Learning Communities

Learning Communities at SLCC promote relationship building amongst students and faculty through linked or integrated courses. In Learning Communities, students enroll in two or more courses for at least one semester.

Examples of Learning Community curricular practices include:

  • Courses share a common theme
  • Courses provide community-building experiences
  • Courses share one or more assignments
  • Courses meet in one block
  • Courses are team-taught
  • Courses provide a joint syllabus
  • Assignments are evaluated collaboratively by teachers
