on applications. They tend to sit with members of their own groups and help one another. Also, if a student has a family emergency, he/she will contact one of the group members who will relay the message to the instructor and other members of the community.”

  • “I think working with the colleagues has been wonderful because we stay in contact, coordinate our game plan.”

  • “My students work better together and are more helpful to one another.”

  • “It’s very positive. It gets you to look at your teaching in another way, gives you a larger context for teaching. I think it's just potentially exciting, and it's always great to work with another faculty member, especially someone from a different division.”
  • “The students in my Math 80 learning community class this semester were attentive and polite. The students were comfortable asking questions and worked well together in groups.  In general, I feel that the students in my learning community classes get to know each other more quickly and bond better than students in my non-learning community classes.”
