What Next for Learning Communiites on our campuses?

What Next for LCs:

In the morning session, there was continued praise for the environemnt created within learning communites. In the end, we asked how these might work in the future of our own instututions.

  • LC related to teaching are already appreciated. We have professional/teaching develpment offices on our campus now and we really only need to invite participants for various aspects of student learning.
  • Transforming the institution but recognizing that institutional interests are better addressed through the learnng community model than through the traditional committee.

Institutional buy in requires buy-in from leadership.
Indeed, participation in learning communites is really
the only way to learn about them. We need upper adminitration
to participate in learning communitites.
