Integrated Learning Communities

In Integrated Learning Communities, instructors work together to coordinate content around a central problem or topic.

  • Learning communities facilitate peer support among students as, together, they confront the material from multiple disciplinary perspectives.
  • Integrative learning helps students understand the connections among disciplines.
