A Learning Community (LC) is the linking of two or more courses to encourage collaborative learning. Students and faculty become an ʻohana that work closely together to foster a deeper mutual understanding of course content, and create an enhanced classroom learning environment that is more engaging academically and socially.
Benefits Of Being A Part Of A Learning Community
Students work closely with their classmates and develop lasting friendships. LC students complete courses and persist at a higher rate than students not in LC. LC students are more likely to become involved in organized activities and to talk informally with other students.
