Spelman College Is Tying It All Togother through the Living-Learning Program.
Cox, Eleanor
Spelman College's Living Learning Program is described. The program was developed to integrate classroom cognitive development with affective development acquired through formal and informal learning experiences offered by the student life division. Program activities are designed to expose students to a broad range of ideas through interaction with peers, faculty, and other role models. It also provides opportunities for students to acquaint themselves with the many problems of the real world and to utilize their liberal education as "avenues" of flexibility in the problem solving process. Specific objectives include: integrating classroom learning with residential education through small group sessions in dormitories, and offering panel discussions, seminars, debates, films, mini-concerts, and local field trips. Affective developmental modules or stages for the undergraduate years involve: activities to promote freshmen awareness of the liberal arts; exploration through elective courses and issue-oriented residential programs during the sophomore year; selection by juniors of program themes that complement or parallel the major; and integrating the humanities and social sciences during the senior year. Information is also provided on convocation, program staff, admission to the program, and recognition/awards. (SW)
